UFC News: Conor McGregor reveals next move, Zahabi gives GSP update

Meanwhile, Georges St-Pierre’s head coach Firas Zahabi says the former welterweight and middleweight champion will return to the Octagon for the most ‘interesting’ fight.

“It’s hard to say, honestly. It’s hard to say,” Zahabi told TSN’s Robin Black. “I think Georges is going to get better, get back in the gym, he’s going to feel his body out and see what he wants.

“And see what’s the most interesting epic fight out there.”

And finally, former WWE commentator Jim Ross is adamant Ronda Rousey will be a success in the WWE, despite her suffering back-to-back defeats in her last two outings inside the Octagon.

“It will be as successful now as it would have been then. She’s a star and her star’s shining, and I think some of those fans that actually had the nerve to say that she was not as good as we thought she was, is pretty ignorant,” he said during an appearance on Submission Radio.

“She changed the game, she opened the door that these other women are walking through and making a bunch of money. And Gina Carrano will get a lot of that credit, and she should, but Ronda was the one who put the thing on the map and Ronda was the one who got into the UFC and opened the door for all these other women. 

“Now they’ve got weight classes as you guys know, and there’s a lot of young women that here to forward would not have made a dime really in fighting if it hadn’t been for a platform like UFC.

“Ronda’s a star and I would’ve been as motivated to sign her now as I would’ve been five years ago.”
