TRAINER WANTED GSP TO WAIT, BUT HE’LL BE READY FOR COMEBACK FIGHT

George St. Pierre may be returning to the Octagon against Carlos Condit at UFC 154, but if his trainer had his way, that wouldn’t be the case. Said GSP’s trainer Firas Zahabi:

“It was tough. I would have preferred, obviously, if he could have waited a little longer. I think it would have been the best, more ideal, but Georges really wanted to fight. The fans wanted to see him fight. The fight’s coming to Montreal. I told Georges, ‘Let’s do one last sparring. Let’s see where you’re at in sparring.’ And he did great. He went all his rounds. He went with every UFC fighter. He looked fantastic, and we said, ‘Look, you’re ready. Let’s do it.’”
