Once Georges St-Pierre has recovered from his battle with ulcerative colitis, the star’s head coach believes the fighter will look for an “epic fight”.

Recently Tristar head coach, Firas Zahabi, spoke with Robin Black from TSN. While doing so, Zahabi said that when the former wetlerweight and now middleweight champ gets “better”, he’s going to seek out the “most interesting”, biggest fight. Zahabi also mentioned Conor McGregor, and even Floyd Mayweather, while discussing possible opponents for St-Pierre.

The latter returned to cage for the first time since 2013 in November, and choked out Michael Bisping to win the UFC’s 185 title. Since then it was announced that St-Pierre has ulcerative colitis, and the Canadian has vacated the middleweight belt.
