It remains to be seen whether Georges St-Pierre fights again, but recently famed boxing Freddie Roach, hinted at Conor McGregor as a possible opponent.

For months now, St-Pierre has expressed an interest in fighting for the UFC’s lightweight title and facing champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. There’s also been plenty of talk about a bout between GSP and McGregor happening at some juncture.

Recently GSP’s longtime boxing coach, the aforementioned Roach, spoke with Brendan Schaub. While doing so, Roach had this to say about the Canadian star’s future (quotes via MMA Mania):

“I think one more. Just one,” Roach said. “The Irish boy. He’s got a big mouth. We’ll make the weight. Georges is on a new diet; it’s doing really great. We wanted to prove that we could go up in the higher weight division, and we did that. Then Dana got mad that we dropped that title. We want to go the lower weight now and be a three-time world champion, three weight divisions.”

St-Pierre hasn’t fought since November, 2017, when he defeated Michael Bisping to add the middleweight title to a resume that already included the welterweight championship.
