Sonnen seems to still have belief that Georges St-Pierre will once again grace the Octagon at some point in the near future. When talking about who he will face Sonnen also had some words to say,
“It will be against Conor it what will be the biggest fight in MMA history”
Chael Sonnen is of course speaking of the one and only Irish native Conor “The Notorious” McGregor. Conor last fought Eddie Alvarez at UFC205, 12 November 2016. He subsequently won the fight in just 3:04 of the very first round. This fight made history with Conor becoming the 3rd man in UFC history to win two belts in two different weight divisions, the other two men being (Randy Couture & BJ Penn). As we are all aware Conor is yet to still step foot back into the Octagon.
With Conor coming off a loss in the boxing world against the legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr, it is more than certain we will see him fight again in the Octagon sometime this year. The match up between Georges St-Pierre is seeming very realistic at this particular moment. “GSP” holds a record of 26-2 and is the 4th Fighter in UFC history to claim two titles in two different divisions (Welterweight & Middleweight).
GSP also holds the record for the second longest UFC combined title reign in the organisations history with (2,204 days). St-Pierre last defeated Michael “The Count” Bisping at UFC217 on November 4, 2017 which showcased the come back of GSP after his retirement 4 years prior. GSP defeated Bisping by 3rd round rear naked choke.
GSP later vacated his title.
