Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was expected to make his mixed martial arts (MMA) return at middleweight, battling Michael Bisping for the “The Count’s” 185-pound title.
So much for that idea.
Now “Rush” is stuck without a date to the big dance, but rest assured he won’t be targeting a 170-pound slugfest opposite Robbie Lawler, who already told the French-Canadian to stay retired.
“I think Georges is gonna pick the opponent that’s gonna be the best for him to get a victory and sell a lot of pay-per-views,” Lawler told ESPN’s 5ive Rounds podcast (via MMA Fighting). “I don’t think he wants to fight me. I have to win a couple fights and beat a couple people up first.”
Lawler won’t have to worry about St-Pierre — or anyone else for that matter — until he first gets past Donald Cerrone at the upcoming UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) event this summer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
