Firas Zahabi: With Georges St. Pierre on Leave, Door Open for Rory MacDonald

By Staff Mar 5, 2014
Trainer Firas Zahabi, on “Beatdown,” discussing Rory MacDonald’s view on the welterweight division and Georges St. Pierre’s hiatus:

“The door’s open now, and that’s a motivator for sure. I think what relieves Rory more are all the questions [that have stopped]. Are you going to fight Georges? I think he was getting enough of it. He was adamant about saying no. He didn’t want to fight Georges. Georges didn’t want to fight Rory. I didn’t want them to fight, but it seemed like the whole world wouldn’t stop asking until we gave them the yes answer. I think all three of us are glad that those questions are done and I think there’s a new motivation now for Rory and myself and Georges. We’re turning a new chapter in our lives and who knows what’s going to happen? It’s exciting.”
