Boxing coach Freddie Roach breathed new life in the possibility of former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre returning to the cage when he revealed earlier this month that the two were planning a mock training camp to see if the desire and drive is still there.
It rejuvenated hope for St-Pierre fans, but UFC president Dana White still doubts that the Canadian will ever fight again.
“I highly doubt it’s going to happen because GSP’s been off for too long and has a ton of money,” White told the Los Angeles Times. “You don’t do a six-week camp to learn if you have the hunger. You either know it or not. Robbie Lawler knows it, he’s hungry, he trains like an animal.
“You’re either hungry and an animal or you’re not.”
White learned of the training camp through Roach, but remains skeptical that it will lead to a comeback.
“It’d be great if he comes back, yes. I love Georges St-Pierre — amazing athlete — but comeback talk? I laugh at it. To be a world champion, you have to be hungry.
“That’s not GSP. Not even close.”
