Firas Zahabi was in Vancouver last night coaching Rory MacDonald and Yves Jabouin, but in his post-fight interview, generally the topic of Georges St-Pierre comes up:
Ariel Helwani: You notice I have mentioned Georges St-Pierre’s name, you keep mentioning his name. This is why we keep mentioning Rory and George in the same sentence, cause of you.
Firas Zahabi: That’s fine with me.
Ariel Helwani: Are they going to fight each other?
Firas Zahabi: No
Ariel Helwani: I had to ask. How’s he doing by the way.
Fires Zahabi: He’s doing fantastic. He’s doing amazing.
Ariel Helwani: You think he’ll be back?
Firas Zahabi: I think so. I think there’s a lot of fire left in him. Especially since he got injured, he’s more motivated than ever. He’s was just about to start sparring again before he got injured. I think there’s a lot of martial arts left in him.
