Kos: UFC will get GSP back as Hendricks can’t sell PPVs
UFC welterweight contender Josh Koscheck recently appeared on an ESPN roundtable, and discussed the potential return of former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
“I buy [St-Pierre returning this year],” said Koscheck as transcribed by MMATorch. “He's got a lot of money, so I don't think he cares either way. Here's the reason he'll fight, though. Even though the UFC and St-Pierre have a little bit of a grudge match going on right now, the UFC is going to suck up its ego and pay St-Pierre to come back.”
“The UFC is losing money at 170 pounds because Johny Hendricks isn't going to sell pay-per-views. We know that. GSP is the pay-per-view king. The UFC will offer him something to come back and fight again. I can guarantee you that. It's all about the money.”
“How in the hell would they give Nick Diaz a title fight coming off two losses in a row? I should fight for the title if that's the case. You question the sport if things like that happen. That doesn't look good for the sport if Diaz is next in line for the title. Rory MacDonald, Tyron Woodley – those are good candidates for being next in line for the title.”
So what you think UG? Will be see GSP back in the Octagon this year? And why?
