Video: Robbie Lawler: I'd KO Georges St-Pierre if he comes back

New, comments

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler says he'd knock GSP out if he returns to the UFC.

Georges St-Pierre is still on his self-imposed hiatus from Mixed Martial Arts, although he has been teasing a return for quite some time now. The man currently holding the welterweight title GSP had for years, is Robbie Lawler, and when asked about a potential bout against the future hall-of-fame, his answer was simple.

"Yeah, I'd knock GSP out if he comes back," Lawler said on his first ever periscope session.

He also spoke about St-Pierre's teammate and stated that he's "not sure if he'll fight Rory again" after already beating him twice, including the brutal 5-round Fight of the Year candidate last July.

While he says doing these types of Periscope Q&A's isn't his thing, he did discuss various topics such as his weight, his upcoming title defense, Luke Rockhold being his favorite fighter, and being part Filipino.

Lawler will look to defend his belt against former interim champ Carlos Condit this Saturday at UFC 195.
