When was the last time Georges St. Pierre knocked anyone out?

After rattling off four consecutive unanimous decision victories inside the Octagon, it's safe to say it's been a long time since the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion has been able to finish anyone on the feet.

Still, "Rush" demonstrates superior striking when the situation calls for it.

Just ask Josh Koscheck, who was jabbed into mediocrity at the UFC 124 event in late 2010. Or his teammate, Jon Fitch, who went ass over tin cups in his quest to wrestle the 170-pound title from the clutches of Captain Canada in late 2008.

You can thank Freddie Roach for that.

The longtime boxing trainer is expecting a visit from the surgically repaired champ as he gears up for a potential title unification bout opposite Carlos Condit at the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event on November 17, 2012 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

"He might be in next week to work on some hands. He did do some boxing with Eric Brown while I was away a couple weeks ago, so he has started punching a little bit, he's getting a little more active every day. I think he's supposed to be here either this week or next week."

The Roach coach breaks it all down for Fight Hub TV after the jump.
