Those of you who doubted Georges St-Pierre‘s last return may have a different view next time around.
GSP faced and dethroned Micheal Bisping at UFC 217 for the middleweight belt back on November 4th, but vacated the title 31 days later. According to GSP, he was forced to drop the title due to a “sickness” he obtained gaining weight for the matchup with Bisping.
Now that most of his “worst” symptoms are resolved, GPS revealed on The MMA Hour that he hasn’t officially closed the door on his UFC career just yet. In fact, the former reigning UFC welterweight champion would return for “something that excites” him.
I’ve not closed the door (on my career). And also, I will have to think about what weight (I return at), at 185, 170, 155, what would be the weight. I’ve won the title at 170 many times. Doesn’t mean I cannot go back and try to go for the title, but for me, now that I’m at the end of my career, if I do something, it needs to be something that excites me, something that is a win-win situation that can elevate me. I’ve said it many times. I know I repeat myself, but it’s the truth.
While his health isn’t at 100% , the Canadian born MMA great may return in a few months, if his health stabilizes and the opponent is worth it for his legacy.
I can’t fight right now, and things in MMA change very rapidly. I don’t know. Maybe in a few months a guy will win a title and he’s going to be the new pound-for-pound king, and maybe that will excite me. Who knows?
