Georges St-Pierre

Georges St-Pierre recently spoke about a potential return to the UFC. In an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast, GSP revealed for whom he would come back.

Previously, the former world champion retired from the UFC in 2017. GSP submitted Michael Bisping and cemented his legacy as one of the greatest fighters in the organization’s history.

St-Pierre has relentlessly been linked with a return to the Octagon ever since. Even though he left the sport over three years ago, many names have been touted for a possible return combat.

However, Georges has revealed that he would return to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. If given the chance, GSP feels he would give in to the temptation and come back to battle Khabib.

Furthermore, Georges has also called the Russian the ‘scariest pound for pound fighter’. St-Pierre said: ‘For me, Khabib is one of the scariest because he’s beating you down, he’s not only beating you but he’s breaking you mentally.”

Comeback fight for Georges St-Pierre?

Georges St-Pierre was touted for a comeback ever since he first retired back in 2013. He held records for most wins in a title bout and the second longest combined title streak in UFC history (2,204 days). Eventually, he returned four years later, fighting Bisping for the middleweight title.

The 39-year-old recently resumed his training in the gym with legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach. “If Khabib wants me to fight, he needs to hide himself while I’m in the gym training.” Moreover, Nurmagomedov expressed his interest in confronting St-Pierre for his 30th career fight.

St-Pierre doesn’t want to fight after he turns 40-year-old, which will be on May 19, 2021. Khabib, on the other hand, has taken a vow not to fight, following his father’s demise. With both fighters currently retired, a lot would have to change if a fight is to take place!
