Georges St-Pierre is a mixed martial arts legend who made his name in the octagon for UFC.
GSP still belives that if he were to come back today he would be the best in the business.
Georges St-Pierre had his last fight on November 16, 2013 when he defended his title by defeating Johnny Hendricks in a controversial split decision bout. GSP vacated the title on December 13, 2013 as he needed to take some time off from MMA, hinting at a possible return in the future.
On March 27, 2014, St-Pierre announced on Twitter that he had torn his left ACL during training and the injury would require surgery.
Although GSP was medically cleared to compete on October 17, 2014, it was unclear if he had any plans to come back to MMA. He spoke with former UFC star, Chael Sonnen regarding a potential comeback:
"I believe if ever I want to come back and fight I could be the best in mixed martial arts if I find the fun and I have the feel for it again."
"If I train hard and I have the pleasure to do it, I believe I can still be on top.”
UFC President, Dana White gave his opinion about Georges St-Pierre making a potential comeback, saying the following:
“The longer Georges is out, the harder it is to come back, Georges definitely doesn’t need the money. He’s doing movies. He’s doing other things right now so who knows?”
Currently, Georges St-Pierre is helping fellow Canadian Rory MacDonald train for his big fight against current Welterweight Champion, Robbie Lawler on July 11th.
Still got it?
Georges St-Pierre is a former two time Welterweight Champion of the UFC and has defended the title nine times and currently holds the record for most successful title defenses for the championship as well as most consecutive defenses.
There is no doubt that at just 33 years of age, the French-Canadian fighter can still make an impact in the UFC if he returns, and for the sake of the sport, MMA fans will be praying that he does.
