Georges St-Pierre Is Ready To Return To The UFC

Georges St-Pierre revealed last night that he is ready to return to competition, providing that his management and UFC can strike a new deal.

The legendary fighter has been away from the octagon for nearly three years and is set to make another run in the premier MMA organistion. After eking out a split-decision win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, the former welterweight champion took a indefinite break but is set to come out of his hiatus.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, he expressed his desire to return to the cage following a mini training camp to see where his body was at;


"What I did is I did a training camp to see where I'm at, I've been training, but being in shape and being in fighting shape is something different. I did a training to push myself and go back to the highest level of competition. I didn't fight, but I put myself through a training camp and I sparred and everything, and I did it successfully. Now I know for a fact that I could go back and fight, if my management and the UFC get to an agreement.

The 35-year-old also reiterated that he is in his physical peak, while his passion for the sport still remains, adding;

"I love my sport and I still feel I'm at my best right now. The clock is running. I'm not getting any younger. I'm in the peak of my career and if there is a shot, there is another goal, another run, I better do it and do it quick, because it is time to do it now."

Potential opponents have already been lined up with the newly-minted middleweight champion Michael Bisping claiming he has been in touch with the Canadians management team, while a super-fight with Anderson Silva - a fight in the making for years - or Conor McGregor - which was tentatively in the works for UFC 200 - would generate an incredible amount of buzz. Who do you want to see as GSP's next foe? Sound off in the comments section below.
