Just days after UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman mentioned Georges St-Pierre's name when discussing his next title defence, the 39-year-old has shown off his impressive physique ahead of a potential return to the octagon.
Usman, who defeated Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251 on Fight Island after his original opponent Gilbert Burns tested positive for Covid-19 and was pulled from the event, has already stated he wants a super fight next time around.
Despite UFC president Dana White saying that Burns will be next in line for a title fight, Usman said he would "love" a bout with the legendary St-Pierre.
"The next after Masvidal? I don't know, that's up to the promotion," the Nigerian Nightmare said to Insider after Friday's weigh-ins. Whoever they throw at me, is who I'm going to take on. I don't like picking and choosing.
"Of course, I would love Georges St. Pierre."
GSP, who is considered by many as the greatest of all time, defended the welterweight title nine times.
After a successful career in the sport, St-Pierre offically announced his retirement in 2019 after amassing a record of 26-2 but rumours of a potential return have been rife, especially after the UFC asked fans who Usman should face next. (Check out the picture on the far right)
One thing is for certain. He looks in great shape as rumours swirl. The 39-year-old posted several videos of himself pulling off cartwheels and flips, as well as throwing medicine balls.
"I'm trying to keep up with my routine. Always remember that consistency is the key!" he captioned alongside the clips.
St-Pierre held the belt for 2,204 days between April, 2008 and December, 2013 before vacating and after a four year hiatus, he eventually returned to action to defeat Michael Bisping for the middleweight title.
