Georges St-Pierre Hints At Sensational UFC Comeback Amid Talks Of Super-Fight

Georges St-Pierre has revealed he's open to coming out of retirement and return to the UFC amid talks of a super-fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

A blockbuster showdown between St-Pierre and Nurmagomedov has been mooted after Dana White said he'd entertain the bout.

And the Canadian megastar is willing to return to the famed Octagon after the undefeated Russian called for a showdown in April 2021.

Speaking to RDS, 'GSP' said: "I'm still in good shape, not because I have a fight coming up, but because I like to stay that way.

"Having said that, I'm not in fighting form. If I had a fight, I'd have to go to training camp."

He added: "I just got into the Hall of Fame, I'm retired and I'm fine.

UFC boss White says he's prepared to make Nurmagomedov vs. St-Pierre.

"At the end of the day, the Conor McGregor [rematch], I know Conor has wanted that fight since the last one [in October 2018]," he explained.

"That's a fight to make, but I don't know. We'll see how this plays out. Sure, [I would be open to St-Pierre] if it's his last fight. This guy's been great to the company, great to the sport. I like Khabib a lot. I would do anything Khabib wanted to do."
