UFC President Dana White has apparently changed his mind and is “leaning” against Georges St. Pierre returning to the Octagon, but the former welterweight champ still hasn’t called it quits.
If you missed it, recently White stated he believes GSP isn’t coming back, since according to him, the star has “got a lot of other options”. White also questioned whether St. Pierre was motivated to fight anymore, since he’s no longer “hungry” for “a lot of things.”
Well, GSP recently spoke to the Winnipeg Sun, and while discussing White’s comments, the 33 year-old stated:
“He says he’s sure I won’t come back, that’s his opinion,” said St-Pierre. “I train, I keep myself in shape. I have marks on my body because my body bruises easily and I’m training hard.”
“It doesn’t mean I’m coming back, but it doesn’t mean I’m not coming back,” GSP added. “I’m thinking about it.”
Although it’s been quite a while now since St. Pierre competed (November, 2013), it’s interesting he hasn’t said he’s done fighting. Despite the fact he’s undergone another knee surgery since his win over Johny Hendricks. So, clearly he must believe a comeback could take place.
St. Pierre also added in the interview that the UFC has said some “nice words” regarding more extensive PED testing, but that he won’t consider fighting again, until new procedures are in place.
The Canadian stepped away from fighting having won 12 straight bouts, and carrying a record of 25-2.
