In a new interview on the Jim & Sam Show, Georges St-Pierre has spoken out about his chances of making a comeback to the UFC next year.
“I’m at the point that when I train, I feel very confident, feel strong, feel very great. I feel better than when I was 25,” the 37-year-old said. “But sometimes, I hear a lot of BS stuff and things, and I’m like ‘do I really want to go back into that circle?’
“At this point, I think I’m going to take the holidays, think about it, and see what’s going to happen.”
GSP went on to express hesitation about returning to fight for a title given all that that would entail.
“I understand they have a business to run, but if it’s to go back, and run for another title reign… Can I go back to fight for a title? Then you fight for a title, you have to keep the belt, defend it, and defend it. I don’t want to (put) the whole division on hold.”
The good news is that despite a battle with Colitis, St-Pierre appears to now be healthy again, but it’s clear that thoughts about when would be the best time to hang up his gloves is weighing heavily on his mind.
“You don’t want the sport to retire you. You want to retire from the sport. That is always one of my goals.”
