Georges St-Pierre Open To Fight In Exhibition Or Charity Matches
Former UFC double champion Georges St-Pierre has ruled out competing at the highest level. Instead, he’s made himself available for exhibitions and charity matches.
The Canadian MMA veteran is known for his absolute dominance in the UFC.
Numerous times St-Pierre was rumored to return to the octagon, but he insists that his best days are past him. The 40-year-old was linked with Khabib Nurmagomedov for a fight, but both fighters did not show any interest.
If you’ve been following the fighter on social media, you can tell he is still as fit at the age of 40 as he was in his fighting years. His last appearance was at UFC 217 where he defeated Michael Bisping to don the UFC middleweight strap on his UFC return.
“I’m telling you, I’m not going to fight again to prove that I’m the strongest man in the world,” He said in a conversation with Haymakers’ Robin Black. “This part of my life is over because I believe my best years are behind me.”

“However, for a charity or a fun competition as a novelty fight, I might compete again, whether that’s boxing, grappling, or whatever. That might be interesting because I’m a competitor inside of me and to do it for fun, something that would maybe not affect my legacy because it’s for a different reason, I could do it,” he said.
