Have The UFC Reached Out To Georges St-Pierre?

Georges St-Pierre may be retired but he’s still asked about a potential return.

St-Pierre is set to be inducted in the UFC Hall of Fame for his career accomplishments. “Rush” hung up his gloves with a pro record of 26-2. He is the longest-reigning UFC Welterweight Champion in the promotion’s history. GSP retired back in February 2019.

Reporter Chisanga Malata took to his Twitter account to reveal that he had a conversation with St-Pierre.
Rush” was asked whether or not the UFC have contacted him.

As seen in the post, St-Pierre said the UFC “have not made me an offer yet” for a potential “superfight” with UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. In the past, UFC President Dana White hasn’t been on board with booking St-Pierre vs. Nurmagomedov. Recently, he has warmed up to the idea although he still feels “Rush” would be best served to stay retired.

Back in July, St-Pierre told TMZ Sports that he doesn’t want to put himself through a rough camp again and feels there’s more upside to staying at home.

“Do I really want to go back into a hardcore training camp, two months, put myself in jail so to speak, and getting ready for hell? No, I don’t. I’ve done it for a very long time. Unfortunately, in my sport, there are too many guys that retired too late and I do not want to be one of these guys. I’m very fortunate; I’m healthy, and I’m also wealthy. I came at the right time. I made a lot of money, and I think when I measured and calculated the pros and cons it’s better that I stay retired.”

The general consensus is that St-Pierre has nothing to prove. Throughout his career, he’s beaten the likes of B.J. Penn, Matt Hughes, Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, and Michael Bisping to name a few. He even captured the UFC Middleweight Championship along his journey.
