Masvidal Wants GSP Back To Send Him Away
Another UFC star has thrown their hat into the ring for a chance to welcome Georges St-Pierre back into the Octagon.
Following welterweight champion Kamaru Usman’s continued invitation to GSP to face him in an 170-pound super fight, UFC BMF champion Jorge Masvidal is looking for his chance to “baptize” one of the greatest of all time.
“Well, they’ve said this about me, that I resurrect fighters and then I retire them again. So, I wouldn’t mind if GSP jumped on that campaign,” Masvidal said to Submission Radio of the French Canadian who retired officially in 2019. “In all honesty, as a competitor, I want to f*cking break his face. I want to go out there and give him everything I got. But I respect the time what he’s done.
“He took I don’t know how many years off, came back, beat Bisping for the legitimate middleweight title. Dude’s a stud. He’s a f*cking animal, bro. I would put everything into my being, into my soul, to end this individual, because he’s that good.”
“He’s the type of fighter, this sh*t would require a nice training camp, isolation away from the world and just focus on the task, just day in and day out, cause he’s a hell of a competitor, and I’m not taking a back seat to nobody in this division. So, I would love it,” Masvidal said of a hypothetical fight.
“You can’t compare Usman to GSP or nothing,” Masvidal said. “Even if he’d be a bad style for GSP or not—which I don’t think he is—you couldn’t compare them. And then after GSP because of the sheer volume and stuff, I definitely throw my boy [Tyron] Woodley in there, Robbie Lawler as well. I mean, welterweight has just had some psychopaths in that weight class that are just mean individuals, that are athletic as hell.
“I mean, Robbie was just sheer violence when he had that title. Same thing with Woodley, man. With Woodley, all it takes is one shot and the fight is over. And he can wrestle his ass off too. So, there’s just some great studs, man. I think I got in the “who guy”—sh*t, I think I got the easy draw, man. I used to f*ck with my boy T-Wood and Robbie man. I think my work’s cut for me obviously, I don’t take nobody lightly that has two hands.”
