Georges St-Pierre interview with Joe rogan

Earlier this week, we learned that, after months of rumors and conflicting reports, former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has agreed to the terms of a brand new UFC contract. With this development, we can expect to see the welterweight great back in the Octagon sometime in the next few months – though it’s not known who he’ll fight or even what division he’ll fight in.

“If he’s coming back it’s because he knows he’s healed up and probably better than ever. It’s going to be really interesting to watch him return because he’s different in the way he approaches fighting than I think anybody before him, and he influenced so many people after him. He almost has no ego when it comes to listening to his coaches and absorbing information.”
