There has been a lot of talk with the return of Georges St-Pierre.

With his historic win over Michael Bisping at UFC 217, GSP became the fourth fighter in history to become a two-weight UFC world champion. St-Pierre says that he is contractually obligated to fight interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker next, if he decides to continue competing. However, many fans and pundits are all clamoring over a matchup between GSP and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

TMZ along with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley caught up with St-Pierre following his big win and asked the newly crowned champ if he foresees a fight with McGregor in the future.

“Rush” mentioned that his weight was at about 191 pounds the night of his fight against Bisping. Interestingly, St-Pierre’s coach John Danaher recently stated that GSP struggled to put on weight for the middleweight bout and weighed close to what he did for most of his welterweight bouts for UFC 217.

“I don’t know what weight Conor is and there’s a lot of interrogation, a lot of question mark and I don’t know what is going to happen next. It’s up to UFC, they know what is best for the company, what everybody going to do.”

St-Pierre was then asked to confirm that he was not ruling out a fight against McGregor.

“I’m not saying no to nothing,” replied GSP. “I just don’t know. I’m not saying no to anything. I just look at the option and see what’s the best, you know?”
