Georges St-Pierre is returning to compete in the Octagon after taking a nearly four-year hiatus from the sport. GSP will go up to the middleweight division for the first time in his career to take on Michael Bisping at UFC 217 on November 4 for Bisping’s UFC middleweight title.

Given that “Rush” said he is returning to compete in MMA because he wanted fights that would excite him and get him motivated, it is hard to imagine a matchup against the trash-talking Irish UFC lightweight champion would not get him excited. St-Pierre spoke with Sports Illustrated recently and was asked if he has plans of fighting Conor McGregor in the future.

“Nah, I don’t look to set up a fight with Conor,” said St-Pierre. “I’m happy for Conor. He made a lot of money and deserved it. He raised the bar for everybody. He’s the most charismatic guy in MMA right now, the one who sells the most. I am happy for him. He deserve, he work hard for it.

“I’m focusing on Michael Bisping. We’re in different weight class. I’m focusing on Michael Bisping, one step at a time and you never know what’s going to happen in MMA, you know? I’m not afraid of nobody. I’m very confident in my skill and what I can bring on the table but at the same time I focus on one step at a time, what is ahead of me. I made the mistake in the past of overthinking stuff and when you do that, things doesn’t happen the way you want and waste energy, what I think.”
