There has been much speculation of whether or not former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre will return to the UFC.

Recently, videos emerged of St. Pierre training with famed boxing coach Freddie Roach. Then, Rory MacDonald stated during a fan Q&A that GSP will be returning for super fights, which caused an uproar among fans. Following that, Freddie Roach stated that St. Pierre would be doing a test training camp, and then decide whether or not he will return.

UFC President Dana White has remained quiet throughout the entire process, until now.

White spoke to the LA Times:

“I highly doubt it’s going to happen because GSP’s been off for too long and has a ton of money. You don’t do a six-week camp to learn if you have the hunger. You either know it or not.”

“(UFC champion) Robbie Lawler knows it, he’s hungry, he trains like an animal. … You’re either hungry and an animal or you’re not.”

“It’d be great if he comes back, yes, I love Georges St-Pierre — amazing athlete — but comeback talk? I laugh at it. To be a world champion, you have to be hungry. … That’s not GSP. Not even close.”

What do you think PENN Nation? Do you think GSP will come back?
