“I don’t know, I’m the biggest I’ve ever been. Due to my rehab, I was not able to do martial arts training. I did a lot of strength conditioning exercises mixed with a lot of gymnastics. So, I gained a lot of muscle mass. I’m the heaviest I’ve been in my life, I’m like 200 pounds. I used to walk around at 188 pounds and now I am 200 pounds. Still, at 200 pounds (if I come back) it will be at welterweight. The guys in my division walk around over 200 pounds. Even before when I used to compete, I was very small. I have a very large frame that makes me look bigger because I have a long reach. But I’m not that heavy, I’m a small guy for the elite of my weight class, actually.”
In another clip from his interview with Chael Sonnen, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre admitted to some weight-gain in his off-time.
Will this help the former champ in a UFC return?
