Wednesday evening, former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre appeared on ‘UFC Tonight’ to discuss the rumors regarding his potential return to the Octagon.
St-Pierre revealed that he is more than willing to return to the Octagon, however the UFC has his terms, and the pair has yet to reach a deal. In addition, St-Pierre revealed that he’s interested in fighting Nick Diaz, Tyron Woodley, and Demian Maia.
The former champ also addressed the recent comments made by UFC President Dana White, in which he stated that St-Pierre no longer has the desire to be the best in the world.
GSP responded by saying:
“He doesn’t know anything about me,” St-Pierre said about White. “I’m a smart guy. I’m not the kind of guy you’re going to say that (about) and OK I’m going to sign, I’m going to fight for peanuts! No, I’m a smart person, it doesn’t work on me these things. I’m going to tell him something to Dana, let me fight once and you’ll see in the first minute of the fight that what you just said is wrong.”
“Let me fight Tyron Woodley then, we’ll see if I want to be world champion again,” St-Pierre said. “I understand what he means. I’m not angry at Dana. He does what he does for the best of his interest. I do what I do for the best of my interest. One day when all that’s over, we’ll probably be friends like most of the guys I fought.
“But now, it’s like a game. He’s doing his game, I’m doing mine. We work for the best of our interests. Let me fight once and you’ll see. You’ll see after the first minute, he’ll be like ‘oh yeah, he’s serious’.”
