Georges St-Pierre not wanting to sign a contract for a fight right now, doing what’s best for interests

Georges St-Pierre

One MMA’s all-time greats Georges St-Pierre was last seen making some history inside the Octagon at UFC 217 but he hasn’t been seen since.

At the incredible UFC 217 event, the former welterweight king St-Pierre added a second divisional title to his resume when he defeated Michael Bisping by third-round submission.

Just a month later, the Canadian would vacate his middleweight title after announcing that he was dealing with a case of ulcerative colitis.

St-Pierre recently spoke with Sportsnet and discussed how he really shouldn’t have gone up to 185-pounds despite the success he found on that night.

“For my fight with Michael Bisping, I was trying to put on weight but I did it the wrong way. I ate a crazy amount of food. I almost threw up sometimes…with the stress and everything it overused my digestive system.

Although I was obsessed with trying to gain weight, I should not have done it.”

Having not fought since that November 2017 title bout, St-Pierre has said that he isn’t retired again and does still have interest in fighting. Who against is the question.

St-Pierre recently said he was interested in fighting the winner of the upcoming lightweight title bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

However, GSP said that it was taken out of context and further explained.

“I didn’t say I was going to do it. People headlined me the wrong way, to sell articles. That’s the society we live in.

Dana White said I was done before my last fight with Michael Bisping. He does what he does best for his interests, and I do what’s best for mine.

I don’t want to sign a contract for a fight right now. I don’t want to say I’m going to commit to something. The minute I do it, the mental warfare starts.

I want to come back for a good fight. I want to come back for a fight that I can win, that I can gain something in terms of legacy. Not only money but in terms of legacy. Because I have a lot more to lose than to win.”

The former welterweight and middleweight champion hasn’t lost since 2007 when he was upset by Matt Serra.
