Hey Fight Fans, GSP Doesn’t Care If You’re Interested In His UFC Return

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre returns to action in next weekend’s UFC 217 main event.

He hasn’t fought in over four years and a lot has changed . . . Including the UFC fanbase.

As such, GSP might not be the most Googled fighter in the lead up to his return fight, he’s likely not even close.

The UFC has a new era of fighting stars, headed up by the reigning lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

But does GSP even care that the fans aren’t anxiously awaiting the return of the former king?

He tells MMAJunkie that he flat out doesn’t care.

Check it:

“I do not focus on that. I don’t even care. I don’t care. I would rather make zero dollars and win my fight than make $10 million and lose my fight. This is my word, and I swear it’s true. It’s always been like that, even when I was poor. I want to win, and I don’t care about (money or recognition). They’re going to know me after I win.”

“I want to win the title. I’m happy that I got everything lined up for a fight and it’s the best training I can do and lifestyle and everything. I’m happy to be here. I’m very scared and stressed and afraid to fail, but that feeling makes me better. I’m happy to be here.”

This year’s return trip to Madison Square Garden is proof the UFC can still deliver a stacked mega-card, with all the bells and whistles.

Set to headline next week’s MSG card, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre returns to the Octagon for the first time in over four years. He will face off against the UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping in the UFC 217 main event, on pay-per-view.

Also on the night’s fight card is a long-awaited title fight between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillasaw. And a strawweight title fight between Joanna Jedrzerjczyk And “Thug” Rose Namajunas.
