Georges St-Pierre has had quite the run inside the octagon. While the fighter recently vacated his latest title, the French-Canadian phenom has since come forward to reveal an interest in potentially making another run under the UFC banner.
Georges St-Pierre entered a lengthy hiatus from the sport of mixed martial arts after defending his UFC welterweight title from Johny Hendricks back in 2013. Having vacated the title upon his departure from the division, St-Pierre returned to the octagon in 2017.
This time around, St-Pierre earned the UFC middleweight title with a submission victory over Michael Bisping at UFC 217. However, St-Pierre’s middleweight title run was short lived.
Before making his first title defense as a middleweight, St-Pierre vacated the belt due to a debilitating case of colitis. Since then, it has been unclear what St-Pierre’s fighting future will become.
With that in mind, the MMA warrior appeared on the most recent edition of The MMA Hour to discuss his future in the sport of mixed martial arts. While Georges St-Pierre made a name for himself in the UFC’s 170 pound division and most recently shocked the world by earning the 185 pound title, St-Pierre is now potentially looking at making a run within the UFC’s 155 pound lightweight division.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani, St-Pierre revealed that he has lost a significant amount of weight. A photo of the fighter looking much smaller than usual has even been circulating around the internet as of late.
On that note, St-Pierre explained that he is not sure if he will return “at 170 or maybe even 155.” At any rate, the former two-division champion explained that he is now feeling much better than before.
“I think so, I think I will fight again.” St-Pierre stated. “Just, it depends on my health condition and everything. It’s too soon to say now. But, I feel much better. I feel much better now than I used to, after my fight.”
“I was very worried.” The fighter continued. “I always thoughts I would prioritize my health over my performance. And I was worried about my health.”
“If I come back it needs to be a fight that I have a lot to win. Not only a fight that I have a lot to lose and not much to win.”
