Georges St-Pierre wants an “undeniable offer” to return to the UFC – MMA Sports

former UFC Welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre talked on Michael Bisping’s podcast, trust me, Potential Super Fight with UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Since the retirement of “GSP”, the fight against Russia has always been speculated by fans.

Saint-Pierre describes his reaction to Habib’s retirement after his victory at UFC 254:

“That doesn’t mean I’ll accept it, everyone says,’Oh, when will that happen?'” Said Saint-Pierre. “I’ve never said I want to do it. It depends on the conditions. I can think seriously if the conditions such as weight class are correct, but I can’t go down to 155 from now on. At the age of 39, this is outside the window. “

“We are both about the same size. I’m not going to lie. I wake up in the morning and weigh about 183 pounds. I’m sure he’s about the same weight as me, perhaps not even bigger. So I think the weight class is like a novelty fight or a super fight. You need to have a rule that there is no weight class or the weight difference should not exceed 3%. I don’t know, but there is a way. You don’t have to lose weight and hurt yourself to do that. “

“If this battle were to happen in a fictional world, I think I would have to use all the tools,” continues Saint-Pierre. “I’m good at my job. I’m going to change the way I fight, not because I’m fighting Habib. My way of fighting, that’s the way I’ve been successful in all of my career. Many people are Habib. I think the mistake I make when fighting is to change the way they fight, as Habib is probably the best wrestler in the sport. (But) I confuse it. I’m good at takedowns to do. I’m not confused with him just because I’m fighting Habib. If I have a chance to beat him, I’ll try to beat him. I’ll beat him Believe in chance and be confident in yourself. Confidence is a very important part of the puzzle to succeed in MMA. When fighting the status of legendary fighters, many people do that. It’s part of my confidence and I believe their skills go out of the window. It’s one of the mistakes I wouldn’t make because I know Habib doesn’t do it against myself. is.”

“If the UFC wants me to come back, it’s not me who goes to the fight and asks.” Hey, can I come back? “They’re going to lower the shit from me! “Saint Pierre said. “That would be the stupidest thing I could do. If they make an offer to me, Dana knows where to contact me with an offer I can’t refuse.” (Transcribed by MMA Fighting)
