Georges St-Pierre: “Fire” To Compete Coming Back, But No Plans Right Now

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre admits that the fire to compete inside the Octagon is coming back.

But he isn’t about ready to declare himself back in the welterweight division.

St-Pierre appeared on a recent edition of “UFC Tonight” to discuss his plans, and the French-Canadian remained uncommitted to competing again for the promotion.

“It’s not interesting for me right now,” he said. “I’m not sure. I just really don’t know. That’s why I didn’t say if I’m retired yet. I just don’t know.”

The 33-year-old has returned to working out and training at Tristar Gym following knee surgery and filming movie roles, but that is just the start of a long process if he is to fight again.

St-Pierre’s last appearance inside the Octagon came in 2013 when he defended his title with a split decision victory over Johny Hendricks. He vacated the belt shortly after that fight, which was his ninth successful title defense.

“I want to sit back, relax and watch the show,” he said. “More and more, I have more fun in training and the fire is coming back. But it should be a rational decision as well.”
