UFC legend Georges St-Pierre has hinted at a comeback to the octagon for a huge fight
St-Pierre has been linked with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for next year
Amid speculation of a potential bout with the lightweight champions, St-Pierre has shockingly said he would be willing to make a comeback to fight the Russian.
He told RDS: ‘I’m still in good shape, not because I have a fight coming up, but because I like to stay that way.
‘Having said that, I’m not in fighting form. If I had a fight, I’d have to go to training camp.
‘I just got into the Hall of Fame, I’m retired and I’m fine.
‘If the UFC has something to ask of me, an offer to make that I couldn’t refuse, they just call me, they know where to find me.’
GSP retired back in 2019 after vacating the middleweight belt and hasn’t fought since 2017
UFC president Dana White is happy to give the green light to the potential huge money bout
Nurmagomedov revealed plans to defend his title against Gaethje in October before fighting St-Pierre in April.
GSP was hoping to fight Khabib last year, but UFC president Dana White was unsure whether to give the a shot at the lightweight title after vacating the middleweight crown.
However, White has since changed his tune and said if Khabib wants the fight then he will give it the green light. He told ESPN: ‘It’s the last fight of his career, the guy’s been great.
‘He’s been great to the company, he’s been great for the sport.
‘And, I like Khabib Nurmagomedov a lot and I would do anything Khabib wanted to do.’
