UFC welterweight G.O.A.T. Georges St-Pierre appeared recently on UFC Tonight, and discussed his potential return.

“I want to come back,” said St-Pierre, as transcribed by Tristen Critchfield for Sherdog. “They know the terms I want. Trust me, I’m very reasonable so it’s up to them. We tried. My agent tried to reach them and they’re hard to reach, but I guess they’re going to come back soon. Hopefully, we’ll see.”

“If you see it from my perspective, I’m making a lot of money now even though I’m not fighting, and my contract is old. My contract was made before the Reebok deal, and when we asked, basically, it’s now because if I go back and fight I cannot advertise my sponsors, so I’m losing money if I go back to fight on the old terms of my contract. So, it’s reasonable. I’m just waiting to so what’s going to happen.”

 

UFC president Dana White has expressed skepticism that GSP truly still wants to fight, but the fighter was adamant that he well and truly does.

“He doesn’t know anything about me,” said St-Pierre. “I’m a smart guy. I’m not the kind of guy you’re going to say that [about], and OK I’m going to sign right here, I’m going to fight for peanuts. No, I’m a smart person. It doesn’t work, these things on me. But I’m going to tell him something, to Dana, let me fight once and you’ll see in the first minute of the fight that what you just said is wrong.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
