Earlier this week,” Georges st pierre was talking why a comeback struggle Anderson Silva didn’t make sense for him personally . Now it appears to be a comeback in rsquo & general isn; t One thing he & rsquo; s considering.
Discussing with the La Sueur podcast, St-Pierre disclosed that though he is fully recovered by medical problems that caused him to vacate his eponymous name, the previous winner isn’t positive whether he will ever come back into fighting with.
“I’m feeling great physically, in shape just like no time before,&rdquo. I don’t must take my drugs …
“I really could [comeback ] but to tell the facts s less tempting for me and less. I did not think I’d say that one evening: I’m becoming old. I don’t want to struggle with a new guy that hasn’t left it on that isn, the heritage side ’t a name. I’d have nothing to triumph. Every time we enter the octagon, it’SA risk. You might have a bad day… We are always a blunder off from the KO or some severe injury., so it’s a possibility and the risk must be well worth it.
“I’m not interested in destroying the guy, fighting with a rising star, and coming back. It give me nothing and that I destroy a star’s fantasy. We all are losing afterward, we’re only bringing in money. Should I keep coming back, then it’s maybe not for money but for heritage. ”
The problem is finding a competition who introduces benefit to justify finding its way back, and that is clearly a narrow window. Young contenders would not have the name recognition and fighters using this name recognition have been largely past their primes. There’s 1 name that’s been floated and following his recent operation, st pierre admits it would have the desired effect, in case the UFC would allow it to happen.
“Khabib explained he would like to fight before the McGregor struggle,&rdquo. “It did not interest me. He was not famous, he didn’t conquer some one. Now that he overcome McGregor, it’so better.
&ldquo [However ] I’m not that the guy who calls people out. It’therefore not my personality. I know people are speaking about this struggle; yet, I know the UFC wouldn’t be interested in that struggle in 155 [pounds]. They understand that I’m at the end of my career. I have not conflicts. I shall come back for maybe 1, 2. Maybe zero. I won’t come back and I’m fine. ”
When he does retire, st pierre &rsquo heritage is as great as any in this game. St-Pierre is widely regarded as one of, or even the greatest of all-time Certainly one of a couple of men to win titles in various weight classes from the UFC. With a 26-2 listing in a few of the greatest divisions in the game, it’therefore hard to claim that the point. In 37 years old, still yet another comeback risks tarnishing that sterling resume, and at the momentit doesn’t appear to be GSP believes it’s worth it, even if sometimes he wishes to anyway.
“When I set goals I said that I didn’t want to get pushed out of this game,&rdquo. “I wanted to retire on my terms and ontop. I’d have realized my mission if I do this now.
&ldquo the competition in my mind is still here, so when I see that the guys getting ready for a struggle after a workout, with me feeling good and strong, it makes me want to come back. That&rsquo therefore the toughest for me. I would like to return there. I feel fit, at my top. When I was 25, I believe much better than. But when I’m together with most importantly and my loved ones, that’s tempting. When I wake up in the early morning I&rsquo Do you really want to return in that particular circus?

You were fighting opponents? Wonderful joke. Decision against pastprime Rashad was split.
If UFC’d prefer to have you in the roster after your struggle, I had serious harm, so you’d know it. You’d not get back into UFC thanks if you ask me personally.
That’s quite indifferent to a handful of your gym mates Antonio Carlos jnr and Steve Montgomery, in case you aren’t ready to see the bullshit posts on Instagram ♂️, come down for a trip, as you say I’m older and easy pickings!
It is my hope that this thing gets explained so on.
I don’t believe is jotko’s occupation to say when u belong to the roster or not and I’d be completely down to struggle un equally after I Will
