Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre recently appeared on the “You’re Welcome! With Chael Sonnen” podcast. During the interview, he said that if he did ever return to the octagon then he would still be on top of the Welterweight division.
“I believe if I ever want to come back and fight I could be the best in mixed martial arts, if I find the fun and I have the feel for it again,” St-Pierre said. “If I train hard and I have the pleasure to do it, I believe I can still be on top.”
“I like to compete to the highest level,” he said. “If I do something, I do it because I want to be the best at it. I do not believe with my age and the time that I have left in my prime I could be the best in the grappling department.”
GSP retired following a close fight with Johny Hendricks at UFC 167. That event drew 14,856 fans in attendance that made $5,759,350 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas.
The event had 630,000 pay-per-view buys.
