Mixed martial arts legend and UFC Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre may not be seen in action in the Octagon again, but if that fascinating event does occur, the Canadian has revealed the three choices for his comeback fight- Kamaru Usman, Khamzat Chimaev, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

During his spectacular MMA career with a 26–2 record, Georges St-Pierre became a phenom in the UFC and dominated the welterweight division throughout the majority of his career. A two-time Welterweight champion, GSP also clinched the Middleweight title in his final appearance in the cage before hanging up his gloves.

Even though it has been five years since his last fight, St-Pierre remains one of the most popular figures in combat sports, and fans have often talked about a possible comeback from the legend and is often in conversations about fantasy bouts against the current greats in the sport.

If I would have come back… I would want to be the best: Georges St-Pierre

Speaking to ESPN MMA, “Rush” said that while there’s no thought in his mind about a return, if there was a chance that he made it back to the cage, he would face Usman, Chimaev, or Khabib.

“If I had to come back and fight today, the three current fighters I would choose to fight, and I won’t because I don’t wanna come back, but If I would have come back… I would want to be the best,” said St-Pierre.

So, I’d would the best guys. Maybe Usman, Chimaev and… Khabib, if he would stil be there. But, unfortunately for me and the fans and everybody, it’s not gonna happen. Because I’m done and I don’t miss it at all,” the 41-year-old added. [H/T Sportskeeda]
