One of MMA’s all-time greats Georges St-Pierre was last seen making some history inside the Octagon at UFC 217 when he beat Michael Bisping. He hasn’t stepped inside the cage since.

When GSP retired there also wasn’t a fight out there that was appealing enough for him to stay in the UFC. Although GSP has said numerous times before that he wanted to fight Khabib and even the Russian had expressed interest in fighting Georges, the fight never went through and UFC was never interested in making that fight.

I am retired,” St-Pierre said in a recent interview with DAZN’s Robin Black.“I retired because I didn’t want to go back and do the same thing over and over again. Taking a fight takes a lot out of me because I’m very proud so when I perform I have to do it the best I can and the result matters very much for me. So it takes a lot of stress on me. I didn’t want to take another training camp of two-three months – maybe six months with the whole building up with the promotion and everything – out of my life to fight another guy that I don’t have nothing to gain in terms of legacy. If I fight someone and I take six months of my life to focus on it . . . I would need that to be worth it to me. Not only money-wise but legacy wise and satisfaction wise. That’s why I wanted to fight Khabib because I could have lost big but at least I could have win big.

If I ever come back, it’s not impossible but right now I don’t see nothing. The UFC refuse a fight with Khabib and I and there’s nothing that really excites me.” (H/T – BloodyElbow.com)

Khabib Nurmagomedov is all set to defend his title against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi this weekend.
