UFC: Rory MacDonald feels that Georges St-Pierre is far from done with MMA

Tristar standout and Bellator Welterweight Champion Rory MacDonald feels that Georges St-Pierre is far from done with MMA.

GSP last fought at UFC 217, and won the Middleweight Championship against Michael Bisping, admitting him into an elite list of UFC Champions who have held gold in two separate divisions.

However, he relinquished the belt shortly after due to an acute case of colitis, and confessed that he may be forced into retirement due to the diagnosis.

However, his teammate and former UFC Welterweight contender feels that GSP has plenty left in the tank to offer MMA.

Speaking to MMA Junkie, Rory MacDonald had this to say about the issue:

Even if he lost five in a row, still I don’t think it would taint what he’s done.

He’s done some of the most amazing stuff in the sport so far, so I’m really happy for him. If he feels he has more left in the tank, then I think absolutely he should get in there and do his thing. I don’t think any top fighter like that should feel like he left the game early.

Chael Sonnen said it well: A lot of champions leave face down and on the mat. That’s an admirable way to look at it. That’s usually when you know when you’re done, when your time if over in the sport. Clearly that isn’t the case for Georges right now.

He’s far from that stage.

However, the immediate UFC future of Georges St-Pierre seems a little murky, what with the 36-year old Canadian shooting down fights with Conor McGregor, Tyron Woodley, Nate Diaz and even Ben Askren.

Who do you think GSP should fight if he comes back to the UFC, and at which weight class?
