UFC Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre has revealed that he will be making a comeback to combat sports in a grappling match scheduled for December. The matchup will take place at a UFC Fight Pass Grappling Invitational, and St-Pierre wants the fans to be involved in choosing his opponent.
This will be St-Pierre’s first high-competition appearance since retiring from the UFC after his victory over Michael Bisping at UFC 217, where he earned the middleweight title and became a two-division champion.
During a recent interview on The MMA Hour, St-Pierre expressed his desire to face a well-known opponent in the grappling match. He mentioned the possibility of competing against a former opponent, such as one of the Diaz brothers, or someone active in the UFC welterweight division, like Usman or Covington.
St-Pierre believes that the fans should have a say in deciding his grappling opponent. He wants to face someone from a grappling background, as he believes it would provide a more entertaining match for the fans. St-Pierre emphasized that this match is more of a novelty than a competitive bout, but he still plans to be in the best shape and fully prepared for the challenge.
St-Pierre has a range of potential opponents to choose from. Nick Diaz, who lost to St-Pierre in a previous UFC welterweight title fight, recently returned to the UFC. Nate Diaz, Nick’s brother, is scheduled to face Jake Paul in a boxing match. Colby Covington is expected to fight Leon Edwards for the welterweight title, while Kamaru Usman is awaiting his next Octagon booking.
St-Pierre is looking for an opponent who will challenge him on the mats and attract a lot of attention to the competition. He wants to make this grappling match an exciting event for the fans to enjoy.
