Georges St-Pierre’s UFC Return
If you were hoping to see Octagon legend Georges St-Pierre make his long-awaited return at UFC 300 , we’ve got some disappointing news for you. Originally rumored to compete against Nick Diaz at a UFC Fight Pass Invitational event this month, GSP was pulled from the submission grappling showcase due to a reported injury.
Enter former three-title UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen who suggested that ‘meaningful people’ were talking about re-booking the bout between St-Pierre and Diaz in the cage rather than on the mat. Sonnen questioned the decision to not have the fight at previous UFC events and expressed his concerns about the direction of the fights.
It wouldn’t be the first time the UFC pulled a legendary fighter out of retirement for a milestone event. UFC 200 saw the return of former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Perhaps there was some truth to what Sonnen was saying.
Recently, St-Pierre poured cold water over the rumors of his epic comeback, making it abundantly clear that it’s not going to happen. ‘I haven’t stepped foot in the UFC octagon in a very long time,’ GSP wrote on X. ‘And no, I am not coming back!’
