There’s been an ever-increasing buzz so far this year that welterweight superstar Georges St. Pierre could be on the verge of a comeback in 2016.
The rumor mill went into overdrive when St. Pierre attended UFC 196 last month to watch Conor McGregor fight Nate Diaz, while those close to the 34-year-old, such as long-time coach Firas Zahabi and training partner Rory MacDonald, have occasionally dropped hints that he is targeting a return.
The latest fuel to the fire comes from the man himself, with St. Pierre telling RDS.ca that he has been speaking to the UFC about a possible return, though they are still in negotiations and nothing has been decided yet.
Is it really such a good idea for the former welterweight kingpin to step back into the Octagon though?
In this article we’ll argue that there are five major reasons why this legendary fighter should cast aside any thought of returning, and instead should make his retirement official and hang up his gloves for good.
