All-time great Georges St-Pierre is no longer under contract with the UFC, he is now a free agent. The Canadian athlete recently discussed his intentions and what this means in an interview with MMA Junkie.

On being a free agent, ‘Rush,’ at the Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva weigh-ins explained:

“I’m free, I can do whatever I want. My days of trying to prove I’m the strongest man in the world are gone. My heart is not there anymore to do this. I just enjoy being here as a promoter. I’m healthy, which is the most important. Wealthy. I don’t need to do it, I do it because I love it.”

While it may seem that the 41-year-old athlete is not intending to do any combat sports, although he did leave the door open. He continued:

“I could something. But it needs to be something well organized. It needs to be something where the risk of injuries is to the minimum. Not something that is too crazy. Because my days of competing are over. So if I do it, I will do it well. I will train my ass off … But, never say never. But it needs to be at the right timing.”
