Although there’s been an astronomical amount of speculation about former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre’s return to MMA that has largely gone nowhere over the past few years, the fighting world got what could possibly be its most concrete and promising news about that subject today.
When a report surfaced revealing that GSP was rumored to be returning to the Octagon at December 10’s UFC 206 pay-per-view (PPV) from Toronto, the discussion about just whom the all-time legend should face was fired back up again in a big way.
After all, the longtime former champ has been linked to a plethora of high-profile bouts in recent months, and against everyone from middleweight champion Michael Bisping to his long-rumored super fight with former middleweight champ Anderson Silva. Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley and former heated rival Nick Diaz also threw their names into the mix. To top it all off, there’s always the big money (and it would be absolutely massive) fight with featherweight champ Conor McGregor.
St. Pierre’s recent return to the USADA drug testing pool only served to add gas to the fire of these rumors, and indeed it looks like a GSP comeback is finally becoming close to a reality. No matter whom he fights, it’s going to be a spectacle that no serious MMA will obviously want to miss.
Who do you think St. Pierre should face in his return?
