Georges St-Pierre, former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion says he is done with the UFC, but he would be open to fighting for charity matches.
Recently, speaking to Haymakers’ Robin Black in a recent interview, Georges St-Pierre confirmed his days as a mixed martial artist for the UFC are over. According to GSP, he is no longer interested in having to prove that he is the best fighter in the world. However, he is still interested in competing again and mentioned potential charity matches in either boxing or grappling.
“I’m telling you, I’m not going to fight again to prove that I’m the strongest man in the world. This part of my life is over because I believe my best years are behind me. However, for a charity or for a fun competition as a novelty fight, I might compete again, whether that’s boxing, grappling, or whatever. That might be interesting because I’m a competitor inside of me and to do it for fun, something that would maybe not affect my legacy because it’s for a different reason, I could do it.” Georges St-Pierre said.
As previously known, UFC president Dana White blocked a boxing match against Oscar de la Hoya, but perhaps if Georges St-Pierre was purely fighting for charity, then White could potentially allow him out of his UFC contract.
