Report: Manager Repeats That Georges St-Pierre Has No Plans For Comeback
By FCF Staff
January has come to a close, and despite all the speculation that Georges St-Pierre might return to the UFC sometime in 2015, the star’s manager says no comeback is in the works.
While there’s always been talk as to whether St-Pierre would fight again, following the announcement of his hiatus in 2013, the latest buzz is regarding whether the UFC might look at booking GSP vs. Anderson Silva. The latter is coming off a unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz on Saturday, and considering Silva is about to turn 40, many believe the time is right for the super fight.
Ed Soares, the manager for Silva, recently told “The MMA Hour” that he’s interested in seeing his client face GSP. The latter’s manager, Rodolphe Beaulieu, however, told MMA Fighting.com that St-Pierre is “really enjoying his life right now” and has no plans for a comeback.
The former welterweight champ hasn’t fought now since November, 2013, when he earned a split decision win over Johny Hendricks.
Although St-Pierre hasn’t been fighting, the 33 year-old, Canadian incurred another ACL injury last spring and only returned to training recently.
