Long back erstwhile UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre had stated that won’t ever get back to professional fights till his employers come up with 3rd party drug tests. Naturally, when UFC announced new out-of-competition comprehensive policy on drug tests, GSP’s fans & MMA pundits all over started to speculate that whether it would lead to the return of the legendary MMA fighter.
But UFC Chief Dana White has reported that he has not spoken to Georges St-Pierre after the new test policy was announced. He is of the opinion that if the erstwhile MMA great is not willing to return to the ring, he won’t force him for it.
“I have not actually spoken to GSP”, admitted the UFC boss. “I have asked GSP whether he is willing to fight again or not & things such as that. I always say that if somebody is not willing to get to the bouts, pressurizing him for fight would be like last thing.”
As per White, has Georges St-Pierre wanted to get back to professional fights, he might have given him a call & planned something. But now that something like that has not taken place yet, the UFC chief is not really confident about GSP’s willingness to get back to professional UFC championships.
“Georges St-Pierre does not wish to fight any more”, White was pretty confident about his remark. “And what if he is planning for retirement? It is quite possible- he has been on top, has made huge money & he is also into movies now. In case, he feels like hanging his boots, I won’t be the guy who would put any pressure on him to come back to the ring.
“You must have this willingness to do it & apparently GSP doesn’t.”
