TORONTO — It’s 1,300 days and counting since Georges St. Pierre last fought. But the former UFC welterweight champion says he feels better than ever on the comeback trail. “I’m in the best shape of my life,” the 36-year-old Montreal MMA star said in an interview Thursday. There is a chink in the GSP armour, however. “Let’s say you go out with your friend and have a few drinks, it takes more time to recuperate,” he admitted. “But all the rest — you’re wiser, smarter, more experienced, more powerful, stronger.” St. Pierre, whose last fight was at UFC 167 on Nov. 16, 2013, ended his hiatus from the sport when he signed a new contract in February. The UFC announced GSP would move up a weight class to face middleweight champion Michael Bisping later this year. St. Pierre and the UFC have since clashed over when the fight should take place. UFC president Dana White wants it sooner than later. GSP says he can’t fight until November because of an eye injury. St. Pierre (25-2-0) says he spoke to White this week to press his case to battle Bisping.

No one who's been paying attention all these years should be the least bit surprised that, even in semi-retirement, it was Georges St-Pierre who showed us how it should be done.The now-former UFC welterweight champion announced Friday that he's vacating the title, taking a break from MMA, and going in search of a "normal" life. Not quite as decisive or final as some of the other exits we've seen, but that's part of what's so great about it.

“I’ve never fought anybody like him. But he’s never fought anybody like me,” St. Pierre told The Canadian Press. “So we’re both unique. We’re going to clash and see who’s the best man.”

"Georges has been a great champion and he's been great for the company and if he wants another fight, we'll make it for him," White said Wednesday at a news conference attended by a throng of media and about 100 fans. "We knew Nick wanted the fight, so it worked out."
