  • “Rush” has yet to reveal if he plans to return to fighting

UFC legend Georges St-Pierre is making headlines in the sport as he announced that he received medical clearance to make a combat sports return.

GSP is back

St-Pierre broke the positive news on social media as he revealed that his doctor has already given him the “green light” to participate in combat sports.

“Finally today I got the green light from the Doc to start back to go live slowly in Combat Sport,” the former UFC welterweight champion wrote on X.

It is what it is but it’s not what people think

It can be recalled that GSP suffered a shoulder injury several months ago which prevented him from doing intense training. St-Pierre’s return may have generated excitement and anticipation among combat sports fans worldwide but there is no indication that “Rush” is indeed making MMA return.

The only thing certain at the moment is that St-Pierre is looking, feeling and officially healthy. Prior to this, GSP also revealed why he decided to retire from MMA.

St-Pierre’s last MMA fight was in 2017 at UFC 217, where he defeated Michael Bisping and claimed the UFC middleweight title. Despite plans for a grappling match against Nick Diaz last year, GSP incurred the said shoulder injury and the fight was also eventually canceled.

Throughout his time as UFC champion, St-Pierre defended his welterweight title nine times, setting a record for the most title defenses in the division. He retired with a pro MMA record of 26-2 and has insisted in more than one occasion that he has no plans of competing again.
