After nearly three years away from the sport he once dominated, Georges St. Pierre could be returning to the Octagon.

During an appearance on “The MMA Hour“, “Rush” had this to say:

“There are two things that I’m very proud of: my welterweight title, and the record I hold for most wins in UFC history,” St-Pierre said. “Now I have Michael Bisping challenging me for (most wins in UFC history). … Yes, he’s bigger. But I have more skill, more athleticism and a higher fighting IQ. The world doesn’t turn around me, but if it’s a fight that fans and UFC want to make, they’ve got my number.”

“I always said I would come back for something big,” St-Pierre said. “Bisping is the man to beat right now. He beat Silva, he knocked out Rockhold. Rockhold beat (Ronaldo) ‘Jacare’ (Souza) and (Chris) Weidman.

” … I still feel that I’m at my best right now. The clock is running and I’m not getting any younger. I’m at the peak of my career, and if there’s a shot at another run, I better do it quick. It’s time to do it now.”

St. Pierre (23-2, 19-2 UFC) vacated the Welterweight belt in December 2013 after a controversial win over Johny Hendricks.
