Georges St-Pierre 1-on-1: On walking away, comeback plans, legacy

With the shake of his hand, I can feel the tendons in my right forearm holding on for dear life. And without exchanging any words, I knew that Georges St-Pierre was still in supreme fighting condition, since vacating his belt in 2013.

The setting for this interview with the three-time, former Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight champion was a launch event for the fighting video game Nintendo Arms, a game that has become a secret obsession of St-Pierre’s during his time away from The Octagon.

Despite being challenged by others for most of his fighting career, St-Pierre now finds himself in the unfamiliar role of challenger himself as he seeks a fight with Michael Bisping in his return to competitive fighting. St-Pierre has issued a challenge to Bisping, and continues to text Dana White about the possibility.
