Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre couldn’t escape the MMA media this week while cornering Francis Carmont in Brazil.
But some of the comments GSP made felt very off the wall.
The Brazilian MMA site Combate asked St-Pierre about a possible super-fight with Anderson Silva if he were to return to the UFC after “clearing” his head.
“There’s always a possibility,” he said. “Some fighters want to fight me because of my name, others for the money. I would fight Anderson Siva. I would even fight Brock Lesnar is it’s a fair fight for both.
“I’m not afraid of anyone, but I’m not stupid (laughs). Many people think that a fight shows who’s the toughest, but that’s not my case. I see things in a professional and intelligent way.”
Silva is rehabbing from a broken leg, while Lesnar appears set on remaining in pro wrestling until he finally retires – despite constant chatter about a return to the UFC.
St-Pierre also offered up his thoughts on the upcoming Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler title fight to crown a new champion, saying, “It could be either one. Hendricks has a certain advantage in wrestling, but either one can win by knockout.”
