Rory MacDonald spoke with MMAjunkie about Georges St-Pierre potentially returning to fight for the UFC. Some highlights are below:

On wanting to see GSP return: “Even if he lost five in a row, still I don’t think it would taint what he’s done. He’s done some of the most amazing stuff in the sport so far, so I’m really happy for him. If he feels he has more left in the tank, then I think absolutely he should get in there and do his thing. I don’t think any top fighter like that should feel like he left the game early. Chael Sonnen said it well: A lot of champions leave face down and on the mat. That’s an admirable way to look at it. That’s usually when you know when you’re done, when your time if over in the sport. Clearly that isn’t the case for Georges right now. He’s far from that stage.”

On GSP’s win over Michael Bisping: “I’ve always said he’s done some amazing things in the sport. I thought he did great in his comeback. The performance was one of his best. He finishes Michael Bisping. I think he did a great job. I’m really happy for him.”
