After hinting for several weeks that he would like to make a comeback to the UFC following his ACL recovery, Georges St-Pierre backtracked and suggested that he was uncertain about his chances of returning to professional competition.
The former UFC welterweight kingpin spoke with members of the media on Wednesday afternoon in Berlin, where he quickly touched on the subject of his lack of motivation for his most recent fights, including Nick Diaz and Johny Hendricks.
"I've been doing this for a long time - since I was 19," St-Pierre told media members in Berlin. "I'm 33 now. When I fought [Carlos] Condit, I was very hungry. I was very happy to be there. I wanted to do it a lot. [Nick] Diaz, a little bit less, and the last training camp I had with [Johny] Hendricks, I didn't have the same motivation. It went down. I need to get back to that feeling of hunger."
St-Pierre does not see his ACL recovery as a hindrance to his chances at making a UFC comeback, but does believe he lacks the necessary motivation to make a successful return to the octagon.
"I need to get the motivation back. It's hard because it's always the same routine; the same thing. And I need to fix some things in my life to make it more efficient. Once everything can be done, maybe I'll come back.
"We'll see how it goes, but I can't say yes, I can't say no, because I just don't know right now."
