Georges St-Pierre says he's feeling the hunger to compete again.

Nearly two years have passed since Georges St-Pierre decided to vacate his UFC title and step away from active MMA competition. Two years where fans and media alike speculated if and when he will return to the cage. And two years full of blurry statements and indecision by the the former pound-for-pound ruler.

"I'm not sure, I don't know right now if I wanna come back or not. I'm not sure when, if I do." GSP repeated that mantra time and time again. Now, finally, the 34-year old hinted at a UFC comeback.

"I'm starting to get the feeling, more and more, to come back," St-Pierre told Montreal's Reseau de sports (HT: MMA Fighting). "I watch the fights to see what's going on in my division, and I'm staying in shape. It's like a knife that I have to keep sharp just in case I ever decide to jump back in the mix. It's most likely not going to happen in 2015, but I don't know, yet."

St-Pierre vacated his belt and went on a hiatus since December 2013, but always left the door open for a UFC return. A comeback in 2015 would indeed be more than unlikely, with little more than two months left and two blockbuster events coming up in UFC 193 and UFC 194.
