Video: Georges St-Pierre sets training camp for potential UFC return

Freddie Roach says UFC star Georges St-Pierre will start training camp that will determine whether he returns or retires.

Georges St-Pierre has been recently hinting at a UFC return, and it looks like the process for a potential comeback has begun. Freddie Roach recently had the former welterweight champ at the Wild Card Gym and he revealed GSP's plans for a return.

"So we came up with a process. He's going to train for a fight. He's going to have a six-week training camp," Roach told Fight Hub. "And at the end of the six weeks, if he feels like he's ready to fight, and he's hungry for it like he always has been, he's going to do it. He going to fight one more time."

"If he doesn't feel it, and he feels like it's just not there, he's going to let it go and he's going to retire. I think it's a good idea. I think it's really really smart to do that, to see where he's at in his mind," he said. "I really look forward to this training camp."

Apart from spending a few days in LA visiting Roach's gym, St-Pierre has also been training at the Renzo Gracie academy with top grapplers like Gary Tonon and others.

GSP is 34 years old, and last competed in 2013. He has had won an impressive 12 title bouts in his career, and his teammate, Rory MacDonald revealed that St-Pierre is likely to take a super-fight rather than gun for the title if he does make a return.
