Georges St Pierre recently took time out of his busy schedule to chat with John Morgan from The MMA Underground. During the interview, ‘Rush’ revealed that he has launched a clothing line with the BlueChip team. When asked why he wanted to get into a product line of clothes, GSP replied “I don’t compete anymore, so you want to leave something for the fans. It’s part of your legacy, you want to leave something the fans can remember you for, and it’s a nice piece of art.”
The UFC Hall of Famer also touched on the artwork used, saying “It showcases different emotions and values that I strongly carry with me throughout my career, and it’s a collection that’s really made for the fans, a hundred percent.”
As for why it made sense to join the BlueChip team, St. Pierre adds “It makes sense, because they are very good in this field, you know what I mean? They’re very renowned, a lot of other great athletes have partnered up with them.” The French Canadian also revealed he’s working with Eric Williams on the collection saying “Because he’s a friend of mine, he makes me very comfortable when he takes the pictures, so it makes things more authentic.”
A Possible Return to Competition?
Although a UFC return is highly unlikely at this point, Georges isn’t ruling out the possibility of a grappling match. “I don’t say no,” he replied when asked. “My days of serious competition are over now, but I’m not saying I will never compete again for fun. I’ll do it maybe for the kick of it.”
The last time we witnessed GSP in any kind of action was back at UFC 217, when he choked Michael Bisping out to claim the middleweight title. The victory over Bisping in 2017 extended St. Pierre’s record to 26-2, and his win streak to 13. Unfortunately for the fans, he once again walked away from the sport, leaving us all craving more from the legend, but appreciating his accomplishments. Although it’s been nearly five years, ‘Rush’ is still actively training with some of the world’s best practitioners. At 41 years old, GSP believes he’s better than he was before, and is adamant that he’s still improving.
