Georges St-Pierre positioning himself to become a three-division world champion

Updated: March 29, 2017

After a three-year layoff, Georges St-Pierre will step into the Octagon and face the current middleweight champion Michael Bisping at a not-yet-disclosed date later this year. The French-Canadian is greatly lauded as the greatest welterweight of all time, which is why, after years away from the sport, he was granted an immediate title shot.

St-Pierre has beaten other MMA world champions in Johny Hendricks, Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, Jake Shields, B.J. Penn, Matt Serra, and Matt Hughes. He holds the longest reign as the welterweight division’s champion and garnered the second-largest North American crowd in UFC/MMA history with his win over Shields at UFC 129.

However, with his return, the 35-year-old, wants to make history in other ways by possibly becoming a three-division world champion. In an interview with MMA Fighting, St-Pierre stated:

“I walk around at 185, 190 pounds. I’m going to fight at 185 right now. I even know some guys who fight at 155 (who) walk around in the offseason at a bigger weight than I am. I can possibly fight in those three (155, 170, 185) divisions, but I’m back for one reason. I want to make history.”
