St-Pierre taking first steps towards UFC return

UFC: Dos Anjos vs Lee – RDA desperate to get back to winning ways

Georges St-Pierre is testing the waters ahead of possible return to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Rumours have swirled around the French-Canadian's return to the octagon for months, and his striking coach Freddie Roach recently confirmed a possible comeback was in the works.

According to Roach, St-Pierre is going into a training camp before he will make a final decision.

"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," said Roach. 

"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."

St-Pierre took a break from the sport nearly two years ago following a controversial split decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167.

If he doesn't "feel it" after the training camp, Roach says St-Pierre won't return.

"I think it's really smart to do that to see where he's at in his mind," said Roach. "Does he really want to fight again or not?"
