It's been a long time rumor that former UFC Champion Georges St-Pierre could make a grand return to the octagon. Rumors that were further fueled by his recent appearance at UFC 196 and by UFC President, Dana White, who recently told media:

"...have we been talking to Georges? Yes, we have -- but who knows? I honestly, right here, right now, don't know if Georges still wants to fight."

GSP's teammate, Rory MacDonald, also doesn't know if the long-time running UFC welterweight champ will return, but feels that he could, "for the right amount of money." He recently had this to say on The MMA Hour:

"I really don't know (if he's coming back). He's so secretive! It's hard to get a read on it, but he's training and he's doing good. I don't know. I think it really comes down to numbers. I think he could come back, if the right amount of money is on the table, if the right fight is there for him."

MacDonald made sure that everyone understood, it was only his guess and that he doesn't know for sure if GSP will return.

"That's my guess. But I try not to ask Georges about those stuff, because that's pretty much what everyone wants to ask him."

But what would be considered the "right fight" to pull St-Pierre back into the ring. Recently, Donald Cerrone took to Twitter to throw his hat in the ring as a possible match and GSP's coach, Firas Zahabi, also used the social media platform to drop another potential matchup: Nate Diaz.

Only time will tell if a matchup against Diaz would be a big enough draw to get St-Pierre back in the octagon. Until then, MacDonald thinks it would be a great matchup:

"That would be fun, I think it would be good to see him fight Nate or something like that, or Conor (McGregor). It'd be cool."

Fun or not, everything is up to GSP and MacDonald admits, he'll find out just like everyone else:

"When it happens, it will happen. I will just see it on the news or something. He will do what he wants to do, and he will be fine."
