Georges St-Pierre had one of the most legendary runs in the UFC Octagon, winning the Welterweight title in 2006, immediately losing it in 2007, then reclaiming it later that year and defending it an astounding nine times in a row.

Then, seemingly at the peak of his fighting career, he retired at the age of 31.

In the years that have followed, rumors of a GSP comeback fight have not stopped for a second. And with UFC 200 on the horizon, they aren't about to slow down now.

Unfortunately for any fans hoping to see a solid confirmation on his return prospects, the former champ was decidedly vague during his recent appearance on The MMA Hour.

On the plus side, he gave us this gem of a quote:

"There is three things in life that excite me," he told Ariel Helwani. "There's a woman of course, dinosaurs and the violence of the Octagon."

For those confused about the "dinosaurs" piece of that equation, GSP has been fascinated by them for years. Actually, fascinated is probably underselling it, the man is straight-up obsessed.

In fact, he has his own dinosaur TV show on the History channel in Canada now, which premiered last week. It's called The Boneyard, and features GSP traveling around the world, investigating those prehistoric creatures.

That being said, he's still keeping an eye on the "violence of the Octagon" bit. He's apparently still training, and is currently letting his management discuss the possibility with the UFC.

"If I feel good, I'll give the thumbs up to my manager," St-Pierre said. "They've been talking with UFC, but now they're going to talk more seriously to see what's gonna happen."
