Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre took to social media and shared an interesting and informative training trick with fans. ‘GSP’ revealed an easy way to run in cold, wet conditions without facing the very real danger of slipping. He explained that a grocery bag placed over the feet before running is the most sure-fire way to avoid falling down.

Georges St-Pierre has managed to connect with fans in a huge way by continuing to share his training updates and overall lifestyle. Moreover, this also frequently leads to speculation that he may decide to make a comeback to MMA. However, that seems extremely unlikely looking at some of the things that have come out in the news.

Georges St-Pierre: All-time icon

The former welterweight champion was in talks to possibly come out of retirement to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, ‘The Eagle’ recently met up with UFC President Dana White and it seems as though that fight is not on the cards anymore. There’s no doubt that a GSP vs Khabib match-up would be a dream for all fight fans.

St-Pierre last fought all the way back at UFC 217 when he captured the middleweight belt from then-champion Michael Bisping. The bout took place in 2017 and ‘GSP’ has never set foot inside the UFC’s octagon since then. He has spoken about a comeback, but it seems to be something more actively discussed by his fans.

Another match-up fans almost got recently came in the form of a submission grappling bout against Tony Ferguson. Chael Sonnen recently revealed that they were close to putting together the aforementioned grappling spectacle, but it wasn’t to be. St-Pierre continues to train in a serious capacity and a comeback is still something that could take place.

From his last performance against Bisping, it was clear that GSP is still very much an elite competitor. His championship-level skills are still intact, and there’s virtually nothing stopping him from coming back to fight for gold. It seems as though the biggest hang-up comes in because there aren’t any match-ups that seem enticing. His legacy as arguably the GOAT in MMA is certainly something he holds dear and will look to preserve.
