A lot of people have been asking when and wondering if former UFC World Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre and the first lady of MMA, Gina Carano, will be coming back to fight anytime soon. The answer right now is NO. They both are filming the remake of Kickboxer with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dave Bautista. That means that in the first part of 2015 they will be filming and not thinking about fighting for a while.
Georges St. Pierre or GSP, for short, has taken the whole year away from MMA and is looking really good and happy. Some people are saying he is coming back while others say that he is retiring. The real truth of the matter is that we don’t have a clue as to his intentions at this time. To be honest with you, I don’t think he want’s to come back at all simply because he has done it all in MMA and has nothing left to prove. He is the greatest Welterweight of all time. He has bounced back from losing in great fashion but as a champion you only can do so much. I think GSP wants to enjoy life right now and do something new. I don’t know if that is that is where he is at right now but, we shall certainly find out sometime in the near future.
As for Gina Carano, she hasn’t fought in over 5 years since her loss to Cris “Cyborg” Justino back on August 15, 2009. Since then she has been busy with starring in movies like Blood & Bone, Haywire, Fast & Furious 6, et cetera. She is really getting good at acting but she still trains faithfully every day in Martial Arts and MMA. It is her call, of course, however, if Gina would come back I would be the first one to get real excited about it. I think she is one of the best 145lb female fighters in the world.
But, once again, we don’t know what the future holds for these fighters. When we do, I think we should be happy for them regardless of their choices. They have been key cornerstones in the sport.
