St-Pierre stands as one of the most accomplished MMA fighters in history, holding the title of a two-time UFC welterweight champion and one-time middleweight champion. His legacy is further solidified by ranking third on the all-time title defense list and securing numerous other prestigious UFC records.

As his return date is set, the identity of his opponent remains uncertain. St-Pierre mentioned that there are still many variables to consider, such as weight and ruleset. However, he emphasizes that the most crucial aspect is finding an opponent and situation that will captivate the fans’ interest.

Upon the announcement of St-Pierre’s return, fans immediately expressed their desire for a showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov. In the past, both fighters were enthusiastic about facing each other in the octagon.

But the UFC ultimately declined to make the matchup, making it one of the most anticipated fights that never materialized.

Another name that has surfaced on the wishlists of fans is a rematch with Nick Diaz, with a prospect that seems more likely to materialize. The potential bout with Diaz holds significant intrigue for the MMA community, adding to the excitement surrounding St-Pierre’s eagerly awaited return.

“That could be an interesting one,” St-Pierre said. “He’s a very good grappler. In grappling, he’s got more experience than me. So I would have to make sure I come very well-prepared for that one if it’s Nick Diaz.”
