Georges St-Pierre's anticipated retirement has all chiming in, including the current UFC roll over.
Tyron Woodley sang St. Pierre & # 39; s praise Wednesday and even requested a future meeting between the two champions – and it doesn't have to be octagonal.
"Just had a vision to call him after my next match @arielhelwani. Congratulations on one of the biggest!" Wrote Woodley in response to a post on the Instagram page of ESPN's Ariel Helwani. "@Georgesstpierre as we will never cross paths in the octagon would love to do it in the gym! Would be honored. You have had the best of anyone struggling to grace the buried canvas!"
Woodley repeatedly tried to do a fight with St Pierre, when he once sent a text exchange with the former two-part master after catching the welter weight title in 201

Before St-Pierre announced a comeback at the end of 2017, Woodley himself secured an oral green light from UFC President Dana White. But after a weak title defense against Demian Maia at UFC 214, White chose the middle champion Michael Bisping as St-Pierre's comeback opponent.
When St Pierre's future was questioned by a serious medical diagnosis, Woodley passed on to other opponents. But he never lost his desire to test himself against the winning masters of the 170-pound division's history.
Currently, Woodley could use a good gym session as he prepares to defend his title against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, which takes place on March 2 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
St-Pierre may even need one if he manages to accept a future fight with the UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov, who urged St Pierre to rethink retirement.
