Video: Ex-UFC champ Georges St-Pierre hits mitts inside the gym, looks a wee bit rusty

Could there be another comeback tour in the works?

Okay, so we may be getting ahead of ourselves, but it's still interesting to see former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre back in the gym (slowly) hitting the mitts.

"Rush" has done a fairly good job of staying out of the mixed martial arts (MMA) spotlight after walking away from the sport (because of this) just a few years back.

But MMA's loss is Hollywood's gain.

Since then, every move made or comment said by the former champ -- especially those inferring a potential return to action -- has given fight fans hope, hope that "Rush" will once again step foot inside the Octagon.

Others, like UFC President Dana White, aren't so optimistic.

And while it's not the super secret Fight Club-inspired training methods Freddie Roach had in mind before deciding on a comeback to combat sports, it's a start.
