For some time, plenty of folks said Georges St-Pierre would never be back, including Dana White, but it looks like the former welterweight champ will be returning to the cage soon.
According to a report from MMA Fighting, multiple sources have relayed that St-Pierre and the UFC have agreed to terms and are close to finalizing a new, multi-fight contract. Neither the UFC or St-Pierre has made an official announcement, but last year the Canadian star announced his intention to fight again. More recently, White has confirmed that they’ve been in talks with St-Pierre.
So, if the contracts do get signed, the return of GSP could be huge for the UFC. St-Pierre, who has expressed an interest in facing middleweight champ, Michael Bisping, hasn’t fought since 2013.
