UFC: Georges St-Pierre to return to octagon

Share

MICHAEL BISPING says he will "probably" face Yoel Romero next, while hinting a potential clash with Georges St-Pierre could not be far away either.

Earlier in the week, MMAFighting journalist Ariel Helwani reported that former long-reigning UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre had agreed on the terms of a new deal with the world's premier MMA promotion.

While the date of St. Pierres return isnt set, the former welterweight champion wont be short on options when he steps back into the octagon.

The Los Angeles Times was the first to report St-Pierre's signing. Skeptics, including both St-Pierre and White, viewed St-Pierre's issues with the UFC's anti-doping policy, as well as its Reebok uniform deal, among other differences, as massive stumbling blocks preventing his return. St-Pierre said talks about his return broke down when the new WME-IMG ownership group became involved following the purchase of UFC in the summer for approximately $4 billion. He answered that setback by defeating Serra in April 2008. Georges St-Pierre says nothing official yet.

While St-Pierre's return fight has yet to be finalized, the current plan is for him to compete later this year.

St-Pierre last fought Jonny Hendricks at UFC 167 and he won the fight via a controversial split decision.

National Guard Considered For Trump's Immigration Enforcement
An 11-page document, authorised under the name of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, was leaked to the Associated Press . He said the use of National Guard members for this reason would be "an inappropriate use of their resources".

White stated on the news, "He's back. We don't have anything booked and literally haven't talked to anybody about it".

The Irishman has also been flirting with a foray into boxing to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr and has suggested he might pursue that fight whether the UFC get on board or not. He later aligned himself with the fledgling MMA Athletes Association, promising to fight for better treatment of UFC fighters.

White admitted to the LA Times that it took two friends of St-Pierre to play a key role in brokering the deal in recent days.
