Breaking: Georges St-Pierre & UFC Agree To Terms On New Multi-Fight Deal

The wait is nearly over.

Former UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre’s Octagon return is nearly complete according to a report from MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. Multiple sources close to the situation confirmed that ‘GSP’ and the UFC have agreed to terms for a contract that will bring back the Canadian phenom for a multi-fight deal.

The report said the deal is not yet finally, and the plan is to bring St-Pierre back around the third quarter of 2017.

St-Pierre’s last Octagon outing saw him take home a controversial split decision win over Johny Hendricks in the main event of UFC 167 back in 2013, marking his ninth consecutive title defense before subsequently announcing his retirement. Now ‘Rush’ has the competitive itch to return and test himself against the new breed of mixed martial artists (MMA) that have emerged since his departure, and it appears we’ll see just that before year’s end.

Currently St-Pierre’s old stomping grounds at 170 pounds is run by Tyron Woodley, who won the title back at UFC 201 with a hellacious knockout of Robbie Lawler. Woodley has expressed a great deal of interest in possibly fighting St-Pierre upon his return and the Canadian shares the same sentiments as well.

Another possibility is a superfight for the 185-pound title against Michael Bisping, who recently said on The MMA Hour that one of St-Pierre’s coaches told him “the deal is almost done and he wants to fight me.”

Who would you like to see ‘GSP’ fight once he finally gets back into the Octagon?

  • Dave WC

    McNugget. Obviously Conor will never defend a belt, so may as well fight GSP.

  • RayFromDa Bay

    Ol G.round S.poon P.ound is back & possibly boring as ever!

    • buddy

      if you think GSP the number 1 PfP best fighter is boring then you are just another dumb ass part time fan

      • RayFromDa Bay

        I been saying the same thing about GSP on Lowkick back when your pops fluffed penis to bail his husband outa jail.

        • Shock Wave

          So, it not only took you 5 hours to respond, confirming you are slow, if you actually think GSP is a “boring” fighter,
          Here’s a short list of ACTUAL boring fighters.
          1. Ben Askren
          2. Jake Shieldzzzzzzz
          3. Jon Fitch

          But you should know that already, Ray, given your age…

          • RayFromDa Bay

            Didn’t know you could get WiFi under an off ramp but good for you homie…but anyways GSP was know to grind & spoon his way to a victory all the time.

          • Shock Wave

            Oh Ray, one can clearly see how your gene pool needs chlorine.

            You must also think Tyron Woodley really is an underrated champion, and the chicken came before the egg.

          • buddy

            hey low kick stop censoring people you pukes

          • MegaDoomer

            “researchers say the chicken must have come first as the formation of eggs is only possible thanks to a protein found exclusively in the chicken’s ovaries.”

  • Juan Diablo

    Hahahaha glad that this happened after Woodley already signed to fight Thompson lol He’s gonna lose his belt to Thompson and now he missed the GSP “money fight” he wanted so badly

    • Murderous1

      Woodley will not lose for a while GSP will have to fight him

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    This could either be bang or bust
    It all depends if Georges got his groove back
    Thats was why he left

    He has all the skills, but does he want to do it

  • kevin

    GSP would beat Bisping and most likely anyone in 170lbs. Def think he has what it takes to pickup where he left off

  • Shrewd Dude

    Let him fight Фьодор Емеляненко

    • Gentleman Plebs

      hahahaha

  • Shock Wave

    GSP vs … wait for it… David Branch!
    Tune up fight, and will get attention!

    Book it, Dana!!

  • aFriendlyAgenda

    That would be cool for Georges to come back

    Canadiens are fhags,
    but they’re nice guys

    I can root for a nice guy
