Georges St.-Pierre UFC Return Confirmed By Dana White
Georges St-Pierre is making a comeback.
Georges St-Pierre (on top) lands some ground-and-pound on Carlos Condit during their Welterweight title bout at UFC 154 at the Bell Centre.
"I have no idea when he's going to fight right now", White said.
GSP fought lightweight champ B.J. Penn with his welterweight title on the line, but everyone questioned when 170-pound champ St-Pierre would fight 185-pound champ Silva back in 2010.
It was believed that the UFC's deal with manufacturer Reebok meant the 35-year-old's third party endorsements could not be honoured, severely impacting his earning potential. In 2015, the UFC introduced a policy enforced by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

St-Pierre said late a year ago he believed he was no longer under contract with UFC, claiming the promotion breached their deal by failing to meet a deadline to formally offer a fight. He answered that setback by defeating Serra in April 2008.
The UFC and St-Pierre came close to a new deal past year when the Canadian was negotiating for a fight with middleweight champion Michael Bisping, but the two sides couldn't come to terms. He says he can make the weight.
Right now there's word on who St-Pierre will ultimately fight when he returns but it's clear his next bout will be one of the biggest moments in recent UFC history. He and middleweight champion Michael Bisping have recently indicated an interest in fighting one another.
Now St-Pierre has reached an agreement that will see him return to the UFC as he looks to resume his career at some point during 2017. St-Pierre hinted last summer that he was preparing for a comeback and admitted that he got the conversation started in February 2016 with then-owner Lorenzo Fertitta. "We don't have anything booked and literally haven't talked to anybody about it". The two sides appeared to grow further apart in November when St-Pierre joined former Bellator MMA CEO Bjorn Rebney and a group of fellow fighters in publicly aligning themselves with the Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA). Hours later, the UFC responded and claimed that he remained under contract.
The UFC's other marquee pay-per-view star, Ronda Rousey, was decimated by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December and White says she has told him she is "ready to move on" from fighting.
