Georges St-Pierre Reportedly Close to Finalizing New UFC Deal

Antonio JonesFeb 16, 2017

It seems as though the return of the welterweight legend Georges St-Pierre is now closer than ever but who exactly will he face off against when he does enter the octagon once again? Later that week, he also met with WME|IMG co-owner Ari Emanuel to discuss a new deal and a fight at UFC 206 in Toronto, however, the two sides could not come to terms.

Considering he never dropped the UFC welterweight title in the cage, it'd make sense for GSP to step in against the current champion. UFC Middleweight champion Michael Bisping has been urging to have a big-money fight with "Rush".

UFC president Dana White recently breathed new life into the possibility of St-Pierre's return, telling Canadian outlet TSN last week, "We've been talking to GSP for, God, over a year now".

GSP is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time.

In addition, on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour, Michael Bisping said one of St-Pierre's trainers told him "the deal is nearly done and he wants to fight me".

It's pretty possible that Diaz has spent his time off refining his game and if you know anything about himself and his brother, you'll know that they live and breathe fighting.

Conor McGregor, the promotion's biggest star, is chasing a boxing match with retired great Floyd Mayweather and risks trouble with his UFC contract, that has him pegged for four more fights.

Nevertheless, in June, St-Pierre announced that he was finally ready to resume his career. They did not support me because of the testing issues for the doping, they did not support me for the anti-doping.

Regarded as the best 170-pound fighter in MMA history, there is speculation St-Pierre has his eyes set on challenging for the middleweight title. GSP too has shown some interest in fighting the Mancunian. We also know that he's now pushing for a potentially earth-shattering matchup with boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather and is yet to defend his belt.

At long last, Georges St-Pierre appears headed back to the UFC. He surely still has some good fighting years left in him.
