Georges St-Pierre

He’s back!!!

Former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre will return to the Octagon to fight Michael Bisping in 2017 according to UFC President Dana White, who broke the news on ESPN. While White announced that the fight would be taking place in 2017, he also revealed that that fight had not been set for an event at the present time.

The fight will mark the first time that “GSP” has competed inside the cage since November of 2013, when he scored a split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 to retain his welterweight championship.

Following his victory over “Bigg Rigg”, St-Pierre shocked the mixed martial arts world by announcing that he was walking away from the sport, thus vacating his UFC welterweight title.
