It’s been nearly 3 years since Georges St-Pierre set foot in the Octagon. In that time, rumors have continued to surface regarding the former welterweight kingpin’s potential return to the Octagon.
The rumors reached an all-time high in recent months when St-Pierre reportedly reached out for a middleweight title fight with Michael Bisping. In addition, newly crowned welterweight champion Tyron Woodley called out a fight with St-Pierre.
On the heels of that, GSP revealed to BloodyElbow that he has started the process to return to the Octagon:
My agent is negotiating with the UFC, they had an offer, we made a counteroffer, you know that’s how business goes. And then we heard a day after that UFC sold for $4 billion dollars. So we waited for a few days, to see what was going on, because even some of the employees were afraid of losing their job – even some of the high ranking people in the UFC were afraid. We wanted to let the management to take care of their own company first, and then see what happens.
Now we’re talking again and I’m starting the USADA process to be tested, I’m starting it Aug 10. in Las Vegas. Because to be eligible to fight you need to be tested.
