The chatter of former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre coming back to compete in the UFC seem like they started as soon as he made the decision to step away from fighting back in 2013.

The hint of a comeback intensified on Thursday after a Quebec reporter tweeted that St-Pierre would be announcing his comeback in the coming days. However, the tweet that chirped a resounding message was muffled soon after.

MMA Fighting reported on Thursday that they contacted “Rush” as well as his manager to get confirmation. St-Pierre denied any comeback decision and said, “I can tell you with certainty that their sources are not reliable,” via text message.

MMA Fighting also got a hold of St-Pierre’s manager Rodolphe Beaulieu, who said: “[There are] still a lot of things that need to happen before he decides if he comes back or not.” Beaulieu did not expand on what those things were, but it seems that at least as of now, Georges St-Pierre will not be returning to fight in the UFC.
