Georges St-Pierre & UFC Agree To Terms On New Multi-Fight Deal

According to noted MMA journalist Ariel Helwani of the Mmafighting.com, multiple sources have confirmed that the former champion is on the verge of signing a new multi-fight contract with the UFC.

"While St-Pierre's return fight has yet to be finalized, the current plan is for him to compete later this year", wrote Helwani. While nothing is official just yet, Helwani also added that "a return in the third quarter of 2017 is now being targeted". Speculation has been rife in recent times, however; St-Pierre, Dana White and Michael Bisping have all alluded to a potential return to the octagon for the UFC legend. GSP had revealed that the UFC protecting drug enhanced fighters had a part to play in his decision to take a hiatus from the sport.

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".

Georges St-Pierre is close to returning to the UFC. UFC Middleweight champion Michael Bisping has been urging to have a big-money fight with "Rush".

After more than three years, Georges St-Pierre might step into the Octagon again.

During UFC 208 fight week, Dana White provided an update on negotiations with St-Pierre, perhaps hinting towards significant progress being made. There, of course, will be no shortage of willing dance-partners for the undoubtedly strong PPV-draw that is Georges St-Pierre but there are only a select few who would capture the imagination of the public enough to warrant an offer. Jon Jones is now suspended until July 6th this year, while Conor McGregor's break from fighting, coupled with a desire to take on boxer Floyd Mayweather, could see him miss the entirety of 2017.
