GSP return looking imminent

Reports are suggesting that former welterweight superstar Georges St-Pierre is in the midst of finalising a return to the UFC. 

According to MMA Fighting, the Canadian fighter is on the cusp of announcing a new deal with the brand after walking away from the sport in 2013.

St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 to defend his welterweight championship belt, but immediately vacated his title and took some time off from MMA.

However, in June 2016, St-Pierre announced he was training and ready to resume his glittering career and began contract talks.

Recently, UFC boss Dana White admitted to meeting with Freddie Roach – one of St-Pierre’s trainers – and then just last week White added that he had been in talks with St-Pierre himself.

The 35-year-old left the UFC off the back of a 12 win streak which took him to 25 wins in total, making him one of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport.
