"George has also talked about fighting at 155 (lightweight)".
After months of rumours, speculation and false starts, Georges St-Pierre has signed a new contract to return to Ultimate Fighting Championship after more than three years away.
"He's back. I'm excited", said White after the lengthy negotiations were finalized.
The last time we saw St-Pierre in action was at UFC 167 in November of 2013.
While St-Pierre - who was on a 12-fight winning streak before he left the company - does not have an official return fight, he may be seen in the octagon in the third quarter of 2017. In July 2015, the UFC introduced an anti-doping policy enforced by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
A couple of days ago, a report surfaced claiming that the longest reigning welterweight champion in UFC history had agreed to terms on a multi-fight contract with the UFC. He answered that setback by defeating Serra in April 2008.
Senate Confirms Trump's Controversial EPA Pick-Without Reading His Emails
But the Senate declined to (or, perhaps, purposely did not) wait for those emails to vote on the Pruitt nomination. He passed through the Senate 54-46 . "Attorney General Pruitt is a common sense guy", says Blunt.
Citing the pressures of being champion and of being in a constant limelight, St-Pierre said his life has become "completely insane" and a "freaking zoo". It appears all hatchets have been buried and kinks hammered out as GSP is officially back under the UFC promotion. He says he can make the weight. Middleweight champion Michael Bisping was another name mentioned by White.
But St-Pierre (25-2-0) was not willing to jump back on the bandwagon quite yet.
Right now there's word on who St-Pierre will ultimately fight when he returns but it's clear his next bout will be one of the biggest moments in recent UFC history. "We don't have anything booked literally haven't talked to anybody about it".
St-Pierre seemed to be risking widening the divide by aligning with a recently organized fighters association headed by former Bellator head Bjorn Rebney.
Woodley and Thompson are slated to meet in the March 4 main event at UFC 209, while Bisping is now on the sidelines dealing with a knee injury.
The UFC could use St-Pierre, with McGregor awaiting the birth of his child and Ronda Rousey's future up in the air.
