Ronda Rousey is toast. Conor McGregor is in chill-mode and probably pursuing a million-dollar payday in boxing. Jon Jones… man, who knows what’s up with him. Meanwhile, WME has a UFC to run, and with no stars to make those monstrous pay-per-view dollars, desperation hangs like a cloak over their shoulders.
Time to make that deal with GSP!
As per MMAFighting:
At long last, Georges St-Pierre appears headed back to the UFC.
St-Pierre, the former UFC welterweight champion, is on the verge of signing a new multi-fight contract with the promotion, multiple sources confirmed with MMA Fighting.
After months of on-and-off negotiations, both sides have agreed to terms on a new deal, MMA Fighting has learned.
While St-Pierre’s return fight has yet to be finalized, the current plan is for him to compete later this year. A return in the third quarter of 2017 is currently being targeted, sources say.
