Georges St Pierre signs with UFC

<p>Georges St. Pierre is officially back.</p> <p>After months of on-and-off negotiations, St. Pierre and the UFC have finally agreed to a multi-fight deal.</p> <p>&ldquo;He&rsquo;s back. I&rsquo;m excited. We worked at it for a long time and finally got it done,&rdquo; <a href="http://www.latimes.com/sports/boxing/la-sp-sn-ufc-georges-st-pierre-dana-white-bisping-woodley-20170217-story.html">said UFC president Dana White</a> about the signing of St. Pierre.</p> <p>Rumors of St. Pierre&rsquo;s return began last June when it was announced that he had entered USADA&rsquo;s testing pool for a possible bout at UFC 206 in Toronto. The two parties were not able to reach an agreement and negotiations came to a halt. After that, the former welterweight champion co-founded The MMA Athlete&rsquo;s Association which made his return to competition seem unlikely.</p> <p>St. Pierre (25-2) last fought at UFC 167 in 2013 where he won a controversial split-decision over Johny Hendricks, after which he announced he would be taking time off from the sport. Prior to his retirement, he had defended the 170-lb title nine consecutive times which includes wins over BJ Penn, Josh Koscheck, Carlos Condit, and Nick Diaz.</p> <p>So far, St. Pierre&rsquo;s next opponent has not been announced but White listed a few potential matchups.</p> <p>&ldquo;It could be the winner of Tyron Woodley and Stephen &lsquo;Wonderboy&rsquo; Thompson, or it could be Michael Bisping,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;Georges also talked about fighting at 155 pounds&mdash;he says he can make the weight.&rdquo;</p>
