GSP hoping for December return at UFC 206 in Toronto

<p>Former longtime UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre says a comeback at UFC 206 in Toronto is possible.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/8/25/12646610/georges-st-pierre-all-the-stars-are-aligned-for-ufc-return-in-toronto">In a phone interview with MMAFighting</a>, GSP discussed the details of his current stage of negotiations with the UFC as well as other factors involved in a potential return.</p> <p>&quot;All the stars are aligned, my friend,&quot; St-Pierre said in the interview. &quot;I&#39;m not lying to you, it&#39;s not done yet. It&#39;s not done at this point. We still have to talk to the new owners soon, see what they&#39;ve gotta say.&quot;</p> <p>St. Pierre officially entered USADA&rsquo;s testing pool on August 10 and is required to be randomly tested at their discretion for at least four months before being allowed to compete. This would make him eligible to fight at UFC 206 which takes place on December 10, exactly four months from the date he began his testing. The event is also scheduled to take place in Toronto, where GSP set the current record for the highest UFC gate at $12 million for his showdown against Jake Shields.</p> <p>The 35-year old has not fought since his split-decision win over Johny Hendricks in 2013 in what was the ninth consecutive defense of his welterweight title. He discussed his primary motive for wanting to make a return this year.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&#39;m very well represented. I&#39;m very confident and trusting in the people that work for me. I&#39;m very well taken care of for that,&rdquo; said St. Pierre. &ldquo;I want to go back to fighting. I don&#39;t have to. I would like to, because I feel I&#39;m in my prime right now. I&#39;m the best I&#39;ve ever been at 35. Right now. I don&#39;t want to wait any longer, because if I wait too long I&#39;m gonna be past that prime and I don&#39;t want that. This is a good time to be back right now. That&#39;s why I want to go back.&quot;</p> <p>In terms of the negotiations, GSP said that he and his management team are currently waiting on a response from the UFC, which was recently sold to new owners.</p> <p>&quot;It depends on them. We put our cards on the table, see what&#39;s going to happen. I think my agents are talking to the new owners pretty soon. So we&#39;re going to have some news.&quot;</p>
