After what seems like an infinite loop of speculation, Georges St-Pierre may finally announce his official return next week.
St-Pierre recently attended a news conference to promote the World Championships of Gymnastics coming to Montreal in 2017. Of course, St-Pierre can't go anywhere without being questioned on his UFC return.
"There are a lot of things going on right now," St-Pierre told members of the media, as reported by Réseau des sports (translated by Google Translate). "I can not say too much, but I promise you that you will probably have news next week. There are many things that brew, a little delicate things we can not talk now because it's happening. "
Fans and fellow fighters alike have been hoping for a GSP comeback for years now. Even Michael Bisping wants him to return.
But will this be the answer that everyone has been waiting for?
Rumors reached a fever pitch when St-Pierre released the information that he had entered into the USADA testing pool months ago. The undisputed welterweight legend has finished up his four month testing cycle that ends in December, just in time for UFC 206 in Toronto. If all of this just seems too good to be true, it's because it could be.
"It may be a coincidence, maybe not. We will see," St-Pierre said.
In the meantime, UFC 206 in Toronto picked up its main event earlier tonight, with Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier set to take on Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. The current card is as follows:
- Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson
- Poliana Botelho vs. Valerie Letourneau
- John Moraga vs. Zach Makovsky
- Lando Vannata vs. John Makdessi
- Drew Dober vs. Olivier Aubin-Mercier
- Rustam Khabilov vs. Jason Saggo
