Dana White and Georges St-Pierre to hold special conference call Friday afternoon

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Thursday evening the UFC announced that there will be an impromptu conference call regarding the future of the Welterweight champ on Friday.

Ever since his awkward UFC 167 post-fight speech, rumors and speculation have abound regarding the future of Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. It came out earlier this week that St-Pierre was planning an announcement at a press conference Friday morning for a PR event. Apparently those plans have changed.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani following the UFC on Fox 9 pre-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White said he was planning on speaking with GSP Thursday at 7p ET. Just under an hour and a half later the UFC's Sr. Director of Public Relations sent out this tweet:

Exactly what this means is anyone's guess at this point, but it's definitely an interesting development. Will St-Pierre retire on this conference call? Or will he and Dana White announce the rematch against Johny Hendricks?

Bloody Elbow will be here tomorrow to report the news.
