With a big UFC show coming up in Montreal on April 25th in Montreal, naturally fans and media alike began to wonder if this could be the site that sees the return of the one of the greatest fighters of all time, Georges St-Pierre. The longtime welterweight champion decided to take a break from the sport last year after UFC 167, and what better place to come back than in the Bell Centre at UFC 186?
"GSP - I called GSP. Yeah I did ask GSP if he wanted to fight in that fight (card). He said 'I haven't even started training yet, Dana.'"
St-Pierre (25-2) tore his left ACL last April while training, and White stated in October that he had been cleared to start training again. He also tore his left ACL in 2011, but successfully returned from that to defend his title three more times before stepping away. The 33-year-old still hasn't indicated if there's a good chance of him returning to the sport or not.
