Georges St-Pierre won't be fighting in Toronto at UFC 206, as Dana White let on a few days ago. In fact, it looks as if he won't be fighting in the UFC any time soon, if ever again. St-Pierre made a massive announcement on The MMA Hour, saying that he's a free agent, with his lawyer terminating his contract with the UFC.
GSP says his lawyer terminated his contract after giving UFC a deadline to fight on his old deal. Sounds like it's not a mutual decision.— Shaheen Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) October 17, 2016
GSP: Most fighters in the UFC, they are starving. For the UFC, when you keep a lot of your staff starving, they are easier to control.— Shaheen Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) October 17, 2016
GSP believes a deal could've been reached if Lorenzo was still there, "but when the new owners came, all the offers were off the table."— Shaheen Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) October 17, 2016
As far as his fighting future and fielding offers from other promotions, with Bellator MMA standing out as one of the lead names to sign him, he simply replied, "We'll see what's going to happen."
