The UFC 206 would be missing a former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (GSP) as recent indications suggest that he would not be making any appearance in the Octagon.
Recent report had filtered in earlier this fall revealing that GSP had declared himself a free agent as his arrangement with MMAAA has failed to pass through.
Recall that late in October a controversy has broken out between the fighter and the UFC. GSP had then announced that the UFC breached its contract with him, therefore he was a free agent, however the UFC had refuted the claims insisting that GSP was still under contract with the company.
Responding to the dispute Jim Quinn, GSP’s lawyer, pointed out that the contract with his client has run its course and as such is duly terminated. He added that the UFC may either offer to renew his client’s contract, or take legal action against the fighter. Quinn further accused the UFC of not offering fights to his client.
