GEORGES ST-PIERRE DECLARES HIMSELF A FREE AGENT.

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.

Georges St. Pierre doesn’t want to fight, says UFC boss

A few months back, former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre had said that he will never make his return to the promotion until the UFC implemented third party dope testing.

As a result, when the UFC announced that it would be implementing detailed out of competition dope testing for performance enhancing drugs, many fans and experts began to believe that one of the greatest Mixed Martial Artists of all time would be making his long awaited return to the Octagon.

However, when UFC president Dana White was asked about the scenario following the UFC 184 pay per view event, he said that he hadn’t spoken to him. He mentioned that he has asked him previously if he wants to fight again and things like that, but mentioned that this is one of those sports where if a person doesn’t want to fight, the last thing one would want to do is pressure him into a fight.

Lombard wants Georges St. Pierre fight

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is coming out of retirement, according to Cuban born UFC star Hector Lombard and he wants to set up a fight against him.

The UFC could be making its long awaited debut in Australia with UFC 193 and former Aussie resident wants to make the first UFC event a memorable one by fighting one of the greatest Mixed Martial Arts fighters in the world in Rush.

In a recent interview, Lombard said that if, for some reason, he cannot fight for the title, then he would love to have a fight against Georges St. Pierre. He added that he knows Rush is coming out of self imposed sabbatical or semi retirement and he would love to go head to head against him in Australia, which, according to him, would be quite a shocker.
