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.
Dana White admitted that if he wanted to fight, Georges St. Pierre would have got in touch with him and since he is yet to do that, he cannot say anything with confidence on the matter.
According to the UFC boss, GSP doesn’t want to fight, and if he wants to retire, he is no one to stop him. He will be going out at the top of his game, having made a lot of money. He is currently making movies and if he wants to retire, Dana White admitted that he doesn’t want to be the person to pressure him t get back inside the Octagon and resume his career.
That is very bad news for UFC fans who have already dealt with Anderson Silva failing a dope test and if Georges St. Pierre retires, an era will have ended.
