Fight promoter and Georges St-Pierre’s former manager Stephane Patry told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of “The MMA Hour” that he believes GSP will return to the UFC for at least one more fight.
“Georges is going to come back for one fight,” Patry said. “I can’t say he’s going to come back and go on a title run and do 10 fights, but I know for sure he’s going to come back for one fight.”
Patry continued, “It’s one of those things where, Georges got injured, which is something that wasn’t expected, and Anderson Silva got caught with steroids, so I mean, there’s a lot of things that have happened in the past few months that can change the scenario a little bit. But I know that Georges has the will, and he wants one more fight. He doesn’t want to leave the sport with that fight with [Johny] Hendricks, I know that for a fact.”
Patry believes it will take the right fight to bring back the Canadian MMA mega-star.
“He’s going to come back for that one fight everyone wants to see,” Patry said. “Everyone points to Anderson Silva, if he was going to fight on that card, then Dana didn’t offer him Anderson Silva. So he’s not going to come back for one fight that doesn’t mean much in the history of mixed martial arts. He wants to make history with that one fight. With what happened with Anderson in that one fight and his problems with the commission, I don’t know what’s going to happen now.”
