And it has nothing to do with middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
“Georges and I talked a couple days ago when he was in Vegas,” White said. “Georges is saying he wants to fight; we’ll get this thing figured out. We’re talking about Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia. These two are going to fight soon. That will free up the 170-pound champion for Georges St-Pierre to return and try to regain his belt.”
St-Pierre (25-2) initially challenged Bisping for the title, with the bout being penciled in for UFC 213 next week. However, an injury to Bisping and one to the Canadian scrapped those plans.
Prior to leaving the sport in 2013 after a win over Johny Hendricks, St-Pierre held the UFC welterweight title for over 2,000 days.
