Georges St-Pierre Targets UFC 206 For His Potential UFC Return

Georges St-Pierre doesn’t need to fight again.

But the former UFC welterweight champion does have the itch to compete inside the Octagon once more.

St-Pierre appeared on Wednesday night’s edition of “UFC Tonight” and discussed his potential return, along with when it might happen.

“These guys can elevate me,” said St-Pierre of potential opponents Tyron Woodley, Nick Diaz and Demian Maia. “They’re not necessarily guys I’m supposed to beat.”

GSP said he is in talks with the UFC about getting enrolled in the USADA drug testing program, which requires four months of testing prior to an athlete competing. If that happens, he could fight at UFC 206 in Toronto this December.

While he hasn’t fought since defending his title against Johny Hendricks, St-Pierre has continued to bring in money with movie roles and his sponsorships.

“If you see it from my perspective, I’m making a lot of money now even though I’m not fighting. And my contract is old,” St-Pierre said. “My contract was made before the Reebok deal, and when we asked, basically, it’s now because if I go back and fight I cannot advertise my sponsors, so I’m losing money if I go back to fight on the old terms of my contract. So, it’s reasonable. I’m just waiting to so what’s going to happen.”
