UFC Meets With Georges St-Pierre in Montreal – Possible Comeback Discussed?

UFC president Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta, who is the co-owner, chair and CEO of the UFC, reportedly met with former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, earlier today in Montreal.

According to journalist Steven Chmielash, who was in Montreal covering the Luka Magnotta trial, St-Pierre, White and Fertitta had lunch at a high-end restaurant in downtown Montreal.

No specific details of the meeting have been revealed, but you would have to think the discussion of a possible comeback for the former welterweight king were one of the topics.

Shortly after his controversial split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, back on November 16th, 2013, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, St-Pierre decided he needed to step away from fighting.

St-Pierre revealed he had personal issues that he needed to deal with, and relinquished his title that he held for 5-years.

Many people surrounding Georges St-Pierre feel he will return to the UFC, once he’s fully rehabbed his most recent knee injury, his second serious knee injury of his career.

If St-Pierre does come back, it will be interesting to see if his good friend Rory MacDonald will be holding the title he once did. The UFC have confirmed that MacDonald will face the winner of the title fight between Johny Hendircks and Robbie Lawler.

Regardless of the situation, the UFC would be more than happy to have one of their biggest pay-per-view draws back.

After becoming aware of Chmielash’s Tweet, Dana White joked with him

The UFC is projected to return to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, for an event in March, 2015. It’s unlikely St-Pierre could be ready to make his comeback on that date.
