Dana White Says GSP Will Return

This weekend is all about the UFC’s welterweight division. For the first time in six years, someone not named Georges St. Pierre will walk out of the octagon, the undisputed UFC Welterweight Champion of the world. Whether it is the “uncrowned” champion, Johny Hendricks, or the MMA veteran, Robbie Lawler, history will be made Saturday night. Problem is, the news coming out of Dallas may completely overshadow the winner of the fight.

UFC President, Dana White, told reporters in Dallas on Thursday that he “knows for a fact” that the former champion, St. Pierre, will some day make a return to the UFC. No date has been set, no word has come from St. Pierre’s camp on White’s proclamation, yet his words will definitely be the talk of the town this weekend.

Adding further intrigue to this situation is the fact that White said there’s no guarantee that Carlos Condit or Tyron Woodley would receive a title shot after their fight on Saturday. Now in my opinion, I think he’s talking more about Woodley, than Condit. There is a definite argument to made that Condit is the best welterweight in the world right now. I think with a win on Saturday, Condit is next in line. What happens after that is the big question. Will St. Pierre return before 2014 comes to an end?

It looks as though, one of the best ever, will be back before we know it.
