UFC president Dana White on Friday made Georges St-Pierre‘s return to the Octagon official.
While he fell short of naming a timeline or opponent for St-Pierre, White confirmed the former champion’s comeback to the L.A. Times following an earlier report this week by MMAFighting.com citing unnamed sources. White indicated the contract was signed on Thursday.
“He’s back. I’m excited,” White told the Times’ Lance Pugmire. “We worked at it …
