White confident GSP will return


 Although Georges St-Pierre gave no timetable on an expected return to MMA, nor did he say he was retired, UFC President Dana White is confident we will see St-Pierre back in the Octagon:

“He didn’t walk away. He’s going to come back. He has some things he has to handle. He did the classy thing and vacated the title. He did the right thing,” said White during the UFC on Fox 9 post show on Fox Sports 1 on Saturday.  “He’s going to be gone a while. Somebody will win that belt and then he’ll be back.”

Just how long that might take, White wasn’t sure.

“As long as it takes for him to clear out that zoo,” he quipped.

GSP at middleweight wouldn't last a round with Silva.

Remember when Couture came back and beat Silva for the HW title. GSP will do the same.

See "I'm confident GSP vs Silva will happen"See "I'm confident Silva vs Jones will happen"I'm a huge GSP nuthugger, but as has been said around here, if he's not in it 100%, I'd much rather him retain his health and retire with his money. He doesn't owe himself, fans, and especially the UFC anything else.

Burn out most likely. The guy is always in the Gym. He's not one of those guys who only gets in the gym when he has a fight to prepare for.

Yeah, he was such a detriment to the sport. Incredible athlete, dominated his division, all class inside the cage and out, and on the short list of GOAT. 13ers ...

GSP will NOT come crawling back to the UFC, and if he goes back it will be on his terms. According to that celebrity net worth site (I have no clue if that is accurate) GSP is sitting on $20+ Million. Seeing as he isn't a dumb guy I'll assume he won't waste his money.http://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-athletes/mma-net-worth/georges-st-pierre-net-worth/

Probably only relevant if GSP comes crawling back, which I don't think will happen. More likely they want him back and renegotiate the contract for more $$$.

they froze the contract so the inevitable return hype doesn't require more money from them.
