As it stated in We’ll discuss what’s next for winners like Derrick Lewis, Johny Hendricks, Paul Felder and Sara McMann.
Today on the podcast, we’ll go into detail about what’s next for Georges St-Pierre as he returns to the Octagon.
As is customary, I’ll post the video window here as the event draws near and I’ll answer any questions you may have if you post them in the comments section below.
We’ll also recap the two events from over the weekend, UFC Halifax and Bellator 172.
Right now, Conor McGregor and Michael Bisping are GSP’s two preferred choices, it appears, with Bisping being the frontrunner.

Georges St-Pierre signs to return to the UFC
White said two friends of St-Pierre whom he refused to identify played a key role in brokering an agreement to bring St-Pierre back.
Georges St-Pierre has officially signed a new fight agreement with the UFC, company President Dana White told the Los Angeles Times on Friday, giving the organization a bona fide pay-per-view headliner to cushion the absence of Conor McGregor.
The deal for his return was signed Thursday, White said.
St-Pierre seemed to be risking widening the divide by aligning with a recently organized fighters association headed by former Bellator head Bjorn Rebney.
St-Pierre was the UFC’s top pay-per-view draw and a dominant force in the UFC from 2006 to 2013, losing only once after taking the belt from Matt Hughes in Sacramento at UFC 63 in November 2006.

Georges St-Pierre inks new deal to return to the UFC
Ultimately, St-Pierre declared himself a free agent as he sought to break free from his previous deal with the UFC.
The longest reigning welterweight champion in UFC history inked a new contract with the promotion this week that will see St-Pierre return to action for the first time since 2013.
Both welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and middleweight champ Michael Bisping have expressed interest in facing St-Pierre.
When St-Pierre last fought in the UFC, the promotion hadn’t inked a multi-year deal with Reebok, which now prevents athletes from wearing outside sponsors into the Octagon.
Right now there’s word on who St-Pierre will ultimately fight when he returns but it’s clear his next bout will be one of the biggest moments in recent UFC history.
