Long-time welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will return to the cage for one more fight, St-Pierre’s former manager Stephane Patry has announced

Fight promoter and manager, Stephane Patry has announced that Montreal’s Georges St-Pierre is set to return to the cage – but only for one more fight.

Long-time welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will return to the cage for one more fight, St-Pierre’s former manager Stephane Patry has announced. "Georges is going to come back for one fight," Patry announced to the press. "I can't say he's going to come back and go on a title run and do 10 fights, but I know for sure he's going to come back for one fight."

Some seem discouraged by the news, including UFC president Dana White. Despite his long history with the sport, after St-Pierre’s refusal to fight in UFC 186, a return to the sport seemed unlikely. Although Patry personally believes that St-Pierre should stay out of the cage, he insists that the refusal was due to a combination of circumstances, including St-Pierre's knee injury.

"It's one of those things where, Georges got injured, which is something that wasn't expected,” Patry continued. "But I know that Georges has the will, and he wants one more fight. He doesn't want to leave the sport with that fight with (Johny) Hendricks, I know that for a fact."

Free Form Fighters, a UK provider of MMA clothing and equipment, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson for the company commented on St-Pierre’ return, saying “Georges St-Pierre is a massive name in MMA and when you hear that he’s coming back for one more fight everyone sits up and takes notice. We’re all very excited at the prospect of St-Pierre return to the cage, but with his recent injury a few people have voiced concern for his well-being. When even the pro’s get hurt it shows how important it is to invest in high quality MMA gear for both training and competition matches.”
