Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is heading back into the octagon. The former champion has not competed in the sport of mixed martial arts for over three years. His most recent bout was against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in 2013.
Now, Goerges St-Pierre is returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. However, the fighter is not returning to his weight class. Rather, the former champion is stepping up to the middleweight division.
Having never competed as a middleweight, the fighter will be making his Ultimate Fighting Championship return in a middleweight title fight. The mixed martial arts warrior will be challenging the reigning middleweight champion Michael “The Count” Bisping.
While an official date for the title fight has yet to be set, both fighters are hard into their training in anticipation for the epic clash. In the video below, Georges St-Pierre can be seen working a heavy bag. The fighter is potentially looking larger than ever.
