Georges St. Pierre Declined Offer; Still Isn't Ready To Return

Published on February 3rd, 2015 5:33 pm EST

There are always a number of interesting revelations any time the UFC hosts a major event, as they did with UFC 183 in Las Vegas this past weekend.

One of the more interesting revelations from UFC 183 came from UFC President Dana White during his post-fight press scrum. According to White, the UFC offered former Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre the opportunity to fight at UFC 186, which will be taking place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Georges St. Pierre has headlined a number of cards in Montreal in the past and the UFC was clearly hoping that he would be lured back by the opportunity to do so once again.

St. Pierre, though, had other ideas. According to Dana White, St. Pierre informed the UFC President that he "hasn't even started training" and would not be available for a fight at UFC 186.

Despite the two sides having recently conducted a meeting, St. Pierre has given no indication as to what his future plans are as of yet. St. Pierre elected to relinquish his Welterweight title following a successful (though controversial) title defense against Johny Hendricks last year. At the time, St. Pierre cited personal issues as the reason why he was choosing to step away from the UFC.

Retirement? Extended hiatus? Georges St. Pierre has not made his intentions regarding his future clear as of yet and doesn't appear to be willing to take a fight on short notice.

Georges St. Pierre, as we've seen numerous times in the past, is only going to return when and if the time is right.
