  • UFC fighter Georges St. Pierre

Georges St-Pierre officially has an opponent for his UFC return.

The UFC later said in a news release that the fight would take place in the second half of 2017.

Last month, White mentioned St-Pierre had broached the possibility of moving down to 155 pounds.

Before taking his break from the sport, the 35-year-old was on a six-year winning streak encompassing 12 fights, unifying the welterweight title against Matt Serra in April 2008.

Yet there's the backlash I've seen many fans speaking of online, that of the fact clear No. 1 middleweight contender Yoel Romero was denied his title shot at Bisping, something White had seemingly promised "Soldier of God" recently.

And yet, despite the long layoff and likely turning 36 years old and moving up in weight to fight a champion, St-Pierre isn't considered the underdog in his comeback fight vs.

Little by little, Georges St-Pierre's return to the Octagon is becoming real. That's the only reason he's in my mind. Bisping successfully defended his title against Dan Henderson in a grudge rematch in October and will look to defend his title against St-Pierre next. "If I wasn't offered a fight with him [in 2016], I wouldn't be thinking Georges St-Pierre". Call me stupid, but I want that f*cking carrot. I want it for my children's sake, for my family, for when I'm retired so we can still live a good life. "There's a lot of things that have to happen for Georges to come back, and then we'll pick a date".

St-Pierre admitted last year that he was anxious he would regret, years down the line, not coming back, especially because he felt "right now that I'm at my best ..." Instead, his return is set - and with it comes the opportunity to make even more history.
