Dana White Says GSP’s Contract Will Be Frozen Until He Choses To Return Or Not

Even though he has given up his title and is taking a break from competing, Georges St. Pierre can return to his current contract at any time , should he so desire to return to his MMA career. St. Pierre didn’t explicitly say he would retire, and hinted that he may possibly return to the MMA in the future.

UFC President Dana White shared that St.Pierre’s contract will be there for him, should he chose to return. This is what he had to say on the matter:

“His contract freezes. If Georges St-Pierre stays out for six months or six years, his contract is frozen. So when he comes back, his contract will start again with his first fight [when he returns].”

St. Pierre didn’t actually say retirement, which leaves the door open for him to return to the UFC . White believes there is a good chance that St. Pierre will return to the UFC eventually and he said “Because he’s walking away,” White said, “it’s like you put a bookmark in it and wait to see how this story ends.”
