Source: UFC- UFC president Dana White recently sat down with the media during UFC 171's media day. When asked if he knows whether or not former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre will return, White said:
"I know for a fact he will. I haven't talked to him, [I've] text him. I mean, we text. He said thanks for all the things you said in my documentary. [I said] It's a pleasure, no problem. That's all we've said to each other since the last time we talked."
- The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 coaches Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen were originally scheduled to face off at UFC 173 on May 24, however the bout was pushed back to UFC Fight Night on May 31. However, figh agreements have yet to be signed, and Sonnen has asserted that Silva has been stalling, leading people to wonder if Wanderlei was ducking out of the fight. White noted that it was not the case.
"It'll get done. We'll get it done... he's not balking at all," White said. "He's not balking, not even a little bit. It's not over money either. What else could it be? I can't tell ya. It has to do with the show. It has to do with the show, as far as I can tell you."
