- The UFC has posted a free fight in promotion of this weekend's UFC 197 event, which features former UFC Light Heayvweight Champion Jon Jones. The company published the Jones vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson bout from UFC 135, which saw Jones win via unanimous decision over the one-time TNA Wrestling talent. Wrestling Inc will have full, live coverage of UFC 197 this Saturday night.
- Since about October, former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre has been teasing a return to the UFC. After a two-plus year layoff, GSP appeared on The MMA Hour Today and said that the Reebok deal was one of the things keeping the Under Armour endorsed star from coming back.
"It changed a lot of things in my contract," GSP told Ariel Helwani. "We need to renegotiate maybe a new contract. I'm not allowed to wear my sponsors anymore, and I lose money. It depends how it's gonna go down with the UFC. We'll see what's gonna happen."
Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting has a great write-up of the interview, which you can check out at this link.
