Dana White Reveals New Comeback Fight For Georges St-Pierre

It appears we now know why the UFC wanted to get Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia booked as quickly as possible. UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie that Georges St-Pierre will challenge the winner of the UFC 214 welterweight title fight.

"Georges and I talked a couple days ago when he was in Vegas," White said. "Georges is saying he wants to fight; we'll get this thing figured out. We're talking about Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia. These two are going to fight soon. That will free up the 170-pound champion for Georges St-Pierre to return and try to regain his belt."

In a perfect world, the Woodley-Maia winner would defend the title in November when the UFC returns to New York City for a planned pay-per-view. White didn't want to confirm that due to possible injuries that could change that.

St-Pierre, who held the welterweight title from 2008-13, announced his return earlier this year after a self-imposed retirement. He was originally scheduled to challenge Michael Bisping for the middleweight belt.
