TORONTO – A press conference was held today at the Sports Centre Café in Toronto, Canada as Georges “Rush” St. Pierre received official word that he will get his much deserved title shot against UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes. As for the timeframe, MMAWeekly.com has learned that the fight will most likely happen in September.

St. Pierre was extremely happy when the announcement was made. He said, “Now it’s official. Now it’s for real. It’s my dream come true! It’s all about respect, and I finally have it… YES, FINALLY!”

Mark “The Machine” Hominick and Sam Stout were also on-hand with the Canadian media, including The Fight Network.
