UFC Champ Georges St-Pierre to Shed Light on Fighting Future at Friday Appearance

Georges St-Pierre UFC World TourUFC welterweight champion George St-Pierre’s future has remained under a cloud of secrecy over the weeks following his split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas.

That soon may change.

According to a report from The Canadian Press, St-Pierre is currently on vacation in Dubai, but will be making an appearance in Quebec City later this week, where he will answer questions regarding his future.

Following his victory over Hendricks, St-Pierre stirred up a pot of controversy, saying, “[I’m going to] hang my gloves up for a little bit and make sense of my life,” without offering any sense of what he meant.

He did not say he was going to retire, but he also didn’t say he wasn’t when UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan asked him point-blank.

St-Pierre seems to have come to some sort of decision regarding his future, as he confirmed to The Canadian Press via text message that he would be announcing his future at the Friday appearance in Quebec City.

UFC president Dana White told The Canadian Press that he was letting St-Pierre “have his time” and that he didn’t know what his future plans were.

St-Pierre’s manager, Rodolphe Beaulieu, said Friday’s appearance at a skating rink was a previously scheduled appearance for fans and sponsors, but added that St-Pierre would field a few questions from media.
