UFC chief Dana White has confirmed Georges St-Pierre will face the winner of the welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia.
Woodley will defend the strap at UFC 214 in what promises to be a fascinating contest. And the winner of the showdown looks poised to take on St-Pierre in what'll be his first professional bout since November 2013.
"Georges is saying he wants to fight; we'll get this thing figured out," White said, per Mike Bohn and John Morgan of MMA Fighting. "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."
