It finally appears like former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre could be returning to the promotion.
On Wednesday morning, a report from Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com announced St-Pierre and the UFC have agreed to terms and are currently working to finalize a new contract.
St-Pierre, who retired while holding the 170-pound championship, has not fought since November 2013.
The UFC and St-Pierre have been negotiating his potential return for months, but were never able to work out terms. The fact that St-Pierre is now targeted for a return in the third quarter of 2017 has to excite mixed martial arts fans.
As for who will fight St-Pierre in his return to the Octagon, there is no word.
St-Pierre, however, has previously expressed interest in returning as a middleweight to fight Michael Bisping for the title. There is no indication on whether St-Pierre will return to compete at 170 or 185-pounds, though there are intriguing fights in both weight classes.
St-Pierre currently has 12 straight wins, with his last loss coming a decade ago in 2007.
