Hey – you in the market for a 170-pound MMA fighter?  If you are, do I have a deal for you!  How’d you like to get your hands on the greatest welterweight fighter of all-time, Georges St-Pierre?!  Because for promoters outside the UFC, that is actually an option now.

In a bombshell announcement, GSP stated on The MMA Hour today that he is out of his UFC contract and is a free agent.  As he explains it (and as it is detailed on The MMA Hour‘s home site, MMA Fighting), the ongoing negotiations for his return to the UFC’s octagon have fallen apart, and he is free and clear of his contractual commitment to the promotion.

“You heard it right,” GSP told host Ariel Helwani.   “I’m a free agent.”

Apparently he had a deal offered to him by former UFC boss Lorenzo Fertitta that the new ownership failed to agree with.  And after a proposed fight with Robbie Lawler was scrapped because Lawler wanted to take time off, GSP was clear of his UFC contract (according to his lawyer).

“At least I’m a free man,”  St-Pierre went on to state.  “Now, I know I’m free. I have other options. I’m not caught up legally with a contract. I’m a free man.”

UFC representatives have yet to make a statement on the accuracy of GSP’s beliefs, but it’s safe to say we haven’t heard the last of this.
