The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, has now declared that his free agency is official… After his legal team terminated his ZUFFA contract. You know what this means… “Rush” is going to have to try and look elsewhere for him to have his next mixed martial arts (MMA) fight.
“I got angry and talked to my advisor and hired the best lawyer in the business, James Quinn,” St-Pierre said. “He gave them a legal deadline. I have a 2011 contract, he gave them a deadline to give me me a fight because I wanted to fight.”
The promotion, however, insists the longtime king of pay-per-view (PPV) is still bound by his UFC deal and won’t be going anywhere — except maybe a courtroom to sort this mess out.
“Georges St-Pierre remains under an existing agreement with Zuffa, LLC as his MMA promoter,” The UFC countered. “Zuffa intends to honor its agreement with St-Pierre and reserves its rights under the law to have St-Pierre do the same.”
