Although Georges St-Pierre recently announced he was officially retiring from fighting, there’s been speculation as to whether the legend could still return to the cage. But, if that were to happen, St-Pierre would need to inform USADA six months in advance of a comeback fight.

That’s because, according to a report from ESPN, the UFC’s former welterweight and middleweight champ has officially been removed from USADA’s drug testing pool. If the Canadian star decides he wants to fight again, he will need to inform the organization six months in advance and re-enter the drug testing regiment.

Prior to his retirement, St-Pierre had expressed an interest in fighting UFC lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov. But, UFC President Dana White had reported the promotion was not interested in booking that match-up.
