Following the news that Georges St-Pierre has joined the MMA Athletes Association, the Canadian star is also reporting the UFC has contacted his team to resume negotiations.

A few weeks ago, St-Pierre announced that his lawyer had determined that he’s no longer under contract with the UFC, after the promotion failed to meet their deadline for a fight offer. The UFC, however, has stated that they believe St-Pierre remains under contract.

This aside, recently GSP appeared on Canada’s TSN, and while doing so, the former welterweight champ said this (quote via MMA Fighting.com):

“No, no it doesn’t mean I’m done with the UFC,” said St-Pierre, when asked if his role with the MMA AA indicates he’s split from the UFC. “Like other members, like Cain Velasquez, Tim Kennedy, Cowboy Cerrone, they’re all seasoned fighters. Doesn’t mean I’m done. Actually, the night that we launched the association we received a letter, Rodolphe [Beaulieu] received a letter – my agent – from the UFC lawyer saying that they want to renew the negotiation with me because at the point where I was before the negotiation, the communication was cut. So we didn’t have any kind of communication.”

GSP has not fought now since 2013, when he announced he was taking a hiatus from fighting and vacated the 170 title.
