He’s posted pictures of having breakfast with Gracie jiu-jitsu maestros Roger Gracie and Braulio Estima. The pictures he shared also shows him with Marcus Buchecha, Cheick Kongo, Christophe Midoux, Abner Mares, Gem Danois , Jeff Ayers, Mario Lopez. He’s also ssen with singing star Usher and Hollywood star Owen Wilson.
It isn’t clearly known if St Pierre will ever return to UFC. He has said that if UFC Doesn’t implement a stricter drug testing policy, he wouldn’t return.
Dana White, president of UFC has said that if Georges St Pierre returns to the UFC octagon he will get to compete in a title fight. He’ll have a shot at taking back the title he lost to Johnny Hendricks. Dana White has made it clear that when St Pierre wishes to return is completely up to him.
He said, “It would be tough to deny that GSP comes right back and doesn’t fight for the title, you know what I mean.”
According to White St Pierre has absolute liberty to choose whether he wants to or not in the matter of returning to UFC. Dana White said, “GSP can do whatever he wants, if he wants to come back and fight for the title, or if he wants a fight before that, he can do whatever he wants.”
The main event for the recent UFC fight night is going to be Mark Hunt versus Roy Nelson. The 39 year old Mark Hunt will be out to prove his might yet again. He is a favorite among the Australian crowd. The Super Samoan as he calls himself has been known for his strength and ability to fight back from whatever position he might be in. He created sensation as he burst into the scene by defeating veteran MMA fighter Wanderlei Silva. He suffered a string of losses after that but came back even stronger and managed to cement his place as one of the most feared Heavyweight competitors going around. However his opponent Roy Nelson is a force to reckon with. Although his appearance lacks the usual toughness and agility of a MMA fighter but looks are only deceptive. The simpleton is not only aggressive but he can actually demolish his opponent on his own day. He will be looking to make every move count and putting in all the efforts to come out on the top of his rival.
The verbal battle between the two has also been quite strong over the past few days. Mark Hunt clearly mentioned that he is an entertainer by profession. Thereby the utmost priority of his would be to hurt his opponent whether the fight lasts a few seconds or the entire time span. He is excited about fighting one of the most feared persons in the heavyweight category. The ultimate objective of the New Zealand born Australian is to have a title shot. He plans to face off with Cain Velasquez and draws inspiration from his success. Knocking out his opponents is one of the things that Mark Hunt wants to achieve and presently Cain Velasquez absolutely dominates on that facet of fighting.

Chad Mendes will finally get his shot at the Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Featherweight Championship, but he will have to travel all the way up to Brazil for that.
In a recent announcement, UFC boss Dana White confirmed that Mendes will take on the UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo at Rio de Janeiro on the 25th of October in the main event of UFC 179.
Aldo was scheduled to defend his title against Mendes in the main event of UFC 176 on August 2nd but the entire event had to be scrapped after the Brazilian suffered a spine and neck injury while preparing for the event. White had recently confirmed that Junior would be able to return within 45 days and that has clearly been the message given out with this new booking.
Jose Aldo has a record of 24-1 in his professional career and has already beaten Mendes in a knockout win back in 2012 in Brazil. Since that win over Mendes, he has also defended the title three times and will go into the fight as the overwhelming favourite.
Mendes, on the other hand, has taken five successive wins since that loss to Aldo and most recently defeated Nick Lentz via a unanimous decision back in December to earn a shot at the title.
The Brazilian, who hasn’t suffered defeat since 2005, will be looking to improve his record even further with another win over his old enemy as he looks to leave the Featherweight division to move up a weight class to Lightweight and challenge for the UFC Lightweight Championship, but that is still up for debate whether Jose Aldo wants to do that right now considering he turned down the chance once, despite claiming that he nothing more to offer to the 145 lbs. weight category of the UFC.
