While Georges St-Pierre is focusing on balancing the revenue distribution between the promoter and fighter through a newly formed group called the Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA), President Dana White has recently indicated out of the blue that there could be some room for flexibility on GSP’s pay.
In a radio show interview on Chad Dukes vs. the World, White stated that GSP still remains under contract with the UFC, but is now open to give the former welterweight champion more money if he is “reasonable.”
I have a good relationship with Georges and yeah, obviously, we would love him to fight. The problem is, Georges has a deal. Georges is under contract with us right now. He has a deal. I’m not afraid to givemore money, but it’s got to be reasonable.
GSP is currently making a leap in combat sport through the MMAAA alongside top UFC stars such as Cain Velasquez, Tim Kennedy, and TJ Dillashaw. He informed MMAFighting.com that negotiations between him and the UFC have not been resolved yet.
At the moment, GSP still believes he’s a free agent.
