Over two months have passed since Georges St-Pierre announced his desire to return to the UFC, yet still the welterweight legend not only remains without a fight booked, but UFC president Dana White also continues to insist that St-Pierre doesn't actually have the desire to fight at all.

However, that’s not necessarily the case, according to St-Pierre, who says his goal is to still fight “The Count” because he would have much more to gain fighting — and beating -- him than defeating current 170-pound roost ruler, Tyron Woodley.

Previously, considering the possibility of Gina “Conviction” Iniong squaring off with ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angel “Unstoppable” Lee inside the ONE Championship cage seemed to be a far-fetched dream.
However, tides have overturned after Asia’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization acquired Iniong from the free agent market earlier this year.
