Dana White: I know for a fact that Georges St. Pierre will return to UFC

USA TODAY Sports

Music to "GSP" fans' ears everywhere.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre recently teased a potential comeback to mixed martial arts (MMA) after walking away from the sport a few months ago.

Now, UFC President Dana White guarantees that his former top box office draw will indeed return to the Octagon and get back to doing what he does best, and that's fight.

And by the sound of it, "Rush's" first fight will be against the new welterweight champion who will be crowned this weekend (March 15, 2014) in Dallas, Texas, as Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks vie for the strap St. Pierre left behind.

His words (via MMA Fighting):

"I know for a fact he will (return). Is it fun for Georges St. Pierre to be gone? I mean, no, I wouldn't say that it's fun for him to be gone. But the welterweight division is exciting right now, and when Georges does come back, whoever's standing there, it will be a fun fight."

Indeed, it looks like all the issues "GSP" was having -- which we now know was a tough battle with obsessive compulsive disorder -- seem to be in check.

While no potential date is set for the French-Canadian's return to MMA, White is confident Georges' fighting days are far from over, which can only mean positive things for the Zuffa-owned company and "GSP" himself.

One thing is certain, when the day finally does arrive, "Rush" will have a "fun" fight lined up, possibly against "Ruthless" or "Bigg Rigg."

But will St. Pierre suffer from ring rust?
