Manager: Georges St. Pierre has no plans for UFC return in 2015

Well, this is a bummer.

Unless, of course, you are in the top five of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight division, because no Georges St. Pierre means one less person clogging up the 170-pound lane, which continues to get bogged down with new names and faces (like this one).

Either way, it doesn't sound like the ex-champ is in a "Rush" to come back.

"There is no plan for 2015," manager Rodolphe Beaulieu told "We are working on a few projects, but nothing related for him coming back in the Octagon."

Uh oh.

Following his abrupt departure, which left the mixed martial arts (MMA) world with a new pay-per-view (PPV) king, the 170-pound throne was awarded to Johny Hendricks, who then lost it to Robbie Lawler.

St. Pierre, 33, walked away from the fight game in December 2013 to clear his mind, as well as rest his body, but suffered a serious setback when he ruptured his ACL. After getting his knee cleared to resume full training, it seemed like a matter of when he would return, as opposed to if.

Guess not.
