With rumors circulating that UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has a big announcement this coming Friday, UFC President Dana White went on record to tell everything that it’s not likely the retirement announcement some are expecting.

When asked this week about the announcement he responded:

“That’s not true; he’s not making any announcement on Friday,” White said. “This thing was planned for months. He’s going up to the opening of a mall, and he’s signing autographs for fans, and he’s going to do 10 minutes with the media. People are talking about he called a press conference and other things. I’m not saying he might not have something to say in these 10 minutes. He might. But it’s no crazy announcement like everybody was saying earlier.”

When asked about whether he thinks St. Pierre will actually retire he was confident that it wasn’t the case:

“I don’t think he’s going to retire,” White said. “I do know that he wants some time off, which is an issue because he just had over a year off for his ACL surgery and recovery. So we’ll see. I’m supposed to talk to Georges St-Pierre on Thursday when he gets back from vacation.”
