Georges St. Pierre is a free agent, so says his lawyer. GSP was on a radio show (Helwani’s, I think) and said that his lawyer had created a deadline for a new contract to be worked out between St. Pierre and the UFC. Said deadline has passed and with no new contract, the former UFC Welterweight Champion claims he’s a free agent.
