It doesn't seem like this will be a clean break.

In a statement sent out Monday, the UFC said the former welterweight champion remains under contract and implied there could be a legal battle in the near future.

"Georges St-Pierre remains under an existing agreement with Zuffa, LLC as his MMA promoter," the statement read. "Zuffa intends to honor its agreement with St-Pierre and reserves its rights under the law to have St-Pierre do the same."

Welp. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out. I wonder if Dana's still going to say GSP doesn't want to fight, smh.

I haven't read much about this but I'm assuming he is upset that he signed a contract before the Reebok deal. Now the UFC wants him to fight for the same coin?
