UFC middleweight champion Georges St. Pierre is keeping his promise and will return to the octagon this fall.

The 31-year-old mixed martial arts superstar told QMI Agency on Friday that his next fight could take place in Toronto, on Sept. 21, at UFC 165.

The likely opponent for St. Pierre (24-2-0) would be Texan Johny Hendricks (15-1-0), a rising star in MMA who's considered GSP's number one contender for the welterweight title.

Hendricks beat Carlos Condit on the St. Pierre/Diaz undercard and immediately said he wanted a piece of the Montreal champ.
