According to the Journal de Montreal, UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre will convene a press conference this Friday with local media to make an announcement. The long-time champion made waves when he announced that he was stepping away from MMA after being awarded a controversial split decision win over Johny Hendricks in their UFC 167 main event bout last month.

Since that time, St. Pierre's coaches, mentor, teammates, rivals and bosses have all speculated as to whether the 32 year old will indeed retire, take a leave of absence or immediately get back into action. The fighter himself, however, has been mostly silent.

That should change at Friday's press conference. What do you think St. Pierre will announce? Let us know in the comments section.
