The fans of former Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will not be seeing their mixed martial artist (MMA) hero in the octagon ring this year. According to his manager Rodolphe Beaulieu, St-Pierre has no plans of coming back to the UFC for now.

"There is no plan for 2015," Beaulieu said in an email to MMA Junkie. "We are working on a few projects but nothing related for him coming back in the octagon." Beaulieu further stressed St-Pierre has no plans on stepping back in the UFC at the moment, especially in the welterweight division.

Since St-Pierre took an indefinite hiatus from the UFC, he has kept himself busy by working on several projects in Hollywood. St-Pierre caught a small role as "Batroc the Leaper" in the Marvel movie "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" that also featured a star-studded cast including Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Sebastian Stan. He is also slated to appear in the remake of "Kickboxer" alongside David Batista.

Aside from St-Pierre's few acting stints, he has also been busy with training. After recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which he also sustained during one of his workout sessions, he has resumed training and has not stopped since.

St-Pierre may be away from the spotlight but he continuously fills in his fans with what is going on in his life away from the octagon ring by sharing pictures on social media. On Jan. 16, St-Pierre shared a snap of him with his coach during a break in his wrestling practice.

Meanwhile, UFC President Dana White remains optimistic that St-Pierre would soon find his way back to the UFC. Speaking in his recent appearance on UFC on Fox, White expressed his optimism that St-Pierre will return to the octagon ring this year.

St-Pierre vacated the welterweight belt, which he has successfully defended on nine different occasions, and announced that he would be leaving the octagon ring for a while in December 2013. His announcement came not long after his controversial title defense victory against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167.
