December 13th, 2013 By Pedro FernandezST. PIERRE SMARTER THAN AVERAGE FIGHTER?
San Francisco, CA- Rarely does a fighter, be it boxing or MMA, walk away at the right time. With longtime UFC welterweight (170 lb.) champ Georges St. Pierre vacating his UFC welterweight (170 lb.), this after the controversial win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 last month, St. Pierre is either going to take an extended leave from the UFC, or he’s done!
DANA WHITE SET STAGE FOR ST. PIERRE MOVE?
A lot of people, most importantly UFC czar & President Dana White thought St. Pierre, one of the UFC’s biggest stars had lost. Dana said after St. Pierre walked away with his title in hand that, “I thought GSP only won one round.” The now 32-year old Cannuck St. Pierre is a man with an incredible amount of pride. After taking a rap from Dana after the Split Decision win, he probably just said, “Screw this.”
AGAIN, ST. PIERRE NOT SURE IF HE’LL FIGHT AGAIN
With a record of 25-2 and both losses against Matt Hughes and Matt Serra having been avenged, there is nothing really left for the 11 year MMA superstar except defeat brought about by age and injuries. He said in a statement Friday that, “There’s too much weight on my shoulders.”
