GSP injured, but won't 'freeze division'

Georges St Pierre Michael Bisping

"When I left the sport more than four years ago, I was in a bad place mentally".

One of the hottest topics in the UFC is newly-crowned middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre's next fight following his title-sealing submission win over Michael Bisping in the main event of last weekend's (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) UFC 217 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. It was St-Pierre's first bout in four years.

New UFC middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre has hesitantly confirmed he will face Australian Robert Whittaker in his next venture inside the Octagon.

"Unfortunately it sounds like we have a hold up and it's gonna take some time to iron out what's next". If you look at my fight, maybe I was smaller, but I was faster, I felt more athletic.

"I think it's ridiculous if they were to let him hold onto it and not pull that. I can not, for example, go fight (welterweight champ) Tyron Woodley or go fight another guy".

"They need to just put the best against the best in each division and stop jumping around".

He believes that it "probably interferes with productivity in weird ways" and had some even more risky assertions about it. He also told them at the time, "We'll [Facebook] get you eventually".

"I don't know. I don't know yet". Obviously, he sees GSP and he wants his payday but is he gonna get that? I'm ready to move forward with the division and get things going.

"There's going to be news about it in the next few weeks, but I don't plan to hold the title and not defend it". GSP needs to figure it out. It is written in St-Pierre's contract that he must face Whittaker, though the organization may go a different direction. Bisping was injured at the time. So I'll be ready to go to Perth, it's just a matter of how this whole thing plays out. If I want to fight again, it has to be against Robert Whittaker at 185 [pounds]. After the fight when I cooled down, it was bad. They made a lot of money, and it was good for me as well.

"If he's gonna go fight again, there's no one else he should fight". Is it possible that he might simply decide to walk away, making his contractual obligation a moot point? It's me and him, that's what it should be. "I'm gonna go on vacation next week (then talk to the UFC)". That's not what I want to do.

GSP mostly avoided major injuries during his first stint in the UFC, but his body has taken some knocks since he returned to the company. We'll see what happens.

Whittaker himself has been out of action since defeating Yoel Romero for the interim middleweight title in July. Let's have this discussion in the comment section.
