UFC Boss: GSP Wanted To Disappear, Now He Won’t Go Away

In a surprising turn of events, former UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, is quickly becoming enemy number 1 for the UFC.

Following his exodus from the sport, the UFC, and it’s executives, promised to give their top drawing fighter his space to work out his ‘personal issues’.

But now that space is growing larger and larger.

The former welterweight champion has cited several issues with his former employer. From calling the UFC a monopoly that’s bad for the sport, to saying that he left the game because the UFC doesn’t have a strict enough anti-doping policy, GSP is letting his mouth talk the talk, while he walks the walk on the sidelines.

In response, Dana White went off last night at the UFC Fight Night 35 post-fight presser, and during his rant he said the following:

“Georges St-Pierre never said he wanted to go away, he said he needed some time off because he had all these personal issues going on in his life and he needed some time off. So not only did we… We said do your thing… Vacates the title… We’re not even… We left the guy alone. We are not asking him to do anything. We haven’t… We’re letting him do his thing. Guy’s out doing more interviews now then he did when he was fighting. Said he wanted to disappear for a while and go away. Well here we are. Now we are talking about Georges St-Pierre. Trying to get him on the phone. Trying to you know… It’s so weird.”
