UFC NEWS – “I’m in a downfall in my life but I will be champion again, I promise”, says GSP


“A few months ago I was on top of the world and I’m now I’m in a downfall. But you recognize a champion from how he comes back from things that don’t go well. Everybody that says bad things and says bad stuff about me right now, mark my words. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m in a downfall in my life, but in a few months, I’ll be back stronger than ever, and I will be champion again. I promise… I believe there is only one person to blame for what happened and it’s myself. I’m the kind of guy, I endure pain and go through it. I learned a big lesson in my life. It’s going to make me stronger, smarter and more clever… Some people will say bad stuff about me, that ‘he’s finished,’ and stuff like that. What I’m going to tell you is t’s very easy to hit a guy when he’s down. We have a saying in France, ‘The life goes up and down.’ People will laugh because I’m in a downfall, I’m hurt, I’m not a threat to them. But I’ll be back on top, mark my words.”

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St Pierre, is obviously down in the dumps after being forced to withdraw from the UFC 143 main event where he was supposed to defend his title against number one contender Nick Diaz.

For a fighter who has had such a strong run of success throughout his career and gone virtually uninjured with his seven day per week relentless training schedule, one has to wonder why now, all of a sudden, the Canadian based fighter has had such a run of bad luck in the gym.

Whatever it may be, let’s hope for a speedy recovery so the champ can bring some stability back to the division that he reigns over.
