UFC Middleweight champion and MMA legend Georges St. Pierre signed a contract upon his return to the sport to face Michael Bisping for the title and then face Robert Whittaker afterwards to unify the belts. But MMA fans and media alike don’t believe that this will happen. Earlier this week he announced that he is sick with “Colitis” a form of IBS and in turn the UFC has booked Luke Rockhold to face Whittaker for the interim title. Meanwhile GSP did a new interview and dropped a bombshell on the sport. Check it out.
“We’ll have to talk about it, but I’m not sure if I compete, if I will go back at 185-pounds. I don’t think so. Of course in terms of weight, If I want to go back to compete at 185-pounds I will. Obviously eating — I did what I did, I learned from my mistakes — I don’t think it’s a good thing to do. Force myself to eat to gain muscle mass. I’ve always been against performance enhancing drugs and I [moved up to another weight division] the natural way. There is no easy way. I did it the hard way and it was to gain weight and maintain my muscle mass. It was very hard and it was not healthy. I think the body has a natural weight where you can perform and its best athletic ability and for me, the weight I am now is my perfect weight.” — Georges St-Pierre speaking to TSN.
