Georges St-Pierre: I Don't Think I'll Return to Middleweight

Georges St-Pierre: I Don't Think I'll Return to Middleweight”

Those anxious Georges St-Pierre would never defend the UFC middleweight title may have had their fears realized. According to his coaches, St-Pierre was throwing up on a daily basis and nearly ended up having to pull out of the fight.

"I'm not sure if I will compete if I will go back to 185", St-Pierre said in an interview. The Canadian superstar maintained his contract required him to defend the championship if he won, leaving him little wiggle room to avoid a second fight at 185 pounds.

"Of course, in terms of weight, if I want to go back to compete at 185, I will".

News that St-Pierre may not be returning to middleweight will send shockwaves through the division after he insisted that he would defend the belt after his win at UFC 217 in November. "I don't think so". "I think the body has a natural weight it can perform at its best athletic ability, and for me, the weight that I am now is my flawless weight". It was not healthy.

Interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker has been recovering from a knee injury and was hoping to get his shot at the full time belt after beating Yoel Romero in July.

"I think the body has a natural weight it can perform at its best athletic ability and for me, the weight that I am now is my flawless weight".

However, speaking to TSN, St-Pierre has now announced what every fan expected to hear in declaring that he likely never fight again in the middleweight division.

The latest comments from GSP - who has revealed that he is now suffering from colitis, an inflammation of the colon which causes abdominal pain, cramps and diarrhoea - are likely to anger UFC president Dana White.
