Dana White 'Not Shocked' Georges St-Pierre 'Went Away Again'

Dana White 'Not Shocked' Georges St-Pierre 'Went Away Again'

Now in high altitude training, Whittaker had a succinct reaction to news of his elevation in status and confirmation of his next fight. He came out, he hand-picked [Michael] Bisping and went away again.

The 33-year-old Californian's last visit to Australia resulted in a second round submission win over Bisping in Sydney in November 2014, though the Englishman avenged that loss last year.

'Listen, I had him sign a contract that said he would defend against Whittaker for a reason - because I knew he wouldn't'.

White previously revealed he deliberately wrote into GSP's fight contract that he had to defend the middleweight belt and would be "pissed" if the former welterweight champion did not defend his strap. "I will be giving up my belt and once I'm healthy I look forward to working with the UFC to determine what's next in my career". "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".

St-Pierre now holds several UFC records including most wins in UFC title fights (13), most wins by decision in UFC history (12), most takedowns in UFC history (90), most consecutive title defenses in the UFC welterweight division (9) and most successful title defenses in the UFC welterweight division (9) while also being tied with Bisping for most total wins. "Because I knew he wouldn't". So, it certainly doesn't seem like St-Pierre's planning to retire. "That's why he fought Bisping".

He added: 'He doesn't want to fight anybody at welterweight. "He didn't want to fight (Tyron) Woodley, he didn't want to fight (Stephen) 'Wonderboy" Thompson. He didn't want to fight any of those guys.

Leading up to St-Pierre's historic win over Michael Bisping last month, there's was seemingly endless speculation, as to whether he would remain at 185, after the card. He did, and now he's off again. I don't think it's a good thing to do, force myself to eat to gain muscle mass.
