Georges St Pierre, post bagging the title of welterweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship 79 has with much success had defended the belt, which he finally had to surrender in December. The current owner of the belt is Johny Hendricks, and the Canadian national mixed martial expert doesn’t have any issues whatsoever with that and gladly says that Hendricks can very well keep the title.
It seems that St Pierre isn’t feeling at all resentful or bitter with Hendricks winning the title at UFC 171. While talking to a popular television channel he commented that it was completely his take to give the title away. Nobody had forced him to fight, and pretty similarly no one forced him to halt as well. In fact, St Pierre seems quite happy that Johny Hendricks bagged the title and thinks that is was a fair game.
When asked about a rematch session between Hendricks and him, St Pierre replied that what future hold for him in UFC is quite unknown still, until and unless his demands have been met pertaining to drugs testing in sports.
He added that if at all he makes a comeback, then he has to alter certain things about how the fight should be conducted. He clarified further that he has no problem with UFC, just that he wanted to take the sport to a new level.
Georges St Pierre also talked about the fact that he had spoken to Dana White, the UFC President and Lorenzo Fertitta the CEO about drug testing during UFC 167 and they had no reasons to be surprised about this issue.
Although St Pierre commended Hendricks on winning the title, however he further added that the latter should stick around a little bit longer and only the future will tell if things will change or not and the two might face off again.
