Following the controversial ending of Georges St-Pierre vs Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, Dana White had some harsh words for the current champ.
Those slightly belligerent comments were offset though by the GSP’s mentor Kristof Midoux, who told reporters that White had called the champ to apologize the next day. According to Midoux, White admitted that after watching the fight again, he agreed with the judges’ decision.
In a strange twist though, White is now denying that such a phone call ever took place.
“I had heard that, but no, that’s not true,” White told MMAJunkie.com. “I have not watched the fight yet. I still haven’t watched the fight. This (Midoux) guy’s like one of the new Kardashian sisters. This guy pops up out of nowhere, and now he’s everywhere.”
White also elaborated on his previous statement that GSP is obligated to return and defend his title.
“Realistically, I’m not forcing Georges to do anything, but Georges has to defend his title,” he said. “He was off for over a year already with ACL surgery. So if people have problems with it, I could (not) give a s*** if they like it or don’t. I don’t care what peoples’ opinions of that are.”
