Georges St-Pierre’s departure from the UFC may have been less amicable than it previously appeared.
After his controversial victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, GSP says that UFC staff took his championship belt while he was in the shower.
“I was taking a shower after the fight, ” St-Pierre said on the French-Canadian TV show Infoman. “And I was suiting up, with my tie, and afterwards they came to get the belt, and they left with it without even telling me.”
“I have belts,” he added. “I have belts from my previous fights. But not the one from the last fight, unfortunately.”
When you add how Dana White was badmouthing the decision at the post-event press conference, it would make sense that GSP is not very happy about the situation.
However, this story doesn’t completely make sense. The championship belt was present with GSP at the press conference, so if he doesn’t have it now, something is missing from the story.
In any case, just the fact that GSP is coming out with this report seems to indicate that he’s not very happy with the way the UFC treated him. Perhaps his temporary retirement may end up being more permanent than we had anticipated.
