UFC president Dana White was adamant still days after the fact in stating there will be a rematch between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks.
St-Pierre earned a controversial split decision victory over Hendricks, and promptly surprised everybody – White included – when he stated his desire to walk away from MMA for a while.
After having a few days to reflect, White told “UFC Tonight” that GSP will fight again; and it will be against Hendricks.
“Yes, there will be a rematch,” White said. “Georges St-Pierre did not retire on Saturday night.”
On his Twitter page, GSP posted a photo with the caption “Johny and I gave you the Fight of the Night- hope you enjoyed it! Forget all the rumors- on vacation, happy & well” earlier Wednesday.
But let’s not forget the Nick Diaz drama when GSP stated he doesn’t even manage his own twitter. So there may be more to this. You just never know.
