UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre is set to take to the stage on Friday afternoon where he’ll announce his plans for the future. To give a quick recap, St-Pierre made some statements after his controversial win over Johny Hendricks regarding the need to take a significant chunk of time off to handle some personal business and even teased the possibility of retirement. UFC President Dana White has already expressed reservations about GSP’s plan, acting as though the period of action St-Pierre missed to recover from a torn ACL was a vacation of sorts. For starters, White needs to zip his lips. “Rush” worked his tail off in rehab and fought an absolute beast in Carlos Condit upon his return. St-Pierre reserves the right to get himself together before continuing his career, just as White can create an interim title on a whim if so desired. Personally, I would rather see a motivated, healthy St-Pierre than one who is burnt out. The world will found out more in a few days but, regardless of his decision, I’ll remain supportive of one of the classiest, most competent competitors to come along in UFC history.
