Dana White spoke at the UFC Fresno post fight press con about his views on George St Pierre vacating the middle weight belt that he had recently won by defeating Michael Bisping. Here’s what he said.
“I thought I would be super pissed, but I’m not. I expected it. Listen, I had him sign a contract that said he would defend against Whittaker for a reason — because I knew he wouldn’t.”
“At the end of the day, there’s a reason I put that stuff in the contract for him to sign. There’s a reason. And am I shocked? I don’t think anybody is shocked. He came out, he hand-picked Bisping and then went away again. So, whatever, it is what it is.”
“He doesn’t want to fight anybody at welterweight. That’s why he fought Bisping. He didn’t want to fight Tyron Woodley, he didn’t want to fight Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. He didn’t want to fight any of those guys. He wanted to fight Michael Bisping, and he did, and now he’s off again. So, listen, I’m not shocked, I’m not mad. It is what it is.”
