One MMA’s all-time greats Georges St-Pierre was last seen making some history inside the Octagon at UFC 217 when he beat Michael Bisping but he hasn’t been seen since and recently an Instagram pic uploaded by him and it looked like he is shrinking in weight.
So, in an interview to Sportsnet on Thursday, GSP addressed those rumors and said:
“For my fight with Michael Bisping, I was trying to put on weight but I did it the wrong way. I ate a crazy amount of food. I almost threw up sometimes…with the stress and everything it overused my digestive system. Although I was obsessed with trying to gain weight, I should not have done it.”
St-Pierre recently said he was interested in fighting the winner of the upcoming lightweight title bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.
However, GSP said that it was taken out of context and further explained.
“ I didn’t say i was going to do it. people headlined me the wrong way, to sell articles. that’s the society we live in.
dana white said i was done before my last fight with Michael Bisping. He does what he does best for his interests, and I do what’s best for mine.
I don’t want to sign a contract for a fight right now. I don’t want to say i’m going to commit to something. the minute i do it, the mental warfare starts.
I want to come back for a good fight. i want to come back for a fight that i can win, that i can gain something in terms of legacy. Not only money but in terms of legacy, because i have a lot more to lose than to win.”
