Bjorn Rebney Says UFC's Comments About Georges St-Pierre Were Tasteless
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.20.2014



MMA Junkie reports that during a teleconference to promote season 10's light heavyweight tournament, Bellator MMA CEO Bjorn Rebney said that Dana White's comments about Georges St-Pierre were some of the most tasteless the UFC's made in some time. White told GSP to "be a man and pick up the phone" regarding GSP's comments that the UFC's stance on drug testing was part of the reason why he stepped away.

On White's comments: "The UFC set the bar pretty high in terms of tasteless comments, but their recent comments about GSP are probably, in my mind, the most tasteless comments they've made in sometime."

On GSP: I look at GSP as a guy who's one of the greatest, most honorable champions our sport has ever seen, and in my opinion, I don't think GSP owes us, as fans, anything, and I don't think GSP owes the UFC anything. As we saw based on the fallout from the last fight, he's given us, as fans and for the organization that he fought for, he's given us everything. I think we should all be thankful we had the opportunity to watch a guy like that fight over the past 10 years."

On what GSP had to say about drug testing: "It's been our pleasure as MMA fans, and I think a lot of the issues he raises and points he makes are good points. He's been de-facto ambassador for our game and a spokesman for the sport at a very high level for a long time, and I put a lot of credence and credibility in what he's talking about."
