See what the former champion has to say…
- Georges St-Pierre recently spoke about a possible rematch with Johny Hendricks and more. Here are the highlights…
On Hendricks vs. Lawler at UFC 171: "I was just watching it as a fan and it was a lot of fun. Personally I scored the fight to Johny Hendricks. I believe he had rounds one, two and five. Most people I know, they think it was (Robbie) Lawler that won the fight. It was a very tight fight though, it could've gone either way. I think it came down to the first round," St-Pierre said of the fight. "I believe Lawler, the rounds that he won, it was more decisively, and he did more damage on the face, but sometimes that doesn't mean anything. Lawler had a lot of damage too, but you couldn't see the damage on the legs. Damage on the face sometimes is superficial, so that's one of the reasons I think Hendricks won the fight."
On His Break From MMA: "When I fought Carlos Condit, I was really hungry," he said. "When I fought (Nick) Diaz, I was not as much hungry. When I fought Hendricks, my training camp, I was even less hungry, and I felt like I needed to step out to get some time to see if I want to do this or not again. For now, I don't want to do it. I needed to step out and stay out of the radar. That's one of the things I said. I didn't know if it was going to be six months, a year, a year and a half, I don't know. But right now, I don't feel like coming back right now. It's not right for me."
On a Rematch With Hendricks: "Listen, stick around for a bit and keep the title," St-Pierre replied. "We'll see what's going to happen in the sport. If some things change, maybe we'll get together again."
