Dana White: GSP Owes Rematch To Fans, Company, And Hendricks

72

Following the UFC 167 main event, UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre announced that he needed to take some time away from the sport. Not pleased with this decision, UFC President Dana White trashed St. Pierre’s decision at the post fight press conference.

When asked about St. Pierre’s possible retirement, White offered the following:

“Did he say he wants to retire? He didn’t say, ‘I’m going to retire, I’m hanging it up, it’s been great everybody, thanks a lot for all the years, see you later.’ He said I’m going to take some time off. First of all, that decision that happens, you don’t just say, hey, I’m going to take a while off, maybe I’ll be back or maybe I won’t. You owe it to the fans, you owe it to that belt, you owe it to this company and you owe it to Johny Hendricks to give him that opportunity to fight again.”

What do you think? Should the long reigning Champion be entitled to his time away, or is Dana White right in his assessment?
