    Midoux certainly is doing alot of talking while GSP is vacationing in paradise.

    And now we'll get a quote from DW saying he never offered any sort of apology.

    Dana White apologized to Georges St-Pierre for UFC 167 outburst says trainer
    St-Pierre's trainer, Kristof Midoux, spoke with the Quebec Journal and stated that not only did White reach out to St-Pierre to offer an apology for the statements made in the post-fight press conference, but also to say that after rewatching the bout, he now believes that St-Pierre was rightfully given the decision.

    "Few people know it, but the next morning he (White) called George and told him, 'I'm sorry, I watched the fight again and you have indeed won. I spoke under the influence of emotion.'"

    However, for Midoux, a private apology isn't enough. In his mind, the only way to really to put the bad feelings aside would be for White to publicly apologize to St-Pierre as well as test Johny Hendricks for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs).

    "If I were him, I would ask for a public apology from White, who should say to the media that George has really won the fight. Second, I would tell him to send people to test whether Hendricks is natural or not. At this point, it would show me that he is a good boss and he does things as they should be done. "

    The Return Of......
    Here is the thing. GSP didn't retire. He said he is going away for a little bit. Rogan even asked him if he was retiring and GSP I believe so no, Or at least did not answer the question.

    So, with that being said I can see Dana's reaction. The whole thing was very strange and something just isn't right. Who knows what it is, but I bet had Dana not said what he said most people would have the same kind of reaction.

    Well you can toss that out the window.

    This sounds like many fighters' post fight interviews in these situations.

    Just watching how Georges handles himself over the years, even if they did have a problem, I doubt he would really speak up about it.

    I do agree with Dana from the perspective that a line of challengers always exists for the belt and your champ can't decided to go on hiatus. If GSP needs some time off, more power to him. He should step away from the belt at the same time though.

    Like most cases, I think Dana was totally wrong in his approach. These guys aren't playing baseball. If a fighter needs time away, there is no way you should be pushing him to fight. You shouldn't be dragging him through the public eye in that fashion either, trying to guilt him into a big $ rematch.

    It's almost as if Dana doesn't realize that this guy just got his brains beat in then somebody stuck a mic in his face. How the hell can you fault the guy for not having a coherent though. They shouldn't let guys who got KO'd or took a lot of damage sit there through the post-fight press conference either.
