    Dana White: 'Crazy' Georges St-Pierre is 'way out of line' with UFC criticism
    The UFC president broke it down during a recent appearance on The Dan Le Batard Show:

    "Georges is a little upset with me. Georges is upset with me because I said I thought Johny Hendricks won the fight. Let me tell you what. Who has said more nice things bout Georges St-Pierre over the last 10 years than me? Nobody, his parents don't talk about him as good as I do. So, the one time I don't think he won the fight, I'm always very honest in my opinions and what I think, and he's upset about it. But, at the end of the day, he should have picked up the phone and made a phone call. To say that we're not, first of all, Georges St-Pierre wanted to do the extra drug testing because other fighters have accused him of being on performance enhancing drugs. For the record, he's never tested positive for anything, ever. And, the guy has defended the title nine times. He wanted to do the extra testing in the Hendricks fight to prove to the other fighters he's not (on drugs). So he said, 'let's have Johny do it, too.' They both wanted to use separate companies, just like boxing, and that's never going to work out. Then he criticized us for not making it happen. They're being drug tested by the government. The government is in there testing them. We have the most stringent drug testing not only us us, but boxing, too. So his statements were crazy. Makes no sense, he's just upset at me. He's upset with me, so why he'd make those statements I don't know. I'm assuming that's why, so, he's crazy. He's way out of line there."

    The more comments Dana makes like these, claiming to be a better "praise-er" than GSP's parents, the less likely I see GSP coming to the UFC to ever fight again.

    LIke I said before in the other thread, if Dana is constantly making these tasteless remarks towards GSP and Lorenzo isn't stepping in to shut up him up, it makes one question whether Lorenzo is alright with the angle Dana is playing?

    If GSP ever wants to fight again I highly doult with the UFC contract he'll ever get the chance. Question since GSP didn't lose the title and automatic contract extenssions clause would he ever not be under contract?

    Lorenzo seems to be ok with the heavy handed way Dana runs things... and it may work to an extent behind the scenes, but you'd think he'd realize by now that the public reception to Dana is not positive.

    I think they would have an out only if the UFC were to officially declare someone else the champ and not just interim champ. Similar to what they just did with Cruz and Barao.

    That might leave some room for him to escape that clause but it would still end up in the courts I'm sure.

    UFC's Tom Wright: We want GSP back, but we'll move on
    "You know what, I'm a huge Georges St-Pierre fan," said Wright. "I think all Canadians are. We're really looking forward to actually seeing him back. I think he will come back. He may even come back in 2014, but who knows? But one of the reasons we're having this press conference and talking about the different things that we're doing, is because we will continue to move on.

    "We've got some great fighters in our country. TJ Grant, we've Sam Stout, we've got these women I've been speaking (about), Mitch Clark is an up and comer... TUF nations we just finished up episode 2..."

    "So there's a lot of exciting things that we're doing to make sure the sport continues to grow, that our athletes continue to develop and while we'd love to see Georges back, and at some point we will, we'll move on."

    Tyron Woodley says GSP stepping away didn't 'open up' the division because it wasn't closed

    "The most stringent drug testing" what a laugh.

    I have found that people throw out the "crazy" card when they have no solid argument to back up their side.
