Georges St. Pierre Might Not Return To Action In 2008

0

UFC Weltweweight Champion Georges St. Pierre tells RDS.ca (The French Canadian version of TSN.ca) that he may not return to action in 2008. Could this jeopardize a possible fight with BJ Penn in December? Time will tell.

“Several people mentioned that my next opponent should be BJ Penn. Nothing is obviously signed yet, but fighting him is my number one goal. I think he deserves a chance to challenge for my belt, but we’ll see what happens in the coming weeks. I hope deeply [that my next fight is in Montreal]. The President of the UFC, Dana White, said he would like to return to Montreal before the end of the year. For my part, I do not know if I will go back in the Octagon before 2009. I had four fights in the past 12 months. So I need rest. I like my life, but sometimes I have to relax…. I make so many sacrifices for me prepare. During training camps I can hardly live. Therefore, I need to refuel psychologically.”
