Chris Weidman Not Confident Georges St-Pierre Defends the Middleweight Title

There is finally some movement going down in the middleweight division after being in a log jam.

Robert Whittaker was able to capture an interim UFC middleweight title. After that, Georges St-Pierre swooped in out of…

“YOU HAVE [GEORGES ST-PIERRE] POSSIBLY FIGHTING [ROBERT] WHITTAKER, BUT NO ONE REALLY BELIEVES THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN — EVEN THOUGH DANA WHITE IS SWEARING UP AND DOWN ABOUT IT. THERE’S JUST NO CERTAINTY ABOUT WHO’S GOING TO BE CHAMPION IN THE NEXT YEAR IN THE UFC. WHO AM I GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE BELT FROM? I GUARANTEE YOU IT’S NOT GONNA BE ‘GSP.’ [ST-PIERRE’S NEXT OPPONENT WILL BE TYRON WOODLEY] OR IF THEY REALLY SELL OUT, CONOR MCGREGOR. [ST-PIERRE] DOES FIND A WAY TO OUTSMART PEOPLE. I’LL NEVER UNDERESTIMATE ‘GSP.’ HE’S PROVED TIME AND TIME AGAIN HOW GOOD HE REALLY IS AND AS MUCH AS I MIGHT THINK, LOOKING HOW THE OTHER GUYS IN THE MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION ARE BIGGER AND STRONGER AND HAVE DIFFERENT THINGS THAN HIM, I WON’T UNDERESTIMATE ‘GSP.’ HE CAN DO IT ALL.”
