Former division champion of the welterweight division in the UFC George Saint Pierre, recently gave up his champion title, despite all the agreements and contracts with the promotion.
After his brilliant victory over Michael Bisping, the doctors diagnosed him with an ulcer that had to be treated urgently.
According to the Canadian, this was due to his excessive nutrition and stress after switching to another weight category.
Now the fighter feels much better and even thinks about returning to the octagon.
“I did not want to see the whole division depend on me, I could postpone the fight and get good at the title, but I understand that there are many worthy fighters who will be able to compete for it. I definitely go down to another weight category, where I will be comfortable. As for my future, I will return and hold another fight, “Georges said.
The next possible opponent of St. Pierre could be Robert Whittaker, to compete for the middleweight division champion title.
