GSP explains why he may not return to the UFC's middleweight division – UFC News

Yesterday evening, the new 185lbs champion cast major doubt over his future in the weight class in an interview with TSN’s Kara Wagland. 

“We’ll talk about it, but I’m not sure if I compete I will go back at 185,”

“I don’t think so.”

The Canadian’s comments have seemingly ruined the UFC’s plans for him defend the middleweight crown against interim 185lbs champion Robert Whittaker at UFC 221 in February. 

St-Pierre’s reluctance to compete at 185lbs stems from his current bout of Colitis, which could be connected to the dietary changes he had to make in order to compete at middleweight. 

The former two-time welterweight champion wants to defend his title but is reluctant to put his body through another gruelling bulk. 

“Of course, in terms of weight, if I want to go back to compete at 185, I will – obviously eating, like I did what I did, I learned from my mistakes, I don’t think it’s a good thing to do, force myself to eat to gain muscle mass,” St-Pierre told TSN.

“I’ve always been against performance-enhancing drugs, and I did it the natural way. There is no easy way.

“I did it the hard way and it was to gain weight and to maintain my muscles mass and it was very hard and it was not healthy. 

“I think the body has a natural weight it can perform at its best athletic ability and for me, the weight that I am now is my perfect weight.”

Should St-Pierre vacate the 185lbs title, he will greatly annoy UFC president Dana White.

When asked last week how he’d react if St-Pierre told him he wanted to return to the welterweight division, White said: “I’m going to be super p****d and I don’t know where we go from there.”
