Georges St-Pierre not sure if body can handle middleweight defense

Robert Whittaker becomes first Australian to hold UFC title

Robert Whittaker becomes first Australian to hold UFC title

Gastelum lost to Chris Weidman in July, but rebounded with a bit knockout of Bisping in the UFC Fight Night 122 headliner.

St-Pierre, who submitted Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC 217 to claim the middleweight championship in November, said on Wednesday he doesn't know if he will defend the title at all. Even with a clause written into his contract from the UFC that demanded he defend against interim champ Robert Whittaker, many expected him to win the belt and then drop it to return to the 170 pound weight class he spent his entire fighting career in.

Speaking with TSN in Canada today, "GSP" gave the strongest indication yet that he intends to give up the title and campaign south of 185lbs.

The fight with Bisping was St-Pierre's first fight in four years and it was his first ever bout at middleweight.

"We'll talk about it, but I'm not sure if I compete I will go back at 185. I don't think so", he said. I was too small to fight at this weight but now I've put on muscle mass and I am comfortable here. His team, however, have since suggested that this caused serious issues in the build-up, with the large quantities of food the fighter was ingesting causing him to vomit frequently. I've always been against performance-enhancing drugs, and I did it the natural way.

Trump: 'I feel very badly for General Flynn'
Yates added, however, that she told McGahn it was not her role to advise the White House what to do, whether or not to fire Flynn. Four Trump associates have been charged , but no count relates directly to the probe's original purpose.

"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 said. There's no easy way.

"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 flawless weight". "For me, the weight I have now is my flawless weight (via MMAJunkie)". According to his coaches, St-Pierre was throwing up on a daily basis and nearly ended up having to pull out of the fight.

During his camp, St-Pierre (26-2) mentioned that he often felt sick leading up to the bout by forcing himself to eat and regards that style as "not a healthy way of living".

It's going to be very interesting to see what happens with this situation going forward.
