GSP Gets The Axe, Has Been Completely Removed From Official UFC Rankings

Postby 770 » Jan 31. 2018, 17:40

Up until yesterday, former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre was a top ranked UFC middleweight fighter.
The Canadian Mega-star found himself back inside the UFC’s official rankings system after her returned to action last November in the UFC 217 main event against Michael Bisping.
GSP was able to capture his second division world title with a third round submission victory over “The Count”, and as such was right back in the #1 slot in the official ranks.
GSP would later vacate the belt, and it looks like he may never return to action.
For whatever reason, now two-months later, GSP has been removed entirely from the middleweight rankings.
Here’s the update: (via UFC.com)

Being my favourite MMA fighter, this bums me out.

I'm a bit pissed at the deception created by his supposed return.

If this is a sign that he's not coming back, then " f**k you George!", Nick Diaz.

I feel for ya, bro. I know you've been one his staunchest fans on here :cry:
Maybe GSP had to do it this way because of prior dealings with the UFC?
If you think about it, you wouldn't apply for a job and at the interview say " I only want to work for you for 3 months because I just need some money to pay the bills". I get that part of it, but it's not what you'd call an every day type job. He is the product. His fans are the consumers, and if you f**k them over, it hurts what your selling, am I right? ;)

UFC just trying to build the drama for GSP's return fight....



Against Conor at 170lbs...



At the end of 2018 event. ..



Winner to fight Woodley in July 2019...



Woodley hurt his pinkie toenail in that chicken-shit performance against Maia last July and he prolly won't be ready until then (unless it's a money fight = toenails are a bitch & losing your title is scary)...

I think that would be hilarious if Conor and GSP fought at 170 while Woodley was champ. He would go ape shit calling everyone racist and they are ducking him and blah blah, truth is both of them don't wanna take a huge pay cut to fight someone no one wants to watch circle the ring for 5 rounds.
How taste my peepee.

Woodley just wants to be the best, man. The best champion, and you may not know this about him, but the best father and business man too. Now, if that means he has to break his own record for the least amount of strikes in a UFC fight, ever, then so be it.

Hardly surprising. It was obvious GSP thought he could beat Bisping, win the title of a second division and earn a massive payday all in one go.

It was also a given GSP would run back to Canada when he was asked to fight any of the remaining monsters at 185. Unlike Bisping, those guys are monsters who would maul him.

Its possible he fights Woodley, but man that would be a snoozefest. Woodley has transformed into GSP after winning the belt and refuses to do anything risky in a fight and prefers to bore his fans to death.
I definitely wouldn't watch GSP vs Woodley & I can only guess that the ratings for that fight wouldn't be high.

You would watch it twice; both times being naked while touching yourself with orange dusted, cheese Dorito fingers.
I would.
