UFC Refutes Georges St-Pierre’s Claim He Is A Free Agent
Fox Sports – If Georges St-Pierre is a free agent that comes as news to the UFC.
St-Pierre announced on Monday that his attorney had terminated his contract with the UFC, which made him a free agent eligible to sign with any promotion interested in retaining his services.
The UFC answered back with a statement issued to FOX Sports refuting those claims and saying that St-Pierre remains under contract with the promotion.
“Georges St-Pierre remains under an existing agreement with Zuffa, LLC as his MMA promoter,” UFC officials said.
“Zuffa intends to honor its agreement with St-Pierre and reserves its rights under the law to have St-Pierre do the same.”
I knew this entire situation seemed weird. I found it astonishing the UFC would let one of their biggest stars and draws walk away without a fight (pun intended). Georges seems like one strange dude (that is magnified by his first name. There is no S at the end of George) and I am not sure if it is his team feeding him bad information or if he makes things up because the voices tell him to do so. Don’t worry, he is not schizophrenic but the other voice in his head is. I believe this will get resolved and we will see GSP back in the octagon soon or not at all. See, I can do it too.
