Georges St-Pierre Vacates UFC Title, Robert Whittaker Crowned Undisputed Champion

Georges St-Pierre Vacates UFC Title, Robert Whittaker Crowned Undisputed Champion

Australia's Robert Whittaker is now the undisputed UFC middleweight champion with Georges St-Pierre vacating the title after recently being diagnosed with colitis.

The Canadian wound up winning the fight after hitting Bisping with a hellacious hook that dropped the Englishman, before subsequently locking in a rear-naked choke that would render Bisping unconscious.

Prior to UFC 217, St. Pierre, a man many consider to be the very best welterweight of all-time, hadn't competed since UFC 167 in 2013, electing to go on a four-year hiatus after scoring a highly controversial split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks.

Last week, White told reporters he'd be "super pissed" if GSP doesn't defend the strap.

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.

"We'll talk about it, but I'm not sure if I compete I will go back at 185", St-Pierre said. "I don't think so".

As this is being written, the bout hasn't been announced yet, but it looks like Robert Whittaker and Luke Rockhold will be fighting at UFC 221, February 10th. "When you're on top, everybody want to have what you got and it's not new for me, I'm used to that kind of stuff, I don't take it personal".

"My fight at UFC 217 was one of the greatest nights of my life", he said. "I don't think it's a good thing to do, to force myself to eat to gain muscle mass". I've always been against performance-enhancing drugs and I did the natural way. There's no easy way. I was too small to fight at this weight but now I've put on muscle mass and I am comfortable here.

Given the nature of St-Pierre's health, it's unclear if he will wind up returning at 170 pounds - a weight that may prove more suitable for a fighter with an intestinal disease. This strongly supports St-Pierre's claims that he isn't a natural middleweight.
