GSP, long-time manager Shari Spencer split ways

by Ariel Helwani | source:

According to a press release, "They felt they had a different vision for the future of Georges' career and it was best to remain close personally but dissolve their business relationship."

St-Pierre signed with Spencer in 2007 and has since become one of the most recognizable MMA athletes in the world, signing endorsement deals with blue-chip sponsors Gatorade Canada and Under Armour.

"Shari has been very valuable to me and my career over the last several years. We broke through a lot of barriers together and so I will always be grateful to her and call her my friend," St-Pierre stated.

Spencer, who also represents UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, is one of the few female managers in MMA. She runs her own boutique management group, The Spencer Firm.

"I am extremely proud of the representation I provided to Georges and the incredible opportunity to have partnered with an athlete of his caliber. I am thankful for the trust that he displayed in me in managing his career since mid 2007 and I wish him the best going forward," she stated.

Shari Spencer fed GSP a LOT of cheesy, canned lines and constructed a very boring, corny persona for him. On the other hand, she marketed him through the stratosphere and made him a mega-star with the calendars, Rushfit, New York/Philippines media tours etc.My guess is he either wants an even bigger management or he's tired of all the Hollywood shit and wants a heavier emphasis on his training.

Did GSP split with Jon Chaimberg his S&C? Is John Danaher the root for all these changes? WTF...somebody has to have some legit info on all this.

drew rosenhaus! it would be gold to see him just repeat "next question" over and over during GSP press conferences.
