White: St-Pierre/Hendricks rematch 'on track'

by Chris Palmquist |
 

Today in a story realeased by the LA Times, UFC President Dana White expressed that he was confident that a rematch with Johny Hendricks would be the next fight for Georges St-Pierre and that St-Pierre is actually not taking time to step away from MMA:

“As far as a rematch, we’re on schedule and I’ll have a date within a couple weeks,” White said. “I feel confident that Georges is fine with that and all is on track.”

It is unsure at this time the exact time-frame for the rematch, but it is likely that White and St-Pierre will meet in the next several weeks and figure it out.

In the heat of the moment following his UFC 167 bout, St-Pierre stated that he had personal issues that would need him to step away from MMA for a while. Which of course got Dana White fired up, and the  media would attack him for statements he made about St-Pierre's situation. However, his statements were mostly misconstrued, and looks as though everything with St-Pierre has been worked out.

Regardless of St-Pierre's situation, Johny Hendricks himself earned a lengthy six month medical suspension following their bout, but could be cleared by an orthopedist earlier with a clean report of his right knee. St-Pierre only received a 45 day suspension.

Either way, it looks like this rematch will happen and will likely be one of the most anticipated bouts of 2014.

Meh. "on track" does that even mean anything? Who knows. Dana's said many things with more detailed langauge than this that never came to pass. AFAIK on track means that both GSP and Hendricks are still alive so the possibility of a rematch technically exists.

I love how Dana shits all over his champion and then bullies him into an instant rematch. Fuck this jabronie.

def sounds fishy.but ultimately gsp is a man and the decision is his. no one can make him fight if he doesn't want to...he probably got bribed,but he did not have to except.

This is coming from the guy that announced the Gus/nog fight without having spoken to one of the fighters. Seems legit.

No, GSP needs to apologize to each and every fan personally, by FAX, twitter, and email, for the sin of being mortal, finite, and vulnerable. I think I speak for everyone on the UG when I say we're SICK of athletes not having endless careers, not fighting 4 times a year, for daring to age and to have interesting lives outside of their UFC careers. I hope GSP and every other fighter rots in hell for not entertaining us to our precise specifications time and time again. So SICK of this shit.
