Since UFC 167, news about Georges St-Pierre has been going crazy. Whether it's people discussing the controversial fight, St-Pierre's after fight comments, Dana White's subsequent comments, or the rumors floating around TMZ.
One issue that had been refuted by Shari Spencer, St-Pierre's ex-manager, may actually be an issue he is currently dealing with:
Shari Spencer, St-Pierre's former manager, has twice levied lawsuits against the fighter and his new representation after their falling out a few years ago. The first lawsuit, which was eventually voluntarily dismissed, pitted Spencer against St-Pierre's current manager Rodolphe Beaulieu, as well as trainers John Danaher and Firas Zahabi and a fourth man named Phillippe Lepage for intentional misconduct regarding interference with contract rights.
The second lawsuit filed by Spencer in Clark County, Nevada sued for losses she sustained after her partnership with St-Pierre was dissolved. Spencer was with St-Pierre when he signed many of his largest endorsement deals to date including Gatorade, Under Armour and Mission Skincare. In the motion filed, Spencer went after her former client for proceeds she was entitled to as his manager during the time when those deals were done.
According to additional court documents revealed by TMZ on Tuesday, St-Pierre lost in civil court and was forced to cut a check to Spencer for $737,066.35, which he paid earlier this year.
In addition to that lump sum that St-Pierre paid, he's also on the line for several other notable payouts to Spencer including:
20-percent of future revenue on various UFC pay-per-view fights
20-percent of royalties earned under a 2008 UFC merchandising contract
5-percent of future revenues from sponsorships she apparently helped him earn including Affliction and RUSHfit, St-Pierre's signature workout line.
