White plans to give GSP his space, for now

 

St-Pierre shocked the MMA world by announcing a hiatus from the sport in a media conference call last week. He did however leave the door open for a return, but UFC President Dana White revealed that he intends to give St-Pierre his space and wait for him to come looking for a fight:

With the UFC’s biggest pay-per-view star taking an indefinite break from the sport, the organization would understandably be tempted to pester him for a return date. UFC President Dana White, though, said he plans to give Georges St-Pierre plenty of space.

“I’ll leave him alone,” White said this past weekend (watch the full post-UFC on FOX 9 media scrum above). “I’ll leave him alone and let him do his thing.

“When a guy gets done fighting, I don’t bother the guys until it’s time to fight again. Let them go, let them disappear and do their thing. Then we contact them when it’s time to fight again.”

You're having trouble grasping White's sense of logic because your first quote is a misquote of what he said above. “When a guy gets done fighting, I don’t bother the guys until it’s time to fight again. Let them go, let them disappear and do their thing. Then we contact them when it’s time to fight again.”Seems pretty obvious that he means they whenever fighters get done with a fight they give the fighters space until time starts to roll around to set up another fight at which point they contact the fighters to set it up. You can't take it so literally. Obvoiusly there are going to be some exceptions there.If we overanalyzed every word everyone said we could find holes in the literal logic and something wrong with it if that's what we want to find.

You don't think that is what he meant?  Which one sentence didn't he mean? “When a guy gets done fighting, I don’t bother the guys until it’s time to fight again." or " Let them go, let them disappear and do their thing. Then we contact them when it’s time to fight again.” In both instances he says he will determine when it is time to fight again, not the fighter.  An offer is a request.

I am trying to grasp White's sense of logic: "We don't bother a guy if he doesn't want to fight again". "We will call him when it is time to fight again". Huh???

Gotta play the game.  Cuz.   What are you going to do?   What are you going to do?   November 20, 2013 Life is about keeping perspective. For instance, when you’re using a monopoly to crush new promotions, forcing your employees into lopsided contracts, and paying desperate young men an unlivable wage to hurt each other on live television, saying “fuck” a lot seems pretty insignificant. I once did ten pull-ups with nearly perfect form. #selfie #selfies #selfiesbycelebrities #danawhite #keepingperspective #aggressivemonopoly #lopsidedcontracts #fivethousanddollarstowin #cussingnotsobad
