Matt Hughes: I don’t think GSP wants another beating from Hendricks

Friday, February 28, 2014

Former UFC welterweight champion, UFC Hall of Famer, and current UFC Vice President of Athletic Development and Government Relations Matt Hughes told Canada's SportsNet that he doesn't think former UFC welterweight champion and future Hall of Famer Georges St-Pierre will ever fight in the Octagon again.

“People have been catching Georges a little bit, and I'm talking the past three or four years,” said Hughes as transcribed by MMA Fighting. “People have been catching up to him, to his abilities. He's at the age where he's going to start slowing down just a little bit.

“Georges has made a lot of money. Gosh, what's he got to prove? What's he want to do? I wasn't real surprised. I would probably be a little more surprised if he ever came back. I don't think he wants to go in there and face Johny Hendricks again. Judging wise, it could have been close. Even though I did have Johny winning, the first round was extremely close. On the ground, Johny Hendricks won. He beat GSP up. In the rounds Georges won, he barely won. So I don't think he wants to go back in and take another beating like that against Johny Hendricks.”
