St. Pierre To Retire If He Loses ANY Fight In The Future

UFC legend Georges St. Pierre will call it quits once he loses one fight during his comeback. So it may very well be one and done for GSP on his comeback tour. It also might not be. One thing is for certain though – he will fight and it will very likely be in November at Madison Square Garden in New York. Whether or not it will be Michael Bisping is another uncertainty. GSP lost his chance to fight Bisping right away recently when UFC President Dana White cancelled the fight after St. Pierre announced he would not be ready to fight until November.
 
In the interim, Bisping will fight another contender for his defense of his UFC Middleweight Championship at UFC 213 in Vegas. One could reason that if Bisping successfully defends his title in July his next fight very well could be GSP in November. Either way, GSP is all in on winning his next fight no matter who it’s against. He said he made the preemptive decision to go back into retirement if he loses just one fight because he always fights his absolute best when his back is against the wall.
 
He also added that he’s in the best shape of his life right now which he attributes to a very special diet, something he hasn’t done before. That being said, the hold up with the potential July date with Bisping was that although he considers himself in the best shape he’s ever been, he’s not in shape to fight Bisping AKA he’s fifteen pounds too heavy and he openly admitted he will need more time to cut that weight before meeting the UFC Middleweight Champ in the Octagon. Will this be it for Georges St. Pierre or will he reign over the UFC again? No ones really too sure, we just know that we will have to wait until at least November to see.
 

UFC 208’s Biggest Storyline

This is not a widely anticipated UFC card to say the least. No McGregor, No Rousey (Likely ever again), No Jones, and not much potential for a future superstar to be born. That being said, the card has a lot of potential, especially in terms of what the results of this card could set up for future cards.
 
One thing that the main event is likely defining is a future opponent for Cyborg. Now that Amanda Nunes is the clear woman to beat, not only in the bantam weight division, but in the UFC overall, Cyborg (also a featherweight) will likely be looking to build collateral for a shot to drop a class to fight Nunes for the title. The problem is that Cyborg is facing a year ban for testing positive for a banned substance BUT it has come out in the past two days that she is very likely NOT getting suspended. So, the featherweight battle & main event between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie will likely define who fights Cyborg in a few months which will be for a chance to drop down and fight Nunes.
 

Cerrone VS Gastelum: A Big Fight In The Big Apple

UFC 205 in New York is finally starting to shape up. One notable fight on the card will now be Donald Cerrone versus Kelvin Gastelum. The fight will take place at the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, in New York but most importantly it will be the first ever UFC event held in New York. The fight itself was originally supposed to feature Robbie Lawler but after Lawler pulled out it will now feature Kevin Gastelum instead.
 
He will meet a very tough opponent in Cerrone who is enjoying being in the middle of a hot streak. He has earned consecutive wins against Alex Oliveira, Patrick Cote and Rick Story after moving up to welterweight earlier in the year. Gastelum is no scrub himself coming off a massive victory against Johny Hendricks at UFC 200. It is safe to say this will easily be the biggest bout for each fighter to date.
 
The fight itself will be widely watched and anticipated as it is expected to tell the world a lot about the future of the welterweight division. This is the third bout for UFC 205 to be announced so far after Evans VS Kennedy and Alves VS Iaquinta. More fights are expected to be announced soon.
