Matt Hughes Says He Would Be Surprised If GSP Returns

Forty year old, former welterweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer. Matt Hughes spoke out about Georges St-Pierre recent comments against the UFC and at who he is taking for the UFC 171 welterweight title fight between Johny Hendricks – Robbie Lawler. Check it out below:

On Georges St-Pierre recent comments: “No, it didn’t surprise me a whole lot. People have been catching Georges a little bit, and I’m talking the past three or four years. 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.”

UFC 171 and who he is taking between Johny Hendricks – Robbie Lawler:
“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.”
