Dana: "No, I didn't apologize to GSP"

Dana:
December 2nd 2013

Dana White wants an end to rumors that he apologized to Georges St Pierre following his UFC 167 post-fight press conference outbursts.

St Pierre’s friend and team mate Kristof Midoux told a Montral newspaper some days ago that White had re-watched the fight and called St Pierre to apologize for his comments, with St Pierre telling White “Don’t worry about it.”

At the weekend’s TUF Finale event he spoke to MMA Junkie's John Morgan and made clear he hasn’t apologized to anyone.

“I had heard that, but no, that’s not true. I have not watched the fight yet. I still haven’t watched the fight. This (Midoux) guy’s like one of the new Kardashian sisters. This guy pops up out of nowhere, and now he’s everywhere,” White said.

“Realistically, I’m not forcing Georges to do anything, but Georges has to defend his title. He was off for over a year already with ACL surgery. So if people have problems with it, I could [not] give a s–- if they like it or don’t. I don’t care what peoples’ opinions of that are.”

Midoux has been a part of St Pierre’s team since St Pierre was 16 years old and an aspiring MMA fighter. He has served as a trainer, corner man and mentor for much of St Pierre’s career, although there was a hiatus in the middle.

Midoux made his return to St Pierre’s corner at UFC 154, the fight against Carlos Condit. If White claims never to have noticed Midoux before, he will certainly know who he is now. Among other comments, Midoux branded White “a buffoon without respect” in the Montreal press.

    Dana White is the biggest asshole in the history of MMA! I can't stand him anymore, Lorenzo fire that idiot PLEASE! What Georges St-Pierre should do is demand a public apology from Dana, and if Dana refuses then GSP leaves! For the record I thought that GSP won at 167, 3 rounds to 2. www.Facebook.com/RyanVincentCampbell add me.

    Frank, I don't agree with anything you just said. I thought GSP won it 3 rounds to 2 also, and I am not a GSP fan. Dana's role should be completely unbiased and unopinionated. If he believed Hendrix won, he should've said so in private to GSP or Hendrix, not publicly in what was a "a toy out of the pram" moment.
