Will he or won't he?
That's the question mixed martial arts (MMA) fans have been asking ever since Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre defended his 170-pound title against Johny Hendricks in the main event of the UFC 167 pay-per-view (PPV), which took place on Nov. 16, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
While he stopped short of using the word "retirement," St-Pierre did confess to needing some time off.
We could find out as early as this Friday (Dec. 13, 2013) at a press conference in Quebec, which ironically is FRIDAY THE 13TH, a day notorious for its bad luck. That -- and murderous bipeds who prey on sex-crazed teenagers at Camp Crystal Lake.
To that end, I'm hoping St-Pierre shows up for his presser wearing a hockey mask.
"Rush" is expected to reveal his plans for the future, according to TVA Sports, which do not include raising a bastard child, burying a dead relative or cutting a check to a money-grubbing ex-manager, all of which he claims have been unfounded rumors to explain his absence.
Which I suppose is better than alien abduction.
UFC President Dana White expects St-Pierre to give Hendricks an immediate rematch, since a scoring controversy at last month's event in "Sin City" have many fans and pundits crying foul. Whether or not GSP owes anybody anything depends on who you ask.
With any luck, we'll get it straight from the horse's mouth before the weekend.
