Could it be? GSP said after his los.. uh.. win over Hendricks Saturday night that he had a lot of things on his mind and he needed a break from MMA.
Well today none other than TMZ reported that GSP has reportedly knocked up or gotten a lady pregnant, and doesn’t want to father the child reportedly.
All of this might be premature, as rumors go, but TMZ has been remarkably accurate in the past and so there could very well be truth to this, or as the old adage goes, where there’s smoke there is fire.
Blogs are already questioning why GSP didn’t use a “rubber guard” and some have suggested he’s been using a method called the “spray and pray” method associated with his MMA style.
At any rate, GSP’s father is indeed dying and that coupled with something like this can make life stressful for a star like Georges.

Georges St. Pierre, his manager, and his sister have all refuted this rumor along with rumors that his father is in ill health and dying. Doesn’t mean any of this isn’t true, it just means they are denying it. Also, his manager is claiming the source of GSP’s stress is that one of his former managers is suing him for millions and he’s worried he’ll lose.
Quite an historic night on Saturday huh? Well, almost… Man, Koscheck didn’t look good at all against Woodley, constantly looking for that big right hand, but in the end, it was Woodley that found a home for the right hand – on Koscheck’s chin. That was probably the most tactical fight we’ve ever seen Lawler fight, focusing on leg kicks early to weaken the base of MacDonald. We usually see Rory muscling guys up against the cage, but you aren’t bullying Lawler buddy. The combination of leg kicks, positional control, and a few heavy shots into the bargain, Lawler got it done by split decision – who next for the “ruthless” one? Rashad handled Chael like a child, and the loud mouth Oregon native responded by moving back down to 185 where he can hold people down for 15 minutes. The main event was very exciting, as Hendricks wasted no time in putting hard shots on the champion’s dome. It seemed to be Hendricks plan to win the first two rounds, take a breather in the 3rd, win the 4th and give up the 5th. It seemed like he got it done to me, but I was surprised to see that GSP was awarded the 1st round, taking home a split decision on two of the judges cards. It looks like the strikes landed in the 1st round were pretty close, but the damage sustained wasn’t similar at all, as Georges’ face looked like a rotten tomato that was run over by a semi. I felt that Hendricks clearly won the fight, and he should be the new champion.

Great job by tylerdurdin83, missing only 2 picks all night, and nailing the hotbout perfectly -excellent work! nomomrnicekyle had a similar situation, but with just a little bit less accuracy, landing him in 2nd place for this event – Well done as always. Let’s talk about bebop2109, while his crystal ball failed him on the specifics, he managed to go 12/12 on this event – I hope you put some bets down bebop2109. Coming 4th place, chosen141 puts up his 2nd best score of the season, again only missing 2 picks with a perfect score on the hot bout. And rounding out our top 5, dan-o1 puts up yet another big score, hampered mostly by his decision to pick Chael Sonnen for the win – how dare you sir!
Having a look at our overall standings since last event shows that none of the top 5 positions have changed, but the points have shifted slightly as we head into our final event of the season. Still holding strong in 1st place, brokenbrain kept up his consistency on Saturday night. Previously 18 points behind the leader, dashamas gains 6 points and is now only 12 points behind the top spot. dan-o1 was at a 31 point deficit before Saturday, and he’s now a mere 13 points behind fame and stardom – “I’m coming for you brokenbrain!” challenges dan(he-could-go-all-the-way)-o1. bvrasp is hanging on to 4th place and looking for a top 3 finish, but tylerdurdin83 is hot on his heels after his great performance in the last event. So take a week off guys, it all goes down on on November 30th with the amazing TUF Finale card – ok, it’s a crap event, but those have historically been the toughest ones to predict. Who will reign supreme? and who will reign butthurt and crying waiting for next season? Tune in for our nail-biting conclusion!!
