UFC champ Georges St-Pierre denies rumors from TMZ, according to Dana White

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Dana White says GSP has denied both rumors stemming from a TMZ report, and maintains that he's confident of booking a rematch soon.

It didn't take long before those rumors about GSP's father's illness and an unwanted pregnancy were refuted. Apart from St-Pierre's family members refuting reports about their dad being in poor health, Dana White has went on record saying that Georges St-Pierre has denied both rumors stemming from the TMZ report. He spoke to the LA Times about it:

White said he spoke to St-Pierre on Monday and the fighter "is denying those rumors that TMZ is reporting about those two things." White declined to identify what issues are distracting the fighter.

White also reiterated that he's confident he'll be able to book a rematch with Johny Hendricks soon, despite earlier statements from St-Pierre wanting to retire or take an extended leave:

"As far as a rematch, we’re on schedule and I’ll have a date within a couple weeks," White said. "I feel confident that Georges is fine with that and all is on track."

...

St-Pierre was not available for comment Monday, White said, and after spending an extra day in Las Vegas to let his blurred vision improve, St-Pierre is "going off the grid" on vacation, White said.

Whatever those issues are, hopefully St-Pierre would be able to clear his head during that well deserved break before making any major decisions about his career.
