Next Fight: UFC 154
No, he isn't in danger of being cut but hear me out.
UFC 154's main event is a huge fight for St-Pierre. Not only is Carlos Condit one of the toughest challengers the champ has faced in recent memory, but St-Pierre will head into the fight coming off a lengthy injury-induced hiatus.
That means the match is dangerous for St-Pierre. It also means a loss is monumental for him as well.
Defeat would, by no means, signify the end of St-Pierre's career, nor would it automatically equate to his removal from the upper echelon of the sport. But, a loss at UFC 154 would be more than just a black mark on St-Pierre's legacy.
See, GSP's fight with Condit is his chance to dispel the notion that his injury will affect the way he performs indefinitely.
If he wins, all doubt regarding his ability to rebound will disperse.
If he loses, those doubts grow. And it will take more than a damage-control victory to put out the fire.
