UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre Has Car Stolen
Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Stealing from a UFC-caliber fighter would strike most people as a bad idea, yet somehow, it looks like welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre had his car hi-jacked last week. 

Here's what "Rush" tweeted on Thursday: 

GSP did not provide any further details about the incident, but regardless of what kind of car he was driving, he should be able to afford another one based on the $400,000 he made at UFC 158 this March (via MMA Manifesto). 

The French-Canadian superstar sees a rare stroke of bad luck here as he is currently riding an 11-fight win streak inside the Octagon, which includes a UFC welterweight record of eight consecutive title defenses.

According to UFC President Dana White, St-Pierre "positively" knows that his friend and occasional training partner Chris Weidman will beat middleweight champ Anderson Silva next month (via MMA Mania). 

Therefore, don't expect to see a St-Pierre vs. Silva superfight in this lifetime.

The 32-year-old is expected to face top 170-pound contender Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks for his next title bout, though the match up is still yet to be finalized according to MMA Mania

St-Pierre hasn't tasted defeat in over six years since getting upset by Matt Serra at UFC 69, but Hendricks is on a six-fight unbeaten streak and boasts impressive one-punch knockout power that could put any welterweight's lights out. 

In this particular situation, the robber is probably better off having the police catch him, as opposed to one of MMA's pound-for-pound greats.
