Video: Georges St-Pierre's First Interview After UFC 167

Dustin FilloySenior Writer IIIJuly 1, 2016

Georges St-Pierre didn't need a public relations official to dispel a slew of rumors regarding his decision to temporarily walk away from competition following his win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167.

In fact, as you can see in the above video, St-Pierre instead chose to answer a slew of personal queries freely from a prying TMZ Sports reporter while walking through an airport.

Wearing sunglasses to conceal the damage from his controversial win over Hendricks, "GSP" responded to the rumors with a smile, saying, "I'm not a dad, I'm not in rehab, and my father is not dying."

Regardless of what's eating St-Pierre, it appears he needs time off, and fans shouldn't expect to see him in the Octagon anytime soon. And considering what his brain and body endured at UFC 167, fans shouldn't blame him.
