Despite Recent Rumors Georges St-Pierre Still a Member of Team Jackson Camp

The rumors that UFC welterweight champion, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre has decided to officially walk away from Team Jackson and join the Tri-Star team in Montreal, Quebec, Canada are now being shut down.

Reported yesterday:

A post on MixedMartialArts.com, said:

“Talked to a friend from Tristar and he said Georges has officially changed his affiliation to Tristar gym. When Georges went to Jackson’s gym he signed a contract making it mandatory that Jackson be in his corner, so we will be seeing him there for the next couple of fights.”

ESPN’s Josh Gross just tweeted:

“Spoke to Greg Jackson re: rumors that GSP left him. He talked w/ GSP an hour ago. They’re fine. Also, he doesn’t have contracts w/ fighters. He said nothing changed between him and GSP. GSP hasn’t told him any different. He saw the rumors and laughed.”

Firas Zahabi, the Tristar trainer who works with St-Pierre sent a text Ariel Helwani which read:

“The rumor is not true. LOL.”
