Georges St-Pierre open to a third fight with Koscheck, Dana White not so much

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre has revealed he would be open to a third fight with bitter rival and opponent at UFC 124 this past weekend, Josh Koscheck, that was until UFC President, Dana White quickly rule it out.

St-Pierre, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“I said if I beat Josh Koscheck there’s going to be no rubber match. He’s going to be done and we’re never going to fight each other again. He’s very tough, and with the performance he did tonight I think he’s still in the top welterweights. I may have talked too fast. Who knows? Maybe a few months, years, maybe he’s going to come back.”

UFC President, Dana White was quick to turn down the offer of a third fight between the two:

“It leaves Koscheck in a real bad position in the welterweight division unless somebody else beats Georges St-Pierre because Georges has dominated him twice. George said it to him at the (pre-fight) press conference, and he was right. He would have had to beat him tonight to ever have a chance. He (Koscheck) went in there tonight and he knew he had to win.”
