It turns out that the ridiculous notion that Georges St.Pierre actually won the fight against Johnny Hendricks in UFC 167 is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to crazy ideas. There is a precarious whirlwind of strange rumors and weird stories surrounding the former UFC champion.

Origins of this phenomenon are fuzzy, but corroborative evidence came out of the champ’s own mouth on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast last year. St. Pierre claimed to be experiencing instances of “time theft,” where he would lose recollection of significant blocks of time from earlier in the day; they seemed to have simply been erased from his memory. He explained that he would sometimes be driving home, and then the next thing he knew, he was in his home with no memory of the journey.

He went on to suggest that he feels that he could possibly be experiencing these scenarios due to outside influences. St. Pierre has also stated in numerous interviews that his greatest fear is that of being abducted by aliens. Whether this is little green men or a breach in the space time continuum is certainly up for debate. What it really sounds like is a case of a guy who has been punched in the head too many times. Plain and simple.

UFC president Dana White recently told Clarissa Thompson of Fox Sports Live that, “The crazy stuff I keep hearing back from Georges St.Pierre is unbelievable. Not only did he tell us it was personal issues, he told us what the personal issues were.” White also explained the St. Pierre did not cite headaches or drug testing as things that were bothering him and went on to say that he would never, ever publicly divulge what he had learned from St. Pierre in private. Those sorts of comments tend to wind up the rumor mill when it comes to the private lives of top-tier athletes, and this case is no exception.

YouTube posts postulating the true origin of St. Pierre’s torment are like a random sample platter of scandal and conspiracy. Some suggest that he has a mistress who is expecting a child, while other ideas explore the possibility that his father’s declining health is the culprit. On the stranger side, you have the paranormal contingency claiming that interdimensional beings, not UFOs are to blame. Some fans on Twitter are doubtful that St. Pierre was even training when he recently tore his ACL, an injury that will require surgery. Maybe it happened during one of these so called “blackouts” and his car hit a tree.

Whatever the case may truly be, this proves that there are no dull moments in MMA, in or out of the cage.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
