Top UFC star threatens to break Georges St-Pierre's neck

Published Add your comment

Georges St-Pierre has been flirting with a return to the UFC for a while now and the French-Canadian has a whole host of suitors lining up to take him on, while also calling out who he wants to face.

One of those fighters is Jacare Souza, who sounds like he really, really wants to get his hands on the former UFC Champion.

After GSP said he wants a showdown with Michael Bisping for the UFC middleweight, Souza - the probable number one contender - isn't a fan of that idea and would instead fight St-Pierre for the right to fight for the title. The way he went about describing that was interesting, to say the least.

"St-Pierre never fought at middleweight. I don't know what he's doing here," Jacare said, in an interview with MMA Fighting.

"To me, he's a chicken. If I get him, I'll break him in half. He's retired and wants to fight for the title in a division he never fought before? He always ran away from Anderson (Silva), ran from fighting at 185, and now he wants the belt?"

Jacare is currently ranked third in the UFC's middleweight rankings, behind Rockhold and Chris Weidman - the division's last two champions.

He was scheduled to fight Rockhold at UFC 199 but a knee injury put him out of action and handed the shot to Bisping, who took it with both hands.

Break His Neck

Still, with Georges St-Pierre circling, Souza is making sure his name stays out there in contention.

"Look, I'll give him this chance, and it's going to be easy for me," he continued. "I would pass on fighting for the belt only to fight him if he moves up. He's a chicken. If he wants to move up, I would let Bisping for later, since I know I'm the next in line."

"If he wants to move up, I want him. I will break his neck."

They are definitely fighting words.
