Luke Rockhold has a stern message for Georges St-Pierre

Whatever the case, all the confusion surrounding St-Pierre has got former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold pretty aggravated.

Unfortunately, Woodley's requests have fallen on deaf ears with seemingly no interest coming from St-Pierre after he decided to tackle the middleweight title in his first fight back at UFC 217 when he defeated Michael Bisping. He won't last here.

For months, Luke Rockhold has repeatedly said that Georges St-Pierre shouldn't be competing in the middleweight division, and even though he's now the 185 champ, Rockhold hasn't changed his mind.

Following his victory over Bisping, St-Pierre was expected to return to the Octagon and unify his newly won belt with the interim championship currently wrapped around Robert Whittaker's waist.

"He's not fighting any of us", Rockhold said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour (h/t Dave Doyle of MMAFighting.com).

Either way, Woodley admits that facing St-Pierre has been a lifelong goal of his and that's why he was willing to sacrifice something he worked so hard to obtain just for the chance to fight him.

"... I don't want to jump to conclusions". "He's been the king". "I hoped my condition would improve after the fight but unfortunately it got worse and I had to go straight to the hospital for a colonoscopy when I came back from vacation last Wednesday". Does Georges need to fight me?

"I thought [GSP] would potentially lose, yes", Rockhold said.

Colitis is an inflammation of the inner lining of the colon and can result in abdominal pain, cramping, and diarrhea; as well as more severe symptoms that could include fatigue, dehydration, joint swelling, skin inflammation, and fever. Just move along and let us handle our business here. State what it is. "I'm still a very happy man, thanks for your support!"

'But, I mean, the fact is come out and just that say you don't want to fight here in the division, relinquish the title, and move on. I'd be seeking the fight, I'm not seeking the fight because that's not realistic.

On Friday night, UFC president Dana White revealed that St-Pierre is dealing with a bout of colitis. So, he looks right, Whittaker is the real champ, he has been the real champ a long time.

What happens next in the middleweight division remains to be seen, but it sounds like Rockhold and others are ready to move on, with or without GSP.
