Anyone have the video of GSP after the phone conference (rips UFC)
 
Just wondering if anyone has video of his appearance after the whole phone call announcing him giving up the belt.

The majority of it was in French and the translator seemed to miss a lot of what GSP was saying. With that said here is what I caught.

**EDIT** this was after his fight at UFC 167, as he was getting stitched up**

- GSP claimed that although he was announced as going to the hospital he had superficial cuts that were being tended to after the fight (he mentioned something about playing volleyball on the beach somewhere the next day but the translator didn't pick up on it)

- A UFC official told GSP first that the post fight press conference was 'full' and that he wasn't allowed to go

- GSP insisted on going and was physically restrained by security and told point blank he was not allowed inside the post fight press conference. He pushed his way in and walked in anyway.

- He did not immediately know what Dana had said about him in the press conference and when he found out after he was really pissed

- Dana is a promoter at the end of the day and probably did that to hype another fight

A lot of that bugs me to a certain degree, specifically him being told he cannot go to the press conference. Does someone have that video or if you speak French and get it, translate what it is he said about that incident?

thanks

I had no idea about the majority of this. Pretty wild.

Dana White might be great at what he does, but I hope he doesn't believe in karma. The man has treated his best fighters in his organization like complete garbage at times.

I see no reason to kick a man when he is down, and I hope Dana gets a taste of his own evil medicine one day.

SWP, this isn't it. The comments GSP had on his post fight issues after 167 were televised on national Canadian TV. It was his appearance somewhere where he was wearing a old school Quebec ice hockey jersey. He seemed pretty calm, but you could tell as he was talking that there was a lot more that he was saying compared to what the translator was actually saying himself.

I could get bits and pieces of the stuff that the translator was saying, but not enough to fully understand it.

Anyone have this video? It gives an insight to how the UFC operates in this situation.

This was the case of Dana being Dana. Much like how he said he was going to fire Anderson after the Demian fight. I still think that was a hilarious fight. He COMPLETELY schooled em for the first three rounds and showed us how to "cruise" the last two. That was more or less a demonstration of trolling.

Anyways I agree he definitely should have toned down his rhetoric. After doing some thinking. I'd feel pretty discouraged and pissed hearing that from em especially being the company man he is.

So, it's a big middle finger to the org. If Hendricks won I would have lived with it. But this way he can leave on a high note which is extremely rare in sports these days. If he comes back his PPVS will be stronger than ever.

Rory should have handled his biz against Robbie then I'm sure he'd be contending for the belt. That was the plan all along.

That explains why he stormed out of the ring after that loss. When he lost to Condit he was very humble in defeat, but against Lawler, he was visibly upset. Don't blame him, but it makes sense that they probably thought he would win and they probably all knew gsp was going to take a break.
