Who is telling the truth in the saga between UFC President Dana White and former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre? The former champions trainer Freddie Roach stated on Tuesday that GSP had been suffering from migraine headaches. Roach also advised St-Pierre to take a at least a year off and said a superfight between the Canadian and Anderson Silva could have happened if Silva and St-Pierre had won their respective fights.

White was on Fox Sports Live and responded to the statements of Roach.

“The crazy stuff I keep hearing back from Georges St-Pierre is unbelievable. No, Georges St-Pierre never complained to us about headaches. Georges St-Pierre has never publicly said the real reasons why he stepped away from the UFC for a year. When he sat down with Lorenzo [Fertitta] and I it was a whole different set of issues, personal problems. It had nothing to do with headaches or drug testing or anything else that’s been said.

“Not only did he tell us it was personal issues, he told us what the personal issues were. I have no idea [why he keeps complaining]. I don’t know if he’s just trying to draw a smokescreen to what he’s really dealing with and doesn’t want to publicly talk about [it]? I don’t know.”

Anderson Silva And Georges St-Pierre Fight Almost Happened

One year ago, the biggest possible fight in the history in MMA was a superfight between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre. Now at this current time, Silva has lost two times and in his most recent fight against UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Silva broke his leg in the fight. St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November and announced he was vacating the welterweight title and isn’t sure if he will return. The possible superfight was a lot closer though than people ever realized.

Marcos Villegas was in California at media day for the Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley fight that will take place on April 12. Villegas spoke to Pacquiao head trainer Freddie Roach, who has helped St-Pierre work on his standup in the past. Roach gave some insight into the possible superfight and more.

You can see why St-Pierre took a break especially with the migraine headache issue. Do you think the superfight would have happened if Silva would have beat Weidman?
