Georges preps (Florian) for fight against BJ

We left the GSP greasing scandal last week with BJ Penn ‘accepting Georges’ challenge’ to fight again. Now we have Georges backing off the idea of an immediate rematch :

“With all the things that have happened, the excuses, all these things, I’m not very happy about it to tell you the truth. I’m mad a little bit,” St. Pierre said about Penn. “The thing is, the more I talk about it, the more people will talk about it, the more people will think I’m trying to make an excuse. I’m not the one who tried to say things. I have nothing to hide. I’ve always been honest. For me, they can say whatever they want. For me, the fight is over now. I look to the future; B.J. is the past.

“I enter a new chapter in my career. I want to go forward, not to go back.”

That doesn’t mean that things are over completely between the two fighters. It now looks like Georges will be helping Kenny Florian prepare for his title shot against BJ … an act that will certainly do nothing but fan the flames for an eventual third battle between the two. Because let’s face it … wether it be this summer, next summer, or in two years from now, so long as BJ Penn is winning he’s going to want another shot at that belt.
