Celebration Short Lived For GSP, Next Challenger For His Title Announced

After Georges St-Pierre defeated Thiago Alves at UFC 100 this past Saturday, the post-fight celebration began! St-Pierre noted on his blog that after the big fight, he hit up Mandalay Bay’s The Foundation Room for his after-party, where he celebrated with fans and friends. The next day, Rehab was the site of celebration, where fellow UFC fighters Jon Fitch and Shonie Carter met up with GSP to party. Thiago Alves even stopped by GSP’s cabana, congratulating the welterweight champion on his win.

“I thought he was a class act and that prove that he was a real professional athlete and a real good person and a gentleman,” St-Pierre wrote on his blog. “I really appreciated it, he’s a great fighter and also a great gentleman, and we had a good time drinking together.”

GSP continued the party at Body English later that night, where he said, “I drank so much that I couldn’t sleep at night.”

However, UFC President Dana White had some news for the champion that was sure to sober him up – he announced GSP’s next opponent yesterday.

“Mike Swick vs. Martin Kampmann could be fight of the night at UFC 103 because the winner takes on Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight title,” White stated of the Swick-Kampmann bout set for UFC 103 on September 19, 2009 in Dallas, Texas.

But fans will have to wait to see the highly anticipated title fight. After suffering an injury to his groin at UFC 100, St-Pierre will be taking some time off to heal up. But GSP says he is ready for his next challenge.

“I want to face the best guy,” the champ commented after his victory over Thiago Alves. “Right now, I’m in really bad pain. I’m going to take a step back and take a look at it and we’ll talk about it, and in a couple of weeks we’ll see.”
