Georges St-Pierre says that he isn’t sure whether he’ll defend the UFC middleweight title. St-Pierre, who won the title from Michael Bisping at UFC 217, told TSN that he doesn’t believe it’s likely.

“I’m not sure if I will compete if I will go back to 185,” St-Pierre said in an interview. “I don’t think so.”

He added regarding his contracting ulcerative colitis, which he believes was related to his moving up in weight classes, “I did what I did; I learned from my mistakes. I don’t think it’s a good thing to do, to force myself to eat to gain muscle mass. I’ve always been against performance-enhancing drugs, and I did it the natural way. There’s no easy way. I did it the hard way. It was to gain weight and to maintain my muscle mass and it was very hard and it was not healthy. I think the body has a natural weight that it can perform at its best athletic ability. For me, the wight I have now is my perfect weight.”
