"Shari has been very valuable to me and my career over the last several years. We broke through a lot of barriers together and so I will always be grateful to her and call her my friend." ---Georges St-Pierre

welterweight champion and his manager Shari L. Spencer decided to call it quits.

According to the Press Release:

“They felt they had a different vision for the future of Georges’ career and it was best to remain close personally but dissolve their business relationship.”

GSP signed with Spencer in 2007 and since then he became a known athlete in the world. He was then given endorsement deals with blue-chip sponsors like Gatorade Canada and Under Armour.

“Shari has been very valuable to me and my career over the last several years. We broke through a lot of barriers together and so I will always be grateful to her and call her my friend,” St-Pierre stated.

Spencer, who also manages UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, runs her very own management group, The Spencer Firm.

“I am extremely proud of the representation I provided to Georges and the incredible opportunity to have partnered with an athlete of his caliber. I am thankful for the trust that he displayed in me in managing his career since mid 2007 and I wish him the best going forward,” she stated.

GSP will still be a part of the Creative Arts Agency Sports team, who he signed with in 2008, but will have to hire another manager soon.
