NEW YORK, N.Y. – George St-Pierre stated in an interview that he plans to retire if he loses one more game in the future.
It is quite a shock for game fanatics to hear this from George St-Pierre, given that he was on hiatus for almost four years. His record boasts fighting against the octagon’s greats such as Matt Hughes, Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, Jake Shields, and Carlos Condit. The streak was questioned when he met his match with an equally talented contender, Johny “Big Rigg” Hendricks on November 16, 2013.
GSP won the match via split decision, but he chose to vacate his Welterweight Division Champ title a month after the fight and announced that he would leave UFC for a while.
Fast forwarding to 2017, he seemed to be geared up to make a great comeback after he signed up for a title match against Michael Bisping for the UFC 217 Middleweight Championship belt. The event is scheduled on November 4, 2017.
Announcements of his octagon return were made during the first quarter of the year. In February, he allegedly agreed to the terms and signed up for the Bisping brawl. St-Pierre announced that the contract was prepared for four bouts in March. However, UFC President Dana White dropped that the match-up was canceled due to an injury excuse in GSP’s camp.
During his most recent interview, GSP admitted that he had suffered from nervousness, sleeplessness, and anxiety. He was and is still fighting against the use of performance-enhancing supplements.He believes that his supposed paranoia turned out to be correct, as some champions have already fallen due to drug use.
Georges St-Pierre ended by saying that he does not plan to lose. But if he does, it will be the conclusion of his amazing MMA career. His fight against Bisping will be held at the Madison Square Garden, New York City.
