Georges St-Pierre is at least temporarily walking away from the fight game, and just exactly where he’s going nobody truly knows. St-Pierre came to the idea well before his narrow victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, and it felt like a foregone conclusion several weeks later in Quebec City, where he shrugged the world off his shoulders by vacating his belt just before a sponsorship appearance at an area mall.

I still believe he wants to fight Anderson Silva before its all over and done.

Georgie, take a year, relax, enjoy your money, then hopefully Anderson is still fighting when you start thinking about that cherry on top of your amazing career.

I'm curious to know where anybody got the idea he ever wanted to fight anderson in the first place. Seems to me he closed the door on that every time it was ever brought up.

I'm with you

I don't think GSP has any interest in ever fighting Anderson. I've felt this way ever since the Condit fight ended.

im actually impressed with GSP it takes a real man to realize they have issues, go out and get them solved or at least attempt to, and to give up "everything" or at least one of the main things he has spent his life for. It takes real balls, and guts to do this all the respect in the world to G S P.
