Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre walked away from fighting and relinquished his title following his UFC 167 title defense againstJohny Hendricks in November 2013.  He recently sat down with CBC and revealed that his decision to take a hiatus from fighting was due to obsessive compulsive disorder.

You know, this makes sense. If you've ever watched the Primetimes, he's really weird about certain stuff. He admits that if he can't hit certain goals in training that he literally can't sleep at night. He also spent an odd amount of time talking about his space-age shower he has in his house on one Primetime, and mentioned how important it is over and over again. Could be an OCD thing.

His head has to be completely bald. He can't sleep at night with even the littlest bit of stubble.

Maybe we can chalk up his visit with aliens to OCD as well?

I remember when, after the loss to Serra, he let it be known that he had to have counseling to deal with the loss.

I still think the sport is catching up with him and he has peaked as a fighter. I think that scares him. He might not be able to handle back to back losses like Silva is going through or deal with what Liddell went through or Franklin. He is smart to stay away. How good will Hendricks be in 2 years?

I agree with u. Never was able to admit it but I wondered if both lost a step. I think its clear they did. Because IMO prime gsp and Silva don't lose to either guy
