I really think retirement is something GSP is now thinking about. He tore his ACL, which if it happens again could be a lifelong irritation. He has also said that the division has completely changed and the younger fighters are better and stronger. Sounds like he has doubts about whether he wants to expose himself to the tough fights. He is intelligent and diplomatic enough to be management material in this business and continue his career on that side of the business.
IMO he will put in another 2, maybe 3 fights and then call it quits.
Ya might be right. He's actually 30/31 already. Still remember when he blazed onto the scene.
If he had a better command of the English language without the thick accent there's no doubt he would become a bonafide movie star in the footsteps of Van Damme, Cung Le, Randy Couture, and Rampage even. Heck the Hollywood studios will still probably book em.
We'll probably know by the end of the year. The stars have aligned. The ball is on GSP's court even though they said they're willing to fight "if" Anderson comes down to 170...haha. Maybe with the Mike Dolce diet it could work if he started now...but that might jack up his chances against fighting the LHW holder down the line...and that's the fight I really want to see.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
