Georges St. Pierre wants to fight Diaz, Hendricks, Anderson Silva then retire

According to Paltry, St. Pierre would like to defeat Nick Diaz tomorrow night, and hurt him in the process, before moving on to face Johny Hendricks, who he believes has been talking too much since his win over Kampmann, and then finish up by testing himself against Anderson Silva.
This sorta sucks. We have about 3 fights left with GSP if he actually sticks to his word. He is in his prime and definitely has another 5 years (imo) left. I hope he doesn't retire early.

I believe GSP shot the statement down or at least said that wasn't what he meant.

Anderson's been talking retirement for 5 years now, so I take these comments with a grain of salt. GSP's tired, upset, annoyed, and probably cutting weight... he probably loves the idea of retirement at this stage. Ask him how he feels tomorrow night after he stomps Diaz and the fans are cheering for him, and he'll likely say he wants to fight another ten years.

I believe him.

GSP started to show his frustrations with the media work and obligations in the run up to the Koschek fight and showed it again for the Shields fight. Whilst i wouldn't doubt GSP's integrity i do wonder if year and a half off was truly needed to recover from the injury or if it was recovery plus extra down time.

Three fights left? i believe him.

GSP probably just meant those are the guys he wants to fight next. Seriously doubt he would consider retiring in his prime.

If he has the money... and still has his health.... and has basically concurred his division.... Why not go out on top? Why should he have to wait until he's lost his edge and go out like BJ Penn.

Barry Sanders or BJ Penn... hmmmmmm

I think a guy like GSP, who has always talked about the importance of his legacy in MMA would absolutely intend to retire in his prime.

If he does go on to beat Anderson Silva i think he'll retire right there and then.. and who could blame him?

I really hope this fight does not turn into a slow grab and pound on the ground for 5 rounds. GSP could win 49-46 or something if he manages to just hold Diaz down at will. I really hope Diaz bottom game makes the 5 minutes count so that GSP has to work for it in each round.

I feel like GSP is really getting tired of "the game... and I think all of these feelings got made worse by what he's going thru with Nick Diaz. Who can blame GSP tho? I'm sure if the UFC was just a straight mma competition he would love it... but to be at the receiving end of all this WWe style drama must get really tiring.

I'd retire after getting knocked out 3 fights in a row too. :)
