GSP to hold press conference Friday

Quote:
Georges St-Pierre is set to announce his future plans at a press conference at the end of the week. Le Journal De Montreal reports that St-Pierre is holding a press conference at his gym, Montreal's Tristar, on Friday.

A UFC official told MMAjunkie that they hope to have more information on the event soon. GSP has been taking time off since his controversial win over Johny Hendricks by split decision at UFC 167 last month, claiming personal reasons.
I hope he plans on taking his talents to South Beach

Really? i hope he retires, he's too boring IMO. The belt should he handed to Hendricks... This might not be too popular but it's the right thing to do i believe... GSP's Mental state is shot..

It sounds like he made up his mind to retire. I dont think he wants to fight Hendricks again. Unless this is a clever way to announce a REMATCH to fight Hendricks again and build up some suspense right from the bat. If that is the case i'm wrong in saying he does not want to fight Hendricks again (Obviously lol).

I know people are talking about GSP not performing the way he used to and its most likely a mental thing. But i personally never agreed with that. I think GSP is performing the same way and his speed is still there. The first 3 takedowns versus Hendricks in the first round were amazingly quick. He was able to catch Hendricks off guard with it and took him down fast. The next 2 Hendricks knew was coming and stuffed it with a planned upper cut. But those Takedowns were prime GSP takedowns. He also threw the inside lead leg kick faster then iv seen anyone throw. He was in and out before Hendricks could throw a punch.

Iv never seen all this slowing down and "that obviously wasnt the GSP we know from a few fights ago" that other people talk about. I think the only thing that has changed is that he is facing better competition and thus he cant look as good. He would still beat all his opponents back to his first fight very handily. The only opponent he would not beat is Hendricks. And thats the opponent he is getting.

This is a good time to retire. He has the belt, the record, the money, the fame, respect, etc etc. He has alot to lose if he keeps fighting and from GSPs interviews its obvious he cares about leaving a superb legacy. Which IMO would be good even if he rematches Hendricks and loses but im sure to him retiring with the belt is alot better and easier then retiring on a win streak breaking loss and no belt. Especially when then people will say "Well he should have 2 losses in a row right now". On the other hand currently you have some people who believe GSP won the first fight fair and square (Im not one of them mind you but what i think does not matter since GSP has that W).

As a big GSP fan I hope he retires. Mentally he seems to be all of the place in recent fights.

What has he left to prove?

I'd lost respect for him if he did. Hendricks deserves a rematch, win or lose.

How do people call GSP boring? I'm not overly excited for his match ups, but at the end of the day he DOES strike, work his jab, impress with takedowns etc. Also, dominance is exciting, and then in turn a dominating figure beating put in trouble is exciting. It's like the people calling Mayweather boring.

GSP = boring could have been the winner of the forums end of year awards for best forum meme. It's utter rubbish. GSP is anything but boring.

Hope he retires. He doesn't seem mentally there any more.

Honestly, I don't really care. But If you've got something to say just say it. Don't make people wait.

Not true that's just an easy excuse for people who are fans of GSP to say he's better than he actually is. The reality is his last 3 opponents have hit him more than the rest of his combined opponents because they are way better than everyone else GSP fought in the rest of his fights.
