Georges St-Pierre, the third guy in the last decade to be considered "the greatest mixed martial artist of all time," will never return to the Octagon.
At least that's what UFC President Dana White believes.
"Georges St-Pierre will not fight again," White told reporters in Las Vegas this week. "I have said that before and I will say it again. Georges St-Pierre is done. He is retired. He will not fight again."
When a reporter asked if GSP has actually told him that, White responded confidently:
"He doesn't have to tell me that. I have dealt with him. We have been dealing with this thing. I have been in this since I was 19 years old. I know the mentality of a fighter that wants to fight and I know the mentality of a fighter that doesn't want to fight."
GSP recently said that he did want to return to the Octagon. Either White doesn't believe GSP or he's trying to bait the former champion into returning.
"He's been saying that for a long time," White said. "I wholeheartedly believe you will never see Georges St-Pierre in the Octagon again unless he is cornering someone."
