gsp_487_381Could Georges St-Pierre’s run as UFC champion be over after his fight with Johny Hendricks? I’m not even talking about the possibility of Hendricks beating GSP. According to St-Pierre’s trainer Firas Zahabi, the longtime welterweight champ might actually retire following the fight.

A recent tweet claimed Zahabi was discussing GSP’s future when he dropped the bomb that perhaps he’ll retire “if GSP does not have the motivation” anymore.

I suppose that could be said about any fighter following any fight. But still, it’s always more news worthy when it’s about the sport’s longest reigning world champion. As dedicated to training as St-Pierre has been for such a long time, “motivation” seems like the last thing that could disappear overnight.
