Former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre announces his retirement from mixed martial arts, citing he is “very happy” to retire at the top of the sport and wanted to do so on his own terms. GSP addresses discussions with the UFC for a potential fight with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, revealing the promotion has other plans for Khabib, and adding that he is a little disappointed that the bout will not come to fruition (0:47). St-Pierre describes the proudest moment of his career, which was when he was dropped by a head kick from Carlos Condit at UFC 154 and still managed to get back up and continue the fight (5:16). As much as he loves to fight, St-Pierre iterates that MMA isn’t his whole life and he has other plans, including spending time with his family (7:13). In regards to Dana White possibly calling him in the future about a fight with Khabib, GSP doesn’t know where his mind will be, but for now he is retired (8:57).
