TriStar guru Firas Zahabi recently mentioned his star pupil, UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, might retire after a November title-defense against Johny Hendricks based on a lack of motivation. If Hendricks beats him, expect GSP’s fire to start burning brightly again. If “Rush” emerges with his hand raised, it may be possible he could call it quits but such a scenario is extremely doubtful. St-Pierre makes millions on every fight, not to mention the sponsorship money and other opportunities created by his career. More than anything, Zahabi’s comments can be chalked up to one of the numerous strange assessments he’s offered up on St-Pierre in the past such as discussing a possible dip down to 155 pounds being a superior option for GSP compared to a run at middleweight.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the possibility of a bout between Nick Diaz-Michael Bisping to Georges St-Pierre contemplating retirement after his next fight to a quick glimpse at Saturday night’s lineup for UFC 166.
