While it was unclear when he’d return, UFC president Dana White recently said he’s never “coming back.”
During a press conference for UFC 193 in Australia, White essentially said St-Pierre doesn’t have it in him anymore.
“GSP’s rich, man, he’s hanging out and he’s living the good life. In this sport you have to be hungry,” he said, according to The Sun. “You have to jump out of bed every day and want it. You’ve gotta want to win, you’ve gotta want to be a world champion. He’s had it. He’s accomplished all that stuff. He’s made a lot of money, he’s accomplished a lot of things. I don’t see him ever coming back, no.”
St-Pierre is now 34. In late 2013, he said he was taking a break from MMA indefinitely, citing personal and professional problems.
