Rory MacDonald: I don’t think Georges St-Pierre is gone for good, he needs some time



Fellow Tristar team mate Rory MacDonald thinks Georges St-Pierre will not retire from MMA, yet think’s that he just needs time to rest and relax before making a return to the Octagon.

In the past week this has been the topic of UFC headlines after St-Pierre won a controversial decision over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167.  His mentor and trainer Kristof Midoux has suggested that his good friend retire form MMA competition.

MacDonald dished out a few words himself, courtesy of the MMA Hour:

    “I don’t think he’s gone for good. But maybe he needs some time. People have no idea the kind of pressure it is to fight, and I have no idea what kind of pressure it to hold the belt for (six years). Before that he was headlining cards since he was younger than I am right now. That’s a lot of pressure. That’s a lot of interviews. That’s a lot of work, and the guy, he’s a machine. For someone to be able to do that, to carry a belt for that long, and to be a headliner for that long, it wears on you. He needs a break.”
