Georges St-Pierre UFC 167 Post_9471Following UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre’s split decision win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Nov. 16, the 32-year-old Canadian made cryptic comments about potentially retiring.

“I am going to hang my gloves up for a little bit and make sense of my life,” he said following the fight. “I have to go away for a little bit at least. Personal things are happening. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the UFC.

“I have to step away for a bit, that’s all I can say right now. Later on, I’ll make a point about that. Right now, I have to go away for a little bit,” he continued.

UFC president Dana White has stated that a rematch is in the works, but St-Pierre’s manager, Rodolphe Beaulieu, told UFC Tonight that it’s “possible” that the fight with Hendricks may have St-Pierre’s last.

During the event’s post-fight press conference, the champion stated, “I understand from the point of view for the UFC and everything. It’s bad for them if I leave like this. But like I said, I need to make a point man. I can’t sleep at night now. I’m going crazy. I have issues. I need to relax. I need to get out for awhile.”

On Wednesday, St-Pierre tweeted a photo of himself on vacation and wrote, “Forget all the rumors- on vacation, happy & well!!!”
