After GSP defeated Michael Bisping in November, 2017, it was revealed that the star had been battling ulcerative colitis leading up to the bout. Not long after, the Canadian fighter vacated the 185 title.
In more recent months, St-Pierre had expressed an interest in fighting again, and challenging lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov. But, UFC President Dana White has repeatedly said the promotion wasn’t interested in making that match-up.
St-Pierre will hang-up the gloves having gone 26-2 in pro-bouts.
