Today, I am announcing my retirement from the Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts competition. I intend to keep training and practicing martial arts for as long as I live, but now is the time that I chose to end my career as a professional MMA athlete. I’ve always planned to leave the sport on my own terms and timing. It takes a lot of discipline to become and stay champion. It also takes a lot of discipline to stop while still feeling that you’re in the best physical and mental shape of your life. I believe that the best way to pass the test of time is to remain ahead of it. Swipe the photos to read my official statement. Aujourd’hui, j’annonce ma retraite de l’Ultimate Fighting Championship et de la compétition en arts martiaux mixtes. J’ai l’intention de continuer à m’entraîner et à pratiquer les arts martiaux aussi longtemps que je vivrai, mais le moment est venu de mettre fin à ma carrière d’athlète professionnel en AMM. Il faut énormément de discipline pour devenir et rester champion. Il faut aussi énormément de discipline pour prendre la décision d’arrêter au moment où vous avez le sentiment d’être dans la meilleure forme physique et mentale de votre vie. J’ai toujours voulu quitter le sport au sommet, en santé et à mes conditions. Parcourez les photos pour lire mon annonce officielle complète.

This was at my first UFC fight. It was against Dustin Porier. My career started by being finished. Becoming champion was not easy for me but the instructions were clear. I had to just keep beating the guy in front of me. After 10 wins in a row I got my title shot. But when I became champion there were no instructions on what to do next. I had to figure out what it meant to me. How to represent my team and my community. How to express my values as a martial artist. How to be a good father to my son while trying to entertain fans. I'm still figuring it out every day but I looked to GSP to create a blueprint for myself on the martial artist I would be. Many people think I named my son Rush after GSP. I didn't but Rush watches everything I do so GSPs influence is there every day. Thank you GSP from me and Rush 🇨🇦 @georgesstpierre

A study in greatness: The most important people in our lives are those who give us an example of what is possible so that we can lift ourselves higher. They don’t give us THINGS, they give us IDEALS; and those ideals can move us from within to become better people. Georges St-Pierre was the single greatest example of a positive athletic role model I ever met in my career. Every dojo or training partner he walked into or befriended was lifted by his appearance. Starting off as an unknown youngster from Quebec, he fought his way to the top of the fight worlds toughest division and beat the best of three generations of welterweights and then came back from an initial retirement to win the title at middleweight. Along the way he exhibited the highest standards of character and professionalism in an often wild sport. He ushered in the modern era of professionalism in preparation for MMA athletes to replace the traditional martial arts methodologies used by previous generations of competitors. Nobody did more to elevate the standing of the sport in the public eye as it grew from its bloodsport beginnings into the most popular combat sport in the world. He was an innovator who staked his career on the paradigm shift from single style specialists to what he stood for – integrated skills where the primary emphasis was on the interface BETWEEN skill sets rather than over emphasis on any one skill set. This enabled him to outwrestle wrestlers, outstrike strikers and dominate Jiu Jitsu champions on the floor. He was not the best at any one of those skills – he was the best at integrating them with a speed and direction that no one could keep up with. He defeated all his opponents, dominated every re-match he ever took and shut down the toughest opponents to a degree what was utterly astounding. It was the greatest privilege of my coaching career to be a small part of this great mans ascent to the top of martial arts. Through all the time i knew him and i have no doubt all the way into the future – He was a martial artist first and an MMA athlete second. This made him a perpetual student, a generous teacher and a truly noble fighter. Thank you, Georges, from all of us
