Former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion George St-Pierre has yet again arrived at a disagreement with the promotion’s president Dana White on whether he would step foot inside the Octagon or not. Speaking in an interview with TSN in Canada, White said “We’ve been talking about a fight with ‘GSP,’ but ‘GSP’ is retired. As far as I’m concerned, ‘GSP’ is retired right now. He’s not interested in fighting anybody.”

When contacted by MMA Junkie, Rush’s long time manager Rodolphe Beaulieu denied the claim that his client has retired.

This is not the first time that both the parties have arrived at such crossroads. During St-Pierre’s four year long hiatus, after his controversial split decision victory over Johny Hendricks, Dana repeatedly denied claims of him stepping into the Octagon again. Another major area of concern is St-Pierre’s health issues. He vacated his middleweight title only 33 days after he had won it by beating Michael Bisping, citing issues with ulcerative colitis. Recently, his name was hooked up with Nate Diaz for a face-off at UFC 227. However he declined the fight claiming that he had nothing to gain from it and that it wouldn’t benefit his career.
