GSP takes a break from UFC

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is taking a break from fighting.

As a result, the 32-year-old from Montreal is giving up the 170-pound title he has held since April 2008.

St-Pierre had cast doubt about his future following his last fight when he said he needed time away from the sport to sort out some personal issues.

The mixed martial arts star fleshed out his plans today via conference call.

St-Pierre's last fight was a controversial split decision over top contender Johny Hendricks last month at UFC 167.

    Georges, you have nothing to be ashamed or to apologize about. You are a GREAT CHAMPION and Montreal, Quebec and Canada are all proud of you.
    Georges, vous êtes le meilleur. BRAVO.
