The rumors has stemmed after GSP’s chief trainer,Firas Zahabi was interviewed in the French speaking program TVA sports.  In the interview, Zahabi has stated that the champ has told him about a possible retirement if he loses the desire to train.

“George told me if the occasion should retire after this fight. If he still has the motivation for another training camp, it will continue. Otherwise, he will take his retirement.”

However, the entire MMA world must have misinterpreted Zahabi’s statement as he later denied the rumor in an interview with Ariel Helwani. He revealed to the UFC Tonight reporter that GSP is not planning to retire regardless of the outcome of his title fight. Zahabi also added that their current camp is the best that they had in the past two years.

“GSP has always that said if he loses the drive to really go through with a great training camp and push himself, then he will retire,” Zahabi said through Ariel Helwani. “GSP’s camp has been his best in years, last two not so great, because he was so rusty because of the knee injury.”
