Rogan: GSP should retire


UFC color commentator Joe Rogan appeared on The Opie & Anthony Show earlier this week, and said he thinks it is time for UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre to retire, and further that he thinks GSP lost to Johny Hendricks Saturday night.

"I think Georges should retire," said Rogan as transcribed by "One of the reasons I think Georges should retire is he was on my podcast and he was talking about being abducted by aliens. I was going, 'you think you've been abducted by aliens?' He starts talking about missing time. He started talking about driving his car and all of a sudden he's at home and he has no idea he got there. I think it's head kicks."

"That fight he had some serious memory loss. I think he's taken too many shots. An interesting statistic is that Georges has taken more punches and kicks in the last three fights than any of his fights, ever. In fact, 50% of the shots he's taken his entire career were in the last three fights. I think he should get out. I know the UFC probably doesn't want to hear me say that. I know that could be a huge rematch."

"I think they should just give Johny Hendricks the belt. I think Johny Hendricks won that fight. I think there's real problems with judging and I don't think there should be a way for a guy to win a fight, but yet lose a fight."

What do you think UG? Should GSP retire? And who do you think won Saturday night?

Frankie Edgar lost 2 close title fight decisions to the same guy and nobody gave him the belt.Maybe GSP does need to retire. He's certainly in the latter stages of his career. If he does retire, though, it should be with dignity and with the full support and backing of the UFC without all the petty garbage talk. If they are going to flap their gums it should be about his legacy, the records he's broken, etc. You know, the garbage talk like a UFC commentator calling in to a show to bitch about how many shots the champ has taken in his career, alien abduction, and poor decisions.GSP certainly has earned that.

Exactly. That's why the judges have to score each round as they go and not make it up after the fact.

He needs to criticise the system itself.

When you initially watch this fight and you hear Rogan scream for 25 minutes about how Georges is hurt and how everything JH is doing is devastating it's going to affect how you view the fight. If you rewatch, taking out all of the emotion of watching it live for the first time the fight looks far different.
