Firas Zahabi, lead trainer for UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, recently appeared on Sherdog Radio Network’s “Cheap Seats” show, and discussed who's next.

“That’s something that after he comes back from vacation we’re going to have to sit down and talk about, Georges and me and his management,” said Zahabi. “It’s not a one-sided decision. The UFC is going to have to obviously tell us what they want to do. I think Georges would do either fight, to be honest with you.”

“If he fights Hendricks, I think he could fight for longer. He could have more fights after that. If he fights Anderson Silva, I could really see that being his last fight. He’ll retire after that because there won’t be a bigger fight for him to do, I think, anymore in his career."

"Win or lose, I think he’ll probably end on that note, on Anderson Silva. Maybe that’s why it’s been pushed back a little bit, but I think when it does happen, it’ll be the last one because once he goes up a weight class, he’s never coming back down.”

He is smart about it. Go out at the top of the game. Assuming he had managed it well he had the money to live comfortable for the rest of his life. Why put your body thru the damage to where you get side effects when you don't have to. He can also still make bank doing endorsements. If he were to retire.... I couldn't be mad at him as a person. He has achieved the goals many other fighters dream of. Why risk the ride off into the sunset when you don't have to. Phone Post 3.0

You've summed it up perfectly. No bigger challenge? How about repeating a dominating MW run? Pfft, there are plenty of challenges, and super fights out there.

I disagree, if you beat Silva, there is nothing left at MW. The MW division is not stacked full of talent like the WW...there really are no challengers after that. With both Chael and Vitor gone, it is even more shallow.

If he loses to Silva, there is no point in sticking around at MW.

GSP can't wait to fight anderson.

In 2 years anderson probably won't be the same fighter he is today.

Remember Anderson convinced us he would retire at 35? Has he signed that 10 fight deal yet? Phone Post 3.0

It's awesome to see a GSP thread full of his usual bashers on the first page.

He's entering his early 30's and the silva fight should absolutely be his last fight, there is no bigger fights to make after that... Win he goes out on the highest note imaginable, lose but make it a 5 round fight still on a huge note, lose he still retires the greatest WW ever and top of the p4p list Phone Post 3.0

Why do I get frozen for speaking truths about the ZUFFA shills running, but blatant racism by a pure lame no-name scrub fighter cutting up one of the best of all-time get no notice?

You are a loser. You'll never accomplish 1/100 of what Georges did.

It's odd. Considering how many people criticize and hate on Georges, you'd think the one thing they wouldn't criticize would be his personal decision to retire.

Stephen Holder - I can absolutely gaurantee you that GSP's legacy is already ruined because he 'plays it safe' fight after fight and if the bout with Silva doesn't happen (for whatever reason at this point after he's already ducked) Georges will be remembered for being a coward and nothing more in every country worldwide not named Canada.
Stephen read this out loud to yourself and tell me how hard it is for you not to punch yourself in the face? Phone Post 3.0

he knows that no matter what if he fights anderson it's all down hill for him, thats the biggest fight for him! anderson can always fight bones, but he can say "i cleaned" a division, and too my shot at the GOAT of the sports, he also is too smart to fight till he cant be a normal human being!
