And frankly George never discussed his mental problems before the match, he was all smiling taking photos and then he went on pretty much throwing all his problems and worries after the match during a press conference. Why do that there? It's as if he threw all that there to have an excuse to not come back.
GSP alluded to it possibly being his last fight before. The first I heard of it was maybe a week or two ago, so it wasn't just after the game.
However, it is pretty odd, it's not really a humble retirement move. The guy talks as if he's having some type of burnout.
Personally, I didn't find that GSP was really into the fight, and if he's taking about retirement or leave of absence due to stress related issues, there's no way he's entering the octagon in the right mindset.
If there's a rematch and GSP is in the right spot, I don't think Hendricks beats him.
