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.
Not a humble retirement speach, it's a "get away from me" speach. As such you're right he may have a 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.
My perception as well. He didn't seem into it. Not to take anything away from Hendricks but he didn't seem all into it.
Still I understand White's frustrations about GSP going all Oprah during the Press Conference. As a warrior and fighter you should accept everything that comes with it.
