According to multiple reports former two weight world champion Georges St-Pierre is set to announce his retirement tomorrow.

It seems St-Pierre, 37, will call it a day with a press conference on Thursday at the Bell Centre in Montreal, a venue which has hosted several of his fights.

The news was first reported by Reseau des sports reporter Benoit Beaudoin, St-Pierre also posted on twitter thanking his coach Firas Zahabi and saying after all these years we remain undefeated together.

St-Pierre had been hoping for a fight against lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for the potential to add a third weight world title to his resume however Dana White has never appeared keen on the idea.

After a split decision win over Johny  Hendricks in 2013, St-Pierre took time away from the sport, although he never officially retired. GSP then returned in November 2017 taking on then, middleweight champion Michael Bisping at Madison Square Gardens in New York. He submitted Bisping in the third round to become a two weight world champion.

GSP had only two defeats, against Matt Hughes and Matt Serra, he would go on to avenge both defeats.

Widely considered one of the best to ever compete in MMA and a sporting icon in his native Canada, it seems GSP has had enough. Or could he be using this as leverage against the UFC to seal the fight he wants.

Time will tell.
