Georges St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks to retain the UFC welterweight title at UFC 167 last November. St-Pierre during his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan stated that he was going to walk away from MMA. Moments later at the post-fight press conference, St-Pierre said he was undecided if he was really going to retire. St-Pierre announced a few weeks later that he was dropping the title and was taking a leave from MMA, with a return uncertain.

You listen to St-Pierre do interviews and you see how cerebral he is and how obsessed he is with his opponent in the octagon. In an interview with Wendy Mesley of CBC News, the former champion admitted he has from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The former champion describes how he dealt with having the disorder.

“As a fighter it’s a good thing to have it, because it makes you better because you completely obsess about being a better martial artist,” St-Pierre told Mesley. “Everything you do is oriented around that goal. But the same thing could be bad for a normal person in normal life.”

St-Pierre said he would never sleep more than five hours a night and his personal life and mental health suffered greatly.

“It was going to drive me crazy. That’s why I took that break,” St-Pierre said. “I had my first New Year’s and Christmas with my family, a real one. I don’t have to go away because I have a fight coming up.”
