Joe Rogan thinks it is time for Georges St Pierre to retire.
The veteran commentator called the action at UFC 167 and also conduced the post-fight interview following St Pierreâ€™s winning of a controversial split-decision over Johny Hendricks.
Rogan told The Opie & Anthony Show that he thinks St Pierre is showing signs of brain damage from his fighting career.
â€śI think Georges should retire. One of the reasons I think Georges should retire is he was on my podcast and he was talking about being abducted by aliens,â€ť he says.
â€śI was going, 'You think you've been abducted by aliens?' He starts talking about missing time. He started talking about driving his car and all of a sudden he's at home and he has no idea he got there. I think it's head kicks [making him forget things]."
"That fight [with Hendricks], he had some serious memory loss. I think he's taken too many shots. An interesting statistic is that Georges has taken more punches and kicks in the last three fights than any of his fights, ever.
â€śIn fact, 50% of the shots he's taken his entire career were in the last three fights. I think he should get out. I know the UFC probably doesn't want to hear me say that. I know that could be a huge rematch."
"I think they should just give Johny Hendricks the belt. I think Johny Hendricks won that fight. I think there's real problems with judging and I don't think there should be a way for a guy to win a fight, but yet lose a fight.â€ť
The UFC is currently putting heavy pressure on St Pierre to fight a rematch with Hendricks and forget his idea of â€śtaking time awayâ€ť from the sport. According to the latest from UFC president Dana White, things are â€śon trackâ€ť for the rematch to happen.
