Georges St-Pierre Says He Has OCD, Cites as Cause For Hiatus
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.26.2014



Speaking to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre cited obsessive-compulsive disorder as the cause of his recent hiatus from MMA. Below are some highlights from the interview.

Georges St-Pierre on having OCD: "As a competitor (and) 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. Every day, everything you do is oriented toward that goal. This same obsession about my work, about my job, to make me better, it was going to drive me crazy. That's why I took that break. I don't call it a retirement, because I don't know if it will be, but I had to step outside the competition for a while."

GSP on making a potential comeback to MMA: "If I come back, I think there are going to have to be some changes made. Different changes. On the drugs and a lot of things. A lot of things in my life, also. If I ever come back, it's going to be for the love of competition."
