In what cannot be considered a surprise, Georges St-Pierre announced on a conference call that he is vacating his UFC welterweight championship. St-Pierre also stated that he doesn’t know if he will return to the organization.

“I’ve been fighting for a long time,” St-Pierre said. “I have 22 fights in the UFC, and 15 were for a world title. I’ve been fighting a long time at a high level, a lot of pressure and criticizing. I’ve decided I needed to take some time off.”

St-Pierre stated that dropping the title was done out of his respect to his fellow fighters.

“The UFC is a business. I’m vacating my title out of respect for the other competitors.
