Dating back to his Welterweight title win over Matt Hughes, St-Pierre has only lost twice in his career.
Most recently, St-Pierre returned and defeated Michael Bisping to win the Middleweight title. Due to health complications, he vacated the title and originally held plans to drop down in weight to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov later this year.
Set as a future Hall of Fame talent, the era of Georges St-Pierre is finally coming to an end.
