Georges St-Pierre was experiencing migraines before fights
Georges St-Pierre is on break from the UFC after walking away from the sport following his controversial victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November. A number of different reasons were given for him stepping away and vacating the belt.
There were rumors that GSP had impregnated a woman and that his father was sick, but his family denied that. Another issue is that GSP may have had some health concerns he wanted to alleviate.
Fight Hub TV’s Marcos Villegas said he spoke with Freddie Roach, who has trained GSP in boxing, and Roach told him that GSP was experiencing migraines before fights. Migraines obviously vary in severity, but that could be another reason why GSP wanted to step away.
Maybe he had a lot of personal stuff going on. Maybe he was burnt out from all the training and pressure of fighting. But when you’re experiencing migraines, the fear of head injuries and health effects also starts becoming a factor.
