I thought that he was going to come out of the closet.

Why would he need to do that right after a fight, in front of millions?

I think he is just burned out and suffering from severe stress, feeling like he is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

I thought that was appropriate.

Georges pulled a bad move with the ambiguous 'I'm-retiring-not-really but maybe taking a break.' It made no sense to do that with Rogan and the only possible outcome is the press wanting to follow up.

I give him a pass because Georges has been a consummate professional throughout his career and made a bad decision right after a brutal fight where he took some bad shots to the head.

If he needs a break - which is exactly what is sounds like, for mental health - he should take it. I can't imagine the stress a guy like Georges is under for this many years and unlike his peers he's not married with a family to keep him grounded.

What I sincerely hope though, they immediately put the belt on the line for Hendricks and Lawler. There should be no voluntary sabbatical where you nest on the belt, in particular after a controversial split decision. The division has to move on with or without Georges.

I don't usually buy into theories like this but I'm starting to suspect more and more that it's this.

It is VERY worrisome for GSP that his alien handler was missing from the corner for this fight
I think you are on to something here.

And Dana knows that remember Dana's rant during UFC 151?

I literally just bumped into Greg Jackson the other day and was kind of joking about some of the things Ive said [in the past], White said. Ill tell you what. Ill go on record and say it. This guy is a f---ing sport killer. This guy is from another planet. And Ive never seen anything like it in my life.
