"Not everyone can retire at their peak, but I know in a year or 2 years from now I will make a decision about coming back." "What else is there left to do? Make money? I will always be able to make money" 3 Days before Retirement he said this in regards to Conor vs Poirier "Both of these fighters, I finish both of them. I am not interested in Conor rematch, I want new blood, new motivation. I want legacy fight, I want new someone." "GSP fight make me excited, motivates me" I think the "retirement" was a spur of the moment decision with emotions. He always planned to come back and have another legacy fight.
