One time I was fighting against BJ Penn. I had his back against the fence. I’m not kidding you, for a few seconds I look and I was staring at a beautiful woman in the audience. It was … uh … (snaps fingers) Cindy Crawford. I stared at her. I’m thinking, ‘My God, she’s so beautiful. And she’s looking at me.’ And just next to her, I see her husband looking at me and I’m like, ‘Oh my God. I can’t look at her. Her husband’s looking at me.’ Now I’m thinking, ‘Of course, they’re looking at me. I’m doing the show right now and I’m in the middle of the fight.’ So I’m like, ‘Go back to your focus’ (laughs).

[St. Pierre walked to an interview with Fuel TV backstage right after Nate Diaz. The champion was alerted to a few choice comments from Diaz] He just said I hit like a girl and he wants to fight me in a rematch immediately. So I guess we’re back to where we were

[Georges St-Pierre announces he will take a break from fighting] Physically I’m 100 per cent, I’m still young, I’m on top of the world. But mentally I just feel like I cannot go through another training camp right now and I don’t know when I will be able to

I’m going to take a break. I need this. I need to have a normal life for a bit. I’ll feel better and come back stronger. [Asked what he wants to get away from, St-Pierre said he loves his sport] As much as I choose to do it, now I choose to not do it … I don’t know when, I don’t know if, I think I will [be back] I can’t say 100 per cent. But right now I just don’t want people thinking about me. I believe one day I will come back. The problem is I don’t know how long [I will be away]

[As champion, St-Pierre has worn a target on his back since he first won the title in 2006] The situation I’m at, it’s a lot of pressure. It’s like every fight I’m carrying weight on my shoulder. Every fight, it’s like you add weight on your shoulder. Every fight. At one point it comes so heavy that I have a hard time carrying it myself

[Ariel Helwani ask Georges St-Pierre on Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Dustin Poirier fight] Great performance. He is a very, very good fighter and no one has been able to find his weakness. Great champion, too

[Georges St-Pierre was happily retired but did not rule out a return to the Octagon] I don’t envy nobody, I’m retired for a reason. If anything comes up, the UFC knows where to find me. But right now I’m good where I’m at, I can’t complain. Life is beautiful, because of the fans. I’m very grateful

[when asked who should face Khabib Nurmagomedov next] One hundred per cent Tony Ferguson. It’s gonna be a good fight. I’m a big fan and I’m gonna be watching. [Georges St-Pierre said it was tough to call who would win out of Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov] I don’t know, it all depends who’s gonna be able to fight their fight. Tony likes a dirty fight with elbows, knees. That’s his style. Khabib likes to control guys when he’s on the floor, and it’s a tough game. It all depends how it goes down. Styles make fights sometimes, it’s tough to predict
