09:34 PM ET 11.19 | After the controversial decision in the UFC 167 main event between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks, St-Pierre announced that he wanted to take some time away from the octagon. It was a puzzling announcement from the champion that left everyone confused, and it immediately drummed up some discussion about whether or not St-Pierre should actually step away. UFC analyst Joe Rogan was the latest to sound off on the comments from St-Pierre and he believes it is time for the champion to hang up his gloves.

If George is having memory gaps it already be too late.

Might be time to hang them up.

Hang 'em up GSP!

The fact that Dana disrespects him by saying he wont be at the post fight presser and yada yada yada he should hang em up.

Why go through all this when your employer doesnt want you except for the fact of the gate fees

Ok, so let's say that GSP retires... Who does Hendricks face for the belt this time?

A: Whoever the executioner condemns to meet him.

My follow-up question is this: With the rise of "Bigg Rigg" and the slow but eventual decline of the Spider, will bigger welterweights be looking to jump to middleweight to get away from this dude?

I have no doubt that some of the smaller welters are already dialing Dolce's digits in an effort to preserve their mental faculties!

Carlos Condit - Matt Brown winner.

Guys, Rig won the fight. GSP hung in and battled him relentlessly. Didn't back down at all on a night when he clearly seemed overmatched - sign of a champion. What if he is able to regroup? GSP is not old. Give him the benefit of the doubt and allow him a rematch to truly see if it was a bad night or if his skills are beginning to deteriorate. As well, if Spider wins his rematch, and GSP defends his belt once more??? biggest PPV in history at Texas Stadium in '15. Farewell match for Spider and GSP - perfect exit of two of the greatest ever.

GSP is a great champ for sure.

But as he said in the post fight interview he couldn't remember bits of the fight he was just in.

And if he is starting to space out, the last thing he needs is a few more shots to the noggin.

Guys have to know when to say when. As much as I'd love to see him fight Silva or have a rematch with Hendricks, I'd rather see him have some of his faculties remain rather than go the route of an Ali.

His last two fights have been tough on his head. He for surehas not "looked" like he won either of them.
