Talks of a potential fight between Kamaru Usman and George St-Pierre have been brewing for a long time.

Many MMA fans have been calling for this dream match-up, but it appears that St-Pierre has moved on from the world of MMA and has no intention of entering the octagon ever again.

'Rush' has gone on record to say that he does not like fighting. Speaking to ESPN MMA's Ariel Helwani, St-Pierre said:

"I never liked to fight, to tell you the truth. You know, I never enjoyed it for a second. People think I'm lying but this is the truth. I never loved to fight. I never liked it. People ask me why you are fighting then. I guess, I like to win better than I hate to lose. I like the money that I was making, I like the freedom, you know. In order to have that freedom, that money, that access to things that people doesn't have, I needed to fight. That's how I make a living."
