Giving away the UFC title was GSP's Xmas present to himself

The long-time Welterweight champ is back from his first relaxing holiday with his family in years and he's got some big projects for 2014 that don't involve fighting in the UFC.


Former UFC Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, who gave up his title following a tough split-decision win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, has made his first public appearance in 2014. The Edmonton Sun was there to document it:

"I just took a break. I spent Christmas time and New Years, with my family. That's something I haven't done for a long time. This is the first time I've really had nothing on my schedule. It was perfect. It was fun. It's the first time it felt so good.

"I'm 32 years old and this is the first time I have my Christmas with my family. I spent some time but I never really had free time, total free time like I did. It was time for me to do it. I'm very happy I did it and I don't regret any of it.

"So Christmas was incredible and now for 2014 we'll see what's going to happen. I have some projects in mind. I can't talk about it, unfortunately."

Any guesses as to what GSP might be up to?
