White said he has been trying to set up a fight for St-Pierre but the 37-year-old is "retired."

The UFC supremo said: "We’ve been talking about a fight with GSP, but GSP is retired.

"As far as I’m concerned, GSP is retired right now. He’s not interested in fighting anybody."

White has been trying to schedule a fight with Nate Diaz and St-Pierre in Los Angeles but the French-Canadian is not interested in another bout, even with a big-name opponent in the offering.

He added: "We were trying to do a fight with him and Nate Diaz in Los Angeles, and GSP doesn’t want the fight."

"GSP doesn’t want to fight right now. He’s not interested in fighting."

St-Pierre, who is considered as the greatest welterweight champion in the UFC hadn’t fought in four years after his win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in 2013.

GSP returned in November 2017 to beat the then UFC middleweight champion Bisping via a submission in the third round to become a two-weight champion at UFC 217, before vacating the belt the next month and hasn’t fought since.
