Jake Ellenberger: If I was Georges St. Pierre, who will eventually lose, I would look to fight Anderson Silva -- then retire

Add Jake Ellenberger's name to the list of people who believe Georges St. Pierre should consider an early retirement. Find out why "The Juggernaut" thinks the 170-pound champ should be in a "Rush" to call it quits.

"A lot of people like to talk negatively about GSP, but to be able to do what he does against the top guys, consistently, it's extremely hard. For him it's like, he's in a position where he can only lose, it can only get worse. If I was him, I would look to fight Anderson Silva then retire. You beat the top guys [but] eventually you're gonna lose, eventually someone is gonna beat you. That's just gonna happen. He may not be finishing fights, but he's consistent. The hardest thing to do in this sport is be consistent."

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Jake Ellenberger has some career advice for reigning division kingpin Georges St. Pierre: Go out on top! "The Juggernaut" tells Rick J. Lee that "Rush" -- winner of 11 straight -- is going to lose eventually, so he should get out while the gettin' is good -- and collect one last mega-payday in the process, which would come against UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva in the oft-discussed "super fight." Of course, that scenario would require victories over Johny Hendricks for "Rush" and Chris Weidman for "The Spider," but it's quite the popular topic as of late, considering St. Pierre's own trainer has stamped an expiration date on the French-Canadian's fighting future (find out why here). Anyone think Ellenberger is giving sound advice? Or speaking out of turn?
