GSP plans to finish Condit to silence critics, hints at possible 185 move

“I want to finish because of the criticism,” said St. Pierre. “I’ve listened to the critics and I want to become more opportunistic.”

“(It bugs me) but at the same time, my last fight wasn’t that great. I got poked in the eye.”

“I can make up a bunch of excuses but the truth is I’m fighting the best guys all the time and it’s tough competition. You cannot always win by beautiful fashion. The guy that is in front of me is a very good guy. He’s the No. 1 contender all the time and now I’m fighting the (interim) world champ in Carlos Condit. I’m working a lot more on being more opportunistic and it’s going to pay off I’m sure.”

“When I see an opportunity, I don’t need to overthink it and I need to go for it,” he says.

“I think that my opponents have become better in time. Sometimes, when you break a guy mentally, he doesn’t fight to win anymore, he fights to not lose and to survive. That minimizes the opportunity for him to be finished. And that’s what’s happening in a lot of my fights and it’s hard to finish a guy who doesn’t fight to win.”

“The biggest challenge is that he’s a very smart, very well-rounded guy,” says St. Pierre, who boasts a 22-2 record.

I’m 120% says GSP in regards to his health.


“I don’t focus on that right now,” said St. Pierre.

“If I move up to 185-pounds, I’m going to stay at 185 and I’m not coming back.”

Flattr this!
