THE GEORGES OF OLD

Georges Saint Pierre isn’t an athlete who pretends he doesn’t read the blogs or pay attention to the twittersphere. Fact is, he does. And it shows. Or at least it will. The UFC Welterweight Champion vows that his fights post-knee injury will again deliver the excitement and dramatic finishes that were so characteristic of his fights early in his career.

Said Rush: “Towards the end, I didn’t have the drive anymore. I was doing it because I had to do it. I didn’t have fun anymore. I lost a little bit of the love for the sport. There is a saying in English that you don’t repair something that is not broken. Sometimes I believe you have to break it yourself to repair it, to make it better. Because the sport of mixed martial arts will evolve. If I stay at the same level, they will catch up to me. I need to evolve, to stay ahead of game. The critics are always there. I listen to the critics. I’m very critical on myself. I want to make more finishes myself. I want to be more exciting, take more risks, be more opportunistic. I’ve been working on that a lot.”
