UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is one of the promotion’s most dominant champions and most well-respected fighters. Though some find ways to criticize St. Pierre and his fighting approach, his results speak for themselves. His overall record is 20-2 and he has defended his welterweight strap four times against some of the best fighters in the world. He will take on previous opponent Josh Koscheck this December 11th in the main event of UFC 124 and even though he admits that his trash-talking opponent has gotten under his skin, he will be keeping himself composed as he realizes that one slip up could spell the end of his welterweight reign.
“It’s not always the best team that wins the game in baseball and football, it’s the team that plays the best the night of the game. It’s the same thing in fighting,” St. Pierre asserted. “It’s not always the best fighter that wins the fight, it’s the fighter that fights the best. No matter how great people tell you you are, you always have one mistake to lose everything.”
“GSP” and Koscheck served as opposing coaches on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter, where Koscheck took every available opportunity to rile St. Pierre up. St. Pierre’s team cleaned up the competition and “Rush” is looking to keep that streak going and use Koscheck’s taunting as fuel to defend his belt successfully when they meet.
“The reality show was good. From The Ultimate Fighter this season, everything went according to plan,” he said. “Koscheck’s been running his mouth a lot, you know? I never said nothing back, but I plan to answer with my fists in December.”
UFC 124: St. Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 goes down this December 11th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
