St-Pierre agrees with criticism, wants to finish more fights

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Georges St-Pierre has heard people’s gripes that he doesn’t finish enough fights. And one of the best MMA fighters to ever grace the cage isn’t just OK with them.

“I agree with the criticism,” St-Pierre told The Post by phone Wednesday. “I want to do better. I want to give more entertainment to the fans.”

“’Ive been training to jump more on opportunites that are open to me,” St-Pierre said. “I’m still gonna fight my fight, but I’m going to be more opportunistic.”

St-Pierre, 31, says it bothers him that people keep talking about a potential fight between him and pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva. Silva’s camp has repeatedly harped on that fight sometime next year and UFC president Dana White said it is a real possibility if St-Pierre beats Condit.

“I hate that,” St-Pierre said. “They talk to me about the next fight and I’m not there. Like I’m supposed to win easy, like it’s a joke. Carlos Condit is a dangerous guy. I always respect my opponent. My life is on the line.”
