GSP Wants to be More Exciting, Take More Risks | UFC News

George St. Pierre has notably won 9 in a row and has been the undisputed UFC welterweight champion.  The fast pace of mixed martial arts makes it seem like that was eons ago due to rehabilitating a knee injury.  Before he returns to the octagon to face Carlos Condit  talks of Anderson Silva vs GSP looms.

“I’m interested to fight whoever they put in front of me,” he told MMA Fighting on Tuesday. “I’m not afraid of nobody. I want to make the biggest fight.  Right now, I just came back from a long time off, and I think the first guy in line is Carlos Condit.  So I’m going to get who they give me.”

GSP is also quoted saying:

“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.”

He continues on to say….


“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.”



When asked about the possible match up with Anderson Silva again GSP replies:

“Who knows?  I don’t know.

By the time I get there, maybe there’s going to be a new other guy that will be the next big thing and I’ll be fighting that guy. Things go fast in mixed martial arts. You never know.

There’s a lot of guys that want to fight me.

I’m going to tell you something I’ve learned:  the only things you can control are what’s in your present.  What is happening right now is I don’t have any fights signed. We don’t control life, we don’t control what goes on.

Sometimes you focus on things you don’t even control and it doesn’t even happen. That’s a waste of time and energy, and I don’t want to do that.”

Let’s hear it Penn Nation.

  3. Yo says:

  4. g00db0y says:

    only time he took a risk was when he got submitted by matt hughes….after that it’s all about running around in circles like frankie edgar!

    GSP Doesnt Need To Change Anything, He Will End Up Getting Knocked Out. & Just To Point Out Iv Noticed That American Fans Boo At Every UFC Event, Fighters Feel Pressured Into Knocking Sum1 Out Or Getting Knocked Out, Its MMA Not Boxing.

    • The King says:

      You got it backwards bro. MMA FANS wanna see BLOOD and GORE!!!! so yes GIVE US SOME FUCKING ACTION!!! Point fighting safety fighting shit is a BIG no no now days. fighters are catching a lot of heat for being BITCHES! The UFC has finally realized this. Dana thought he could get away with selling the boring Greg Jackson Point style and it worked for a while.. Remember when GSP was the SHIZNIT??? Now hes known as a bitch that cant finish! BLOOD AND GORE! Get it right or GTFO!

      • Tom says:

        Try fighting the best in the division you tool. The only disappointing fight gsp had lately was the fight against jake shields. What about when he fucked up’d bj penn on the ground and on the feet for 4 full rounds until he had to call it quits. Yes it is partially about being entertaining and going out to put on a show, although if your not a complete moron and know what you’re talking about you can watch a very technical fight and get entertainment out of that not just 2 idiots going in the cage and throwing hay makers for 15 minutes. Disappointing to see how many morons there are giving the sport bad rep.

    There goes the little kid gOOdboy again with his stupid remarks….you know nothing about the sport and you shouldn’t be allowed to play with the computer……..dork

    • The King says:

      LOL at all the GSP nut sniffers still trying to resist the FACT that GSP is nothing but a bitch! fights like a bitch. and has oodles and oodles of fans that are bitches as well.

      MMA FANS WANT ACTION!!!!!!!!!! GET IT????


      The UFC tricked you into thinking he was the best when in reality hes one of the biggest bitches this sport has ever seen!!!

      Thanks Dana!! Thanks for brainwashing all these naive gullible idiots into thinking GSP was a REAL fighter….

      • TheCrippler says:

        At least he didn’t quit because he couldn’t win a fight unlike some fighters…
        Pretty sure the most complete and dominant fighter at 170lbs ever will always be less of a “bitch” than some fuck head who likes talking tough over the Internet.

  7. Noah says:

    As a Canadian, I support and love GSP but to be honest with people of mma fans, in my opinion, he stopped taking risks after lost to Serra and it’s unlikely he takes risk in the future as well…However, I don’t think people should not compare him with Edgar because he wins the fights distinctively.

  8. B-rad says:

    GSP is a beast, regardless of what anyone says he is the most dominate WW in MMA history..

  9. 123 says:

    bunch of fucking idiots.

  10. derp says:

    GSP fights like a man with nothing to loose when he has nothing to loose. (winning the title from hughes and to take the title back from serra) Other then that i think hes perfectly fine with fighting smart and winning unanimously with game plans. i enjoy watching GSP fight like he did against hughes and serra. Since then its been pretty one sided coasts to maintain the title which i dont mind. I just enjoy seeing him go out there like he has nothing to loose

  11. Aldo Raine says:

    I hope he’s telling the truth. I’ve been watching MMA for ages. It seems just like yesterday that GSP knocked Jay Heiron the fuck out. I remember when he was a beastly exciting fighter that was knocking people out, and had all the tools to eventually dethrone the beast known as Matt the fuckin Beast Hughes.

    I’ve hated the way he has fought since the Serra fight. To me he was fighting like an athlete, not a fighter. Fighting not to lose instead of fighting to win. I don’t respect that kind of fighter. I only respect true fighters, warriors that believe in giving it their all, and not being hesitant to use their skills when they’re losing. I hope GSP gets the warrior spirit back.

    Eitherway he should beat that little bitch Carlos Condit. Even if I don’t respect GSP as a fighter, I don’t think anyone can hate him as a person. he’s a really cool dude

    • The King says:

      REAL fighters KEEP IT REAL no matter what…

      GSP fagged out. plain and simple. The UFC used to back him 150%
      now they back him 75% to 80% WHY?????

      because the UFC knew that the fans didnt like what they were seeing from him..


      • Mike says:

        Can u post one of your fights on u tube please and put the link on here so we can all see how fighters should fight and conduct themselves outside of the cage please!

  12. Clay says:

    Née to see him fight

  13. Pancho says:

    I hope Condit gets back to his ways and finishes this fool. That fight with Diaz made me lose a lot of respect

  14. T.DADDY says:

    Ur career is almost over and NOW you wanna start finishing fights? Ur garbage mr grease

  15. allmightysandman says:

    sounds like a good plan to me.

    All the haters on this site (who are in the mad minority in the real world, but they know that) beg, cry and whine for him to be more exciting and when he says he’s going to, then that’s not good enough either.

    For the record, GSP does not care what you think.

    I’m a fan of GSP, but I’m also a fan of exciting fights, so I really hope he does what he says he will and be the beast he used to be.

    Glad to see Rory and BJ booked again too….really looking forward to that one!

  16. KIDD433 says:

    if what GSP says is true,theirs 2 things he needs to do.1st being he needs cut to greg jacksons fag camp.2nd he needs to take the cock out of his ass

  17. zack says:

    Did anyone else read this entire thing in GSP’s accent?

  18. Chael Sonnen says:

    Look….Grease….I mean Georges, in all honesty, is a fantastic fighter. He does his job, and he wins. Many American fans don’t even know what they want. They all say “They want a bloody war” or “I want to see them “Bang”, I’m tired of boring fights”…But then on the same token, if a fighter “Bangs” or in other words, “Fights like a wild moron”. And get caught, they’re is no respect for them at all….True fans want W’s…Not bums fighting wild, like a bunch of drunken bar fighting idiots. A good war is always fun to watch….But a technical war, is a good war….Look at Wandy Silva…He “bangs” every time he fights….And though fans do love him, nobody will ever consider him as a top contender….Because when it comes to fighting quality opponents, Wandy spends more time sleeping than a narcoleptic, watching a John Fitch fight…..In conclusion I do agree that Georges needs to get a finish, but in all fairness he is great, and he does win decisively…He dominated Josh Koshcheck(in the stand up…No humping) and he rarely even loses a round….So get your facts straight…..Dummies….
