UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has become one of the elite fighters in all of MMA. However, the one constant knock on GSP has been his inability to finish fights.
It's been over four years since St-Pierre has earned an actual stoppage inside the Octagon, as his 2009 victory over BJ Penn came when Penn's corner halted the bout. In 2008, St-Pierre landed several knees to the body against Matt Serra, earning the TKO victory.
"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," said St-Pierre, in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun. "You cannot always win by beautiful fashion."
St-Pierre has earned decision victories over Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves, Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck and Jake Shields since reclaiming the belt. He is 22-2 in his career, with eight knockout victories and five via submission.
"The guy that is in front of me is a very good guy," said St-Pierre of Condit. "I'm working a lot more on being more opportunistic and it's going to pay off I'm sure. I think that my opponents have become better in time."
