Georges St-Pierre has long been patted on the back for his capacity to win fights and do so easily, but he’s also been chastised for doing it all in pretty mundane, risk-averse fashion.
UFC 154 was about as close to a statement as you’re going to get from him at this point.
He didn’t compete against Carlos Condit, he fought Carlos Condit.
They went pillar to post in the octagon, both leaving for the post-fight press conference looking like they walked out of a car wreck.
Bloody and battered, at one point in serious trouble, and still a champion for it all, GSP proved that his talk wasn’t just pre-fight hype. He said he was hungry and wanted to show the world what he could still do, and he did just that.
For the first time in a long time, fans are very much interested in seeing him get back in the cage and ply his trade.
