UFC 129 Fight Card: Dana White Praises Georges St-Pierre for Trying to Be Better
During the UFC 129 Press Conference on Wednesday afternoon in Toronto, UFC President Dana White praised Georges St-Pierre not just for his performance in the Octagon and as an ambassador for the sport, but for the UFC Welterweight Champion's never-ending desire to improve.
"I think Georges St-Pierre - and you'll find very few people to argue - is a special individual," White said. "One of the things that I love about Georges St-Pierre, too - and he says it all the time, 'I've achieved this, I've achieved that' - but he never stops working. He's a hard worker, because he keeps striving to be better than he was last time. He wants to be the best, and I respect that so much from a guy who's had the belt, who's done things, who's made a lot of money. He's done everything you can possibly do but he keeps working this hard because that's who he is. He's an incredible champion, and he wants to be the best."
It's that continued will to challenge himself that would likely be one of the driving forces behind the much-talked-about superfight between St-Pierre and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, should that matchup happen. Should he beat Shields on Saturday, GSP will be very close to running out of ways to challenge himself at 170 pounds, and a move to middleweight to challenge Silva could certainly be the logical progression.
