Georges St-Pierre Explains Why It’s So Hard For Him To Finish Fights Lately

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre speaks out on why he finds it so difficult to finish fights inside the octagon ahead of his UFC 154 main event title bout with Carlos Condit in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 17th, 2012.

GSP, speaking via the Toronto Sun, said:

“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. You cannot always win by beautiful fashion. The guy that is in front of me is a very good guy. He’s the number one contender all the time and now I’m fighting the (interim) world champ in Carlos 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. Sometimes, when you break a guy mentally, he doesn’t fight to win anymore, he fights to not lose and to survive. That minimizes the opportunity for him to be finished. And that’s what’s happening in a lot of my fights and it’s hard to finish a guy who doesn’t fight to win. I think that my opponents have become better in time.
