UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre to bring his toolbox for Jon Fitch fight

Georges St Pierre

"When I won the world title the first time, it was like a dream. I didn't realize what I had until I lost it. Then I went crazy. I made a mistake and I don't want to do that again. I said then that every time I step into the Octagon, I'm going to be 100 percent ready, physically and mentally. I can't say I'll never lose again. No one is invincible. But I will never come to a fight unprepared.... [Jon Fitch] is undefeated in UFC and he brings a lot more problems to the table than my other opponents. He's not an old school fighter. He's in the new breed of mixed martial arts fighters. He's not coming from only one solid background. He's a good wrestler, he's good standing up and he's a black belt in jiu jitsu, which means he's very good at submission on the ground. That means I'm going to have to use a lot more tools than I have in the past."

-- UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre tells TSN.com all about his clash with number one 170-pound contender, Jon Fitch, at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9. If he gets the win it will mark his first title defense -- something that didn't go as planned the first time around against Matt Serra in 2007. "Rush" eventually exacted revenge; however, he doesn't plan on having to do that all over again with the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) stand out.
