"My injury is 100 percent now, I'm ready to go. I'm waiting to see what's going to happen next with the UFC.... I look forward to fighting again and I can't wait to see what's going to happen between Swick and Hardy.... It doesn't matter who I'm fighting, it's always dangerous. I learned my mistake when I fought Matt Serra, who was a big underdog. I'm the kind of person who never makes the same mistake twice.... [Dan Hardy is] a great fighter, he really deserves it. ... He's got very lethal, very powerful hands. He can knock you out with one punch. It's always a big danger when you fight a guy like him.... Mike Swick is very very fast, has probably the fastest hands in MMA. A very accurate puncher, he's very well-rounded so it's going to be a very interesting fight. They both have the tools to beat each other. I think the winner of this fight will be the guy who has the best strategy and who fights the smartest."
-- UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre informs the Canadian Press that he has completely recovered from a groin injury sustained during a five-round battle with Thiago Alves back at UFC 100 back in July. "Rush" refined his stand up skills while nursing his abductor ligament back to full strength. And now he's apparently back in the gym, training full strength in preparation for his next title defense in early 2010. It will likely come against the winner of the 170-pound showdown between Mike Swick and Dan Hardy at UFC 105 next weekend. Any preferences on St. Pierre's next opponent, Maniacs?
