"It's hard to become champion. And it's even harder to stay champion. Right now, I'm the target. Everybody want to take my place. I know what it take to be champion and I don't plan to let go of my title anytime soon. I'm not fighting to be champion anymore. I'm fighting for a legacy. Even if I believe I'm a better fighter than Dan Hardy, the night of the fight, I'm going to have to fight the best fight because if I don't -- it might be a bad night for me. I don't take this fight lightly. He's the most dangerous guy I've fought so far. I'm bigger, stronger, more powerful and more skilled than I've ever been. I see it like a marathon, not like a sprint. There's not one fight that will define me... it's the sum of my fights. I'm a proud champion and I want to fight the best out there. March 27 you will see the best Georges St. Pierre that ever step into the Octagon. I'm going to fight Dan Hardy like nobody has fought him before. It's easy to talk trash but harder to fight. I'm not really good at it. Fighting, it's what I'm good at."
-- UFC Welterweight Champion George St. Pierre has already written his name in the books of the mixed martial arts, establishing himself as one of the most respected champions in the history of the sport. But he tells FiveKnuckles that he is still working to cement his legacy as one of the best to ever participate in the sport. And on March 27, the Canadian sportsman promises to put on his best performance to date when he takes on Dan Hardy at UFC 111. Will the British star be able to derail the welterweight king's journey into the history books or is he just another victim along St. Pierre's quest to be one of the best of all time?
