MMA Quick Quote: UFC 111 notwithstanding, Georges St. Pierre has 'very exciting' fights

Gsp-alves-ufc-100_medium

"It was only my last fight. My other fights before (UFC 111) were very exciting, they were all very exciting. My last fight, people criticized me of course but if I would have got that armbar in the first round, no one would have said nothing and in the third round, the same thing, the Kimura. Sometimes the line is very tiny between a very good win in a great fashion and a decision."

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre responds to criticism (via MMA Digest) surrounding the recent backlash towards wrestling based offensive attacks that have carried some fighters to victory in spite of crowd satisfaction. "Rush" contends that his unanimous decision win over Dan Hardy at UFC 111 could be viewed as less than exciting, but fans also started booing his five rounder against Thiago Alves back at UFC 100 in July 2009. Are GSP fans spoiled from his dominant run as champion? Or just fed up with wrestlers taking the fight to the ground to avoid danger on the feet?
