"No, for me, it was not the greatest fight. It was a fight that displayed a lot of determination and heart, but I believe on the technical points, especially at the end of the fight, the guys were too tired to be able to make a display of technique. But it was an interesting fight for a lot of the fans because ... it showed a lot of heart and courage. Clay Guida's fight with Benson Henderson was pretty good. That was a good fight. It was a display of courage, determination and technique, as well. So they had everything in one (fight). At the end of the fight, they were still able to deliver and the pace was high."
Georges St. Pierre is not impressed with Dan Henderson and Mauricio Rua's late round performances in their UFC 139 main event bout this past Nov. 19 in San Jose. Speaking with QMI Agency (via slam.canoe.ca), the welterweight champion does not share the same sentiments as UFC President Dana White, B.J. Penn, and countless fans and media around the globe. "Rush" says that while the fight was entertaining for fans, it fell short of his approval for greatest of all time due to the lack of technique and late round issues with cardio. Clay Guida vs. Ben Henderson, meanwhile, delivered from the opening seconds to the final horn, leading St. Pierre to say it was the superior contest. Surprised to hear "GSP" preferred the lightweights over the light heavyweights? Agree or disagree with his stance? Sound off, Maniacs.
