UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre haunted by Matt Serra knockout heading into April 30 title fight

Serra-upset-gsp_medium

"With Jake Shields, I'm very nervous for this fight. I have goosebumps, more than ever before. I have the flash of what happened with Matt Serra (at UFC 69) and I don't want it to happen again. I'm fighting the most dangerous guy I have ever fought and it's going to be a very tough fight."

Though reigning UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre claims to have exorcised the demons, perhaps the house of "Rush" is not clean after all? The Canadian kingpin will defend his 170-pound strap against division number one contender Jake Shields at UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto and admits to Sportsnet.ca that his shocking upset loss to Matt Serra at UFC 69: "Shootout" back in 2007 still haunts him as he approaches the biggest event in the history of the Octagon. Will his nerves get the best of him at the Rogers Centre? Or will the 55,000+ in attendance carry GSP to victory in his sixth straight title defense?
