George St. Pierre , the welterweight champion of the world. Five out of his last six fights , have all went for the full 25 minutes.  He's gone from George " rush " St. Pierre. To , George " whats the rush? " St. Pierre

 

For most of us watching the PPV last night , it was odd to watch George outclass Shields in the stand up , yet not throw many combinations or really try to push the pace at all. You would think he would br trying to finish , but even when he dropped Shields in the later rounds with a headkick , he was hesitant , and didn't really pounce on Shields to try to finish the fight. 

 

Here's what i think , George St. Pierre is getting paid by the minute , by his sponsors. 

Think about it , the longer the fight goes on , the more and more you see that banner with all those logos int he background , every round that passes you go over to the corner to hear the advice from Greg Jackson , but subliminally , you see those logos on that banner and on all their shirts. The companies are getting 25 minutes of live ppv with thousands of viewers , they could easily afford to pay GSP a few thousand rather than possible millions it would cost to buy that much air time in commercials.

 

Have i had a realization, or a moment of insanity.. ? 

 

You be the judge , but if I am right I may be on to something and we'll have to consider that other fighters may be under the same payment plan. ( Jon fitch , Grey Maynard , ect. )
