"I'm sad for Anderson ... It makes you remember every time that even the best can lose. One mistake can change everything. For me, I take that as a wake up a little bit. It can happen to me, as well. I'm a champion and I can lose.... It's when you don't see it coming. You never know what can happen. The moment someone seems invincible, sometimes that's when they fail. It's a crazy sport that we're into. One mistake can change everything. I believe there's no certainty. There's never a certainty. This thing happened, and it shakes you up a little bit and makes you [think], 'Shoot, this thing can happen to me.' But, I don't want it to happen to me, so I'm going to work hard."
-- Georges St. Pierre is no stranger to jaw-dropping (technical) knockout losses, getting turned inside-out by Matt Serra at UFC 69 in April 2007 in what is often considered the biggest upset in mixed martial arts (MMA). St. Pierre would ultimately win back his Welterweight title 12 months later, but rest assured, "Rush" learned a very important lesson that fateful night in Houston, Texas. And he was reminded about the perils of the sport when he watched (right here) fellow pound-for-pound legend, Anderson Silva, get finished by Chris Weidman at UFC 162 in devastating fashion earlier this month. St. Pierre recently discussed the situation (via MMAFighting.com), telling reporters that he is painfully aware that his 170-pound championship reign can end at any moment. And it could be as soon as UFC 167 when he collides with heavy-handed Johny Hendricks at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 16, 2013. However, the careful French Canadian, who hasn't scored a true finish inside the Octagon since the Serra rematch more than five years ago, now plans to work extra hard to ensure that he doesn't end up squished like "The Spider." Will "Big Rig" get his mitts on St. Pierre or will he coast to another dominant decision ... or neither?
