UFC Quick Quote: Someday, someone will beat George St. Pierre and 'Rush' will be forgotten

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

Who will be the brave soul that dethrones George St. Pierre from the top of the welterweight mountain? While “Rush” doesn’t have a name in mind, he does recognize that eventually he will be defeated ... again.

"I always want to fight the best guy, but there's so many guys coming up. They're all calling me because I'm the champion, so I'm the target for them. I have the crown. One day, one guy [will] beat me; he's going to have the crown, so it won't be me anymore. People forget a little bit. I don't believe I will still be as famous as I am now, because I'm the champion and have the spotlight. One day I will retire. I will go away and after maybe three years people will start to forget a little bit. Some people will still recognize me. It won't be as much."

Current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has been ruling the 170-pound division for the last six years, dominating foe after foe, night in and night out. But it won't last forever, something "Rush" is well aware of as he declared during yesterday's (July 30, 2013) UFC Word Tour press conference in Los Angeles, California (via MMA Fighting). Indeed, the French-Canadian isn't blind to the fact that sooner or later, he will lose his coveted 170-pound strap -- and perhaps even his fame -- much like Anderson Silva did at UFC 162 to Chris Weidman after running roughshod over the middleweight division for seven years. "The Spider" somewhat predicted his demise before his clash against "All American," in Las Vegas, Nevada, so is St. Pierre doing the same ahead of his "Sin City" collision against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Nov. 16, 2013?
