UFC Quick Quote: One too many pina coladas for St. Pierre?

"He didn't train as much as he should, because he was too busy doing other things than training and fighting. He won the title, he's a kid, he was 25 years old. Let's just say he partied a little bit too much."

-- Stephane Patry, the former manager for one-time UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, claims in the Canadian Press that "Rush" was busy partying rather than training for his first title defense against Matt Serra at UFC 69, which he lost in the first round via technical knockout. St. Pierre has a different take on the matter, revealing that his father was suffering from a brain ailment and his young cousin was in a coma. Regardless, St. Pierre claims that one thing is certain for his upcoming fight with Josh Koscheck at UFC 74: "Respect" on August 25: he is ready to make an excuse-free statement when the two meet in Las Vegas. And maybe then he can kick-back a few Pina Coladas.
