UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre thoughts on taking UFC 79 fight with Matt Hughes on short notice


"What I gain is that I can beat Hughes and show I'm the best in the world, and then I'll get Serra. I was going to fight both of them eventually but now it's just in a different order. After Hughes, I will get my revenge on Serra. It is the perfect scenario for me.... It's the biggest fight of my career."

-- Former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre tells about the thought process behind taking a fight with Matt Hughes at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on short notice. "Rush" was already in line for a title shot if he wanted to wait for reigning division champ Matt Serra to heal from a back injury. Now he will fight Hughes for the interim 170-pound belt.
