UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre is scared

Georges St Pierre

"I'm scared. I'm very nervous. I have butterflies, but I have to make my butterflies fly in formation."

-- An open and honest Georges St. Pierre reveals his emotions (common for just about every other fighter) during the final prefight press conference for UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre 2," which takes place later on this evening from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. "Rush" is a hometown MMA hero and is widely considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport. However, his mental toughness has often been questioned. That will all change with a win tonight -- the pressure on him right now must be insane.
