'Rush' to judgement: St. Pierre picks Florian over Penn in fighting and in life

Props: MMAWeekly


"I've trained with him two times and he looked really sharp. I put my money on him against B.J. Penn. Kenny Florian is a great training partner, and is going to be a great champion, and he's also a greater person and human being (than B.J. Penn)."

Current UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre picks Kenny Florian as the new lightweight champion on August 8 when "KenFlo" battles current 155-pound Kingpin BJ Penn at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA. "Rush" apparently hasn't warmed up to "The Prodigy" as a person (must be all that grease-related stuff) and as such, picks Florian as the better fighter -- and human being. Can't we all just get along? I guess not, or there would be no reason for this sport in the first place.
