Georges says it is business…
- Georges St-Pierre recently spoke about tomorrow's fight with Nick Diaz. Here are the highlights…
On Playing Mind Games: "I play a bit of a mind game, but I never talk about it because it's one of my tricks," St-Pierre says. "Now that you said it, I'm sure other people will hear it and ask me questions about it. Unfortunately, I won't be able to answer. It's part of my strategy."
On Diaz's Skills: "He's very, very skilled," St-Pierre says. "He's very good at controlling the distance and the pace of the fight. He presents lots of problems, but I'm going to solve them."
On Things Not Being Personal: "It's not personal; it's professional," St-Pierre says. "It's not the first guy that's been disrespectful to me. Lots of other guys have tried to get into my head. ... Just about anybody I've fought other than Jake Shields and maybe Carlos Condit, they've all been very disrespectful with me, so I'm kind of used to that. Nick got under my skin, but a lot of people have got under my skin. But that's when I perform the best."
