GSP talks about his near-loss and his future...
Georges St-Pierre recently discussed his current status, his fight with Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 and more. Check out the highlights:
On his ACL surgery: "I had the same procedure on my right knee, and my leg came back stronger. I will have two good knees, so it will be a good thing."
On the welterweight division as it currently stands: "I'm very happy and very excited, and my friend and training partner Rory MacDonald is part of that group, and I think he is going to be champion...It's true – it is the most exciting time, because they have a lot of different contenders. It's a lot of new guys – they're not veterans. I mean, some of them are veterans that were not there before, so it's a lot of new faces."
On his future: "I've been doing this for a long time, since I was 19. I'm 33 now. When I fought (Carlos) Condit, I was very hungry. I was very happy to be there. I wanted to do it a lot. (Nick) Diaz, a little bit less. And the last training camp I had with (Johny) Hendricks, I didn't have the same motivation. It went down, and I need to get back to that feeling of hunger. I need to get the motivation back. It's hard, because it's always the same routine, the same thing. And I need to fix some things in my life to make it more efficient. Once everything can be done, maybe I'll come back. We'll see how it goes. But I can't say yes, I can't say no, because I just don't know right now."
