Reigning UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre discusses his upcoming title defense against top contender Jon Fitch at UFC 87: Seek and Destroy on August 9th in the above video courtesy of ESPN. St. Pierre also touches on how he plans on actually successfully making a title defense this time around and how Fitch doesn’t have anyone at this camp (San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy) that will be able to put the kind of pressure on him during training that St. Pierre intends to put on him during the fight.
I’m also not sure how these rumors got started, probably because of his relationship with Affliction Clothing as a sponsor, but with only two fights remaining on his current deal with the UFC, many were speculating that St. Pierre would opt to leave the company after his contract was up. St. Pierre refuted those rumors on MMA Weekly Radio last night, stating that his management team is currently in talks with the UFC about an extension and that he “would like to retire with the UFC” as well.
