The win was GSP’s seventh straight title defense and his fifth straight victory via unanimous decision.
St-Pierre has been criticized by many as being a “boring” or a “safe” fighter for not pushing harder to finish opponents inside the cage.
During last nights post-fight press conference, ‘Rush’ told the gathered media that yes he isn’t someone who can easily finish opponents but he lays it all on the line every time he fights.
“This time in the Octagon I had a blast tonight. I was getting hit, it was painful but I had a lot of fun. I love my job. Thanks to everyone for the support.”
“I don’t care what the critics say. I fought, I gave everything I had tonight. I am like I am, I used my body the best that I can. I don’t have the knockout power of a ‘Rampage’ Jackson. I don’t have the athletic ability of a Jon Jones. I don’t have the accuracy of a Anderson Silva. I don’t have the wrestling of a Chael Sonnen.”
“But I use my body, the tools that I have as best as I can and that is why I win in a fight. It is not always about the muscle, the mind, I use the tools as best as I can to win the fight to fight for the fan and put on a good show.”
UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit took place on Nov. 17, 2012 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
