UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre has been highly criticized for playing it safe and not finishing fights many believe he can.
The champ has gone to the judges scorecards in nine of his 18 UFC bouts. His last four fights have gone to a decision and many critics are not only blaming St-Pierre himself, but pointing the finger at his coach, Greg Jackson.
Former Welterweight kingpin, Matt Hughes, was on The MMA Hour recently and he let his feelings be heard.
“My one criticism with Georges is I wish the guy would finish more people because I know he has the ability to. He’s the best guy I’ve ever fought. I just wish he would go out there and do that to everybody else the way he made me feel. I’m not being mean, I’m, just being very honest.”
Hughes is not the only person who feels that way, in fact, “Rush” himself does as well. In a recent interview with the New York Post he said that he wants to do better.
“I agree with the criticism. I want to do better. I want to give more entertainment to the fans. I’ve been training to jump more on opportunities that are open to me. I’m still gonna fight my fight, but I’m going to be more opportunistic.”
St-Pierre will look to start on November 17, as he faces the UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154.
