"I want to finish Diaz, but trust me I use the best tools I have. I do not have the power of Rampage Jackson, Anderson Silva's tenacity, I use the best skills I have and give everything I've got into a fight. And it makes me sad when fans complain. My last fight in Toronto, I know it was not good. Some nights it happens, things do not go the way you want. And it happens to everybody, it happens with Anderson Silva, with great fighters ... You train hard, have a great camp, but on fight night things do not go as planned and that's what happened in Toronto." - Georges St. Pierre via media scrum
UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre desperately wants to stop the durable Nick Diaz inside the Octagon at UFC 158.
St. Pierre has not finished an opponent since his TKO victory over B.J Penn at UFC 94 almost four years ago.
Finishing Diaz, however, might be easier said than done. The former Strikeforce welterweight champion has only been stopped once in his MMA career, and that was back in 2002 after fighting three opponents in one night.
Fans often blame St. Pierre's inability to finish on his safe fighting style contrived by coach Greg Jackson, which heavily utilizes his unparalleled MMA wrestling.
St. Pierre has been highly vocal about his desire to start finishing opponents and making exciting fights for the fans.
UFC 158 is scheduled for March 16 inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
