UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, spoke to mmafighting.com about his critics claiming he has been a boring fighter for a while.
“Towards the end, I didn’t have the drive anymore. I was doing it because I had to do it. I didn’t have fun anymore. I lost a little bit of the love for the sport.
