Georges St Pierre: My wrestling is not good enough for the Olympics

Undisputed UFC Welterweight King Georges St Pierre has probably the best wrestling skills in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Georges St Pierre stated before that he considers making his Olympic debut for Canadian wrestling team, but it looks like "Rush" is in another state of mind for now:

“At the moment I don’t think my Wrestling is good enough to be on the Olympics. The drop I use on MMA and the drop I use on Olympic Wrestling are totally different. It’s a different sport”, explains GSP. "If I had to do it I’d have to dedicate all my time for it, I’d have to dedicate a year and a half and I don’t want to retire (on MMA) now. I’d have to give up my title, of course”

Georges St Pierre will face British fighter Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy at UFC 111 in his fourth title defense since defeating Matt "The Terror" Serra at UFC 83 in Montreal.

    I agree I don't get how this is news, he has said this since the day after people blew his comment about future aspirations out of proportions. But I guess the price you pay for MMA becoming a mainstream sport is that you now have to deal with the retarded mainstream media.
