In a hyper-macho sport like mixed martial arts, it takes a lot for anyone to admit raw emotions overcoming them. So it’s rather powerful to hear UFC welterweight champion open up about having to pull out of his fight:
“I’m not going to lie, I cried yesterday. I had a ton of pressure falling off my shoulders, because for the last few days I was in the mindset that I was nervous for the fight. I was excited for the fight but I was also nervous to know if I was going to be able to fight.
St. Pierre about his rehab:
“Now all the pressure is off, I feel much better. I’m going to do some rehab, maybe take a vacation because I went through a lot. It’s not only the fight, it’s all the training camp, I went through a lot of stuff. I need to reset the whole thing again and I’ll be ready for the next one.”
