I want to take him out. I want to finish him, but when you look for the knockout sometimes it doesn’t come, so I have to be smart. I’m going to have to fight my fight and take him out of his comfort zone, and by doing so he is going to make a mistake. The fight will end when he makes his first mistake.
I see fighting like a mathematics problem. When you have a mathematics problem you have a formula that you use to solve the problem. Dan Hardy is a problem, and I’m going to have to figure out which formula I’m going to use during the fight to solve the problem and that’s how it is... I think it’s also a question of statistics. If I fight against his strengths, my chances of winning diminish. If I fight against his weaknesses, my chances of winning go up.
Right now I’m about 190lbs. I’m bigger and I’m getting even bigger than I was, more powerful, and more explosive. I hit much harder. We have been working on a lot of different stuff to make me hit harder and to give me more power on my strikes. It’s going to change a lot of things.
I’m not satisfied about my ratio of knockouts. I have knockouts, but I want to bring my ratio up. I’m more powerful than I was, and by being more powerful I’m faster as well. Power is strength and speed together.
--Georges St. Pierre, talks to tapology about his methodical approach on solving his 'mathematical problem'. He's now an even bigger, faster, and more skilled version of him, and considering how great as he has looked recently, that's a scary scary thought indeed.
