From MMA Junkie:
"Growing up in my career, I always fix my goals very high," he said. "And every time I achieve one of my [goals], I fix another goal to reach. It's important as a martial artist [never to be] satisfied because otherwise there is no point to keep doing what you're doing."
"If one day I fight at 185 pounds for a superfight to know who is the best pound-for-pound in the world, (and) if I reach my goal, then my goal will be reached," St-Pierre said. "There will be no point for me to still compete because I'm not going to have a goal left."
"The fame is the same thing. I didn't have it in the beginning, and now I have it. But if one day I reach my goal of becoming the best pound-for-pound (fighter) of all-time, it will be time for me to retire. But I don't know right now, at 29 years old, if I want to retire. So it's better I have to stick around."
There's a word for this kind of musing out loud: hubris.
St. Pierre really ought to be focusing his mind on his rematch with Josh Koscheck and not daydreaming out loud about being the P4P best in the world.
Personally, I'm much more interested in Anderson Silva moving up to LHW and facing Shogun Rua than I am in watching him fight GSP, but clearly I'm in the minority on that one.
