"The toughest fight of my career was against Thomas Denny. I was really sick that day and just getting into the ring was a challenge. I even asked my corner to throw in the towel and my cornerman said: I don’t have a towel so you have to fight. That made me so angry I came back to win!" - UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre talks about his toughest fight on his facebook account.
