A Martial Artist or a Fighter?

“There is a difference between a fighter and a martial artist. A fighter is training for a purpose, he has a fight. I'm a martial artist.  I don't train for a fight, I train for myself. I'm training all the time. My goal is perfection, but I will never reach perfection.”  - Georges St-Pierre

Georges St-Pierre successfully defended his UFC Welterweight title today.  His opponent attempted to lure him into a brawl, but he prevailed by fighting as a martial artist.  Georges St-Pierre lives his life as a martial artist and that is why he is the greatest welterweight in the world.
