St-Pierre said: Diaz is a well-formed fighter, but his outstanding and incredible stamina are his strengths.An irritated St-Pierre could make errors that could open the gate for a disappointing conquest by Diaz.A tour south of Le Puy en Velay takes in Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille, Arlempdes, Issarlès and Mont Mézenc.
It is one of the most extraordinary sights in France, built within a volcanic cone on a series of rocks and basalt pillars, three of which are topped by churches or statues.
It became a holy city after the Bishop of Le Puy set off on one of the first pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela in 962, and built the Chapelle St-Michel d’Aguilhe when he returned.
From the summit of Mont Mézenc near the village of Moudeyres, there is a fantastic view over the whole of the Massif Central.
To the south-east the upper reaches of the Loire river arrive from Mount Gerbier-de-Jonc, carving a path through a mountain pass and a beautiful valley.
La Chaise-Dieu, a tiny village perched on a hill in the remote forest of the Parc Naturel Regional Livradois-Forez is famous for the abbey church of St Pierre, dating from the 14th century, an impressive building with a harmonious blend of Romanesque and Gothic architecture.
Most celebrated is the choir with its oak stalls carved with representations of vice and virtue, and its beautiful 16th century Flemish tapestries.
From Les Etables it is possible to drive within 20 minutes’ walk of the summit of Mont Mézenc to take in its fabulous view.
Georges St-Pierre has been more than just one of the great champs in mixed martial arts present.
St-Pierre said: Do you know how many times fighters have said things and tried to get into my head.
