Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre gave his first real interview with the media recently and talked about all kinds of hot topics in MMA.
Pierre talked about his role in the sport, as a ‘good guy’ and said that if every fighter was like him than the sport would be very boring.
He also pointed out that he enjoys the ‘bad guys’ of MMA, the Conor McGregors and Tito Ortizs of the sports.
Check it out!
“If you talk to Tito Ortiz, he’s a very nice guy. It’s just that some guys, when they fight another guy they need to put in emotions to give themselves the extra energy to fight. I don’t need to do that. I don’t work like this, emotionally. I don’t need to hate my opponent. Some guys I dislike more than others, and some I like more. I try not to get attached to them. I don’t need to be disrespectful or saying anything. But, some guys that is what they do. They need to do that. It doesn’t mean they are a bad person.
“Like Conor Mcgregor, very nice guys, the nicest guy in the world if you meet him. Tito Ortiz, same thing. Chael Sonnen, same thing. But, their characters, when they fight someone they like to put some animosity to promote the fight. And that is good, if everybody would be like me, it would be a very boring sport. It would be the most boring sport in the world. And if everyone was bad, then it would be bad, too. We need to have different personalities.”
