St. Pierre Responds To Pete Sell’s Comments

Georges St. PierreYou may recall a couple of weeks ago when UFC middleweight Pete “Drago” Sell made some disparaging remarks about the mental toughness of one Georges St. Pierre:

“GSP is an awesome athlete. He has all the tools to dominate but he is a mental midget — his mentality is very weak. …I don’t like the way he flip-flopped after the first fight with Serra. GSP was cool right after the fight but about 5 weeks afterwards he started making excuses saying he didn’t train properly, then GSP retracted and said Serra was the better man that night, well what was it? I don’t like how his story changed. I believe that all the pressure is on GSP, especially considering he is fighting in front of his countrymen… Matt Serra is all heart and GSP is the type of guy that if they were in a bar GSP would back down from a fight while Serra is down for whatever.”

St. Pierre has since responded to Sell’s comments during a recent interview with the Winnipeg Sun:

Q: One of Serra’s proteges, Pete Sell, recently called you a mental midget and said “GSP is the type of guy that if they were in a bar, GSP would back down from a fight while Serra is down for whatever.” What are your thoughts on that?

A: Of course I’m not going to fight in a club. It’s just not my thing. If it doesn’t involve me personally or my family, I will avoid it. I believe if you’re a good person and treat people nicely, that incident wouldn’t arise. I think those situations happen to people who are uncomfortable with themselves. Or try to look tough or act like fighters. You attract what you look like. I don’t have anything to prove. When I fight, I do it for a living.

I don’t think that St. Pierre has ever come off as the guy who would fight in the club, then again who in their right mind would pick a fight with GSP anyway?
