Georges St. Pierre Is A Self-Proclaimed Nerd

“I don’t like to tell people that very much, but I am. I don’t really watch sports. I watch the Canadian version of the Discovery Channel. Ask me a question about the Jurassic period or the Cretaceous period and I probably could answer it… Seriously, I’m into paleontology. That’s the study of prehistoric life. I’m into philosophy. And psychology too. You know that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was found with feathers? Yes, feathers! … When I train, I love to take time off and fly to the Natural History Museum or an exhibition. I just love that. When you know your past, it will help you with your future… That’s why most of my friends are not fighters. Most of my friends are nerds like me. That’s why I have a hard time finding a girlfriend. I need someone to talk science with. I’m married to my work right now. But you never know. One day I could wake up and just do something different. Life is so unpredictable.”

—Georges St. Pierre telling ESPN.com he likes dinosaurs more than sports

Sorry guys, but GSP’s nerd status was about the most interesting news I could find this morning. Well, unless you want to hear for the hundredth time that Fedor’s future with Strikeforce will be decided soon (maybe even today). Or that Dave Batista is “close” to signing with Strikeforce. Or that Jake Shields injured his back 12 weeks ago (he’s fine now says his camp).

    Lol, no wonder he was bullied as a child. I would have never thought this as I would see pictures of him with girls in vegas, linked romanticly with mandy more and modeling for a calendar. Oh well, he is still bad ass. After he beats koshcheck you should say, “you got beat by a nerd” (in his accent).

    Power of the cranium…!!

    GSP should have a sit-down with Matt Horwich lol, another alternative genius fighter. Could discuss the sub-atomics of a clinch slam & the subsequent paragdigm shift of side control… aka Riddum

  • Miguel Pereira

    LOL! No Doubt…Matt Horwich is right now the biggest character in MMA.
