GSP wants a nerd Girlfriend because he’s secretly a nerd

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre (20-2) shocked ESPN Lynn Hoppes as he revealed  a side that most would never imagine from the dominating champ. He explains that he in fact is a nerd, into paleontology, psychology, art museums etc. Here’s the interview.

GSP:
“I don’t like to tell people that very much, but I am,” said the 170-pound, 5-foot-10 Canadian who has been a pro fighter for eight years. “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.”

Interviewer:
Uh, what?

GSP:

“Seriously, I’m into paleontology. That’s the study of prehistoric life. I’m into philosophy. And psychology, too,” said St. Pierre, who was in Bristol, Conn., Monday to film a TV commercial. “You know that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was found with feathers? Yes, feathers!”

Interviewer:
Uh, what?

GSP:

“You know why we play sports? It’s because it goes back to days when we used to fight in the battlefields. We are war-like. It’s deep inside us,” continued the UFC welterweight champion. “Sports today is the modern way to make war. We’re just more civilized.”

Interviewer:
Uh, what?

GSP:
“When I train, I love to take time off and fly to the Natural History Museum or an exhibition. I just love that,” said St. Pierre, who lives in Montreal. “When you know your past, it will help you with your future.”

Interviewer:
OK, well …

GSP:
“That’s why most of my friends are not fighters. Most of my friends are nerds like me,” he said. “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.”
