Ronda Rousey: “GSP is a boring pretty boy”

(“You’re next, you fight ducking biatch!”)

Ronda Rousey is moving up a few shit talking divisions, moving on from soft targets like Kim Kardashian to welterweight champion Georges St Pierre:

“I respect Georges St. Pierre as a businessman and an athlete. I don’t have anything against him personally. But he’s not the kind of fighter I like watching. He fights to win matches. He doesn’t fight to defeat his opponents. I lost a lot of judo matches because of points fighters. It was extremely frustrating for me. And when I see that same style being played out in a different sport, it brings out the same reaction in me.”

“Everybody keeps coming up to me and saying, ‘Oh, do you think if you didn’t look such a way, people would like you so much?’ I’m like, ‘Dude, if GSP was butt ugly, you wouldn’t want to know who he is so much.’ I think he lucked out a lot that he’s Canadian. I love Canadians. They are the coolest, nicest, most patriotic people, and they will support their countrymen no matter what, and I think that’s commendable. But if GSP wasn’t really good-looking, and really Canadian, he would be really unknown.”

There’s a lot of talk lately in MMA about the difference between ‘fighters’ and ‘athletes.’ It sounds like Ronda Rousey thinks Georges is more athlete than fighter.
