GSP Hates Bullies and Fat Chicks

(Eat your heart out, fatty.)

If you’ve never heard the story of how Georges St-Pierre began taking karate to help him defend himself against the incessant bullying he endured as a child growing up in St. Isadore, Quebec, Yahoo!Sports has the backstory:

“I had a rough childhood, big problems. I didn’t have many friends growing up. I’m from a small town. I was an intellectual person. People who were friends with me were intellectuals, they were not popular either. They weren’t the hockey player that everyone wanted to be like,” he recalls. “I had an acne problem. I was just not dressing very well. I was not very popular with girls. I just wasn’t a popular guy. [Being bullied every day creates] a very hostile environment. You’re not going to school to learn, you’re going to school to survive. You’re really scared. You hate school because [afterward] you’re getting beat up. You don’t think about what the teacher is telling you, you’re thinking about running away when you hear the ringing of the bell. You need to get your books and get out of class and get to the bus before the kids catch you.”

In a nutshell, St-Pierre became good enough at karate that he started to get the better of his tormentors, even when facing 4-1 odds and he says the attacks eventually stopped.

“I became strong enough to defend myself,” St-Pierre says. “By 14, 15, nobody could touch me.”

Now the UFC welterweight champ, who is an anti-bullying advocate, says although life seems dismal when you’re at the receiving end of abuse it will get better and he’s proof positive of that fact.

“I don’t just want to help the kids who are bullied, I want the bullies to change their minds and know it is a bad thing to do. It goes both ways. Not everyone is able to fight back.  I know that. Things change. When you’re young you think everything will stay the same. It won’t. Everything will change. You just have to keep going,” he says. “I never got the chance to make my revenge on the kids that bullied me and I don’t want to do that now. Young kids do dumb things. I am not angry at [them]. I forgive [them].”

He points out that karma can be a bitch and that it was in the case of his attackers.

“St. Pierre was at a mall near Montreal a few years ago when he saw one of those kids who used to pummel him after class; who caused those sleepless nights; who tried to ruin his self-confidence in an effort to prop up his own. GSP was a world champ by then, rich, famous and more than capable of beating the guy silly. They were a long, long way from that school yard. As they passed each other, St. Pierre said he looked at the guy and nodded his head as a sign of recognition. He means it when he says he’s forgiven. The old bully just dropped his head, stared at his shoes and shuffled by.”

“There was a girl at my school, I won’t say her name, but she was the most popular girl, the prettiest girl,” recalls St-Pierre. “Everyone treated her like the queen of the school. Now she is fat and ugly.”

actually GSP doesnt hate Fat chicks, was probably just referring to that mean one in highschool that became fat, I recall GSP hugging a chubby girl after he defeated Matt Serra to become the UFC Undisputed Welterweight Champion in Montreal a few years back. . .

At least the fat chicks can lose weight, you guys are all stuck with ugly.

Purpledickmeat must be sudos kfc's latest attempt at reinventing himself along with his brother. although it is quite enjoyable to read some of the stupid shit that comes out of his mouth\keyboard, but the best is bongtar's replies to dickwheats comments, i actually laugh out loud ....sometimes
Bubbaduncan- April 28, 2011 at 9:08 am
I always laugh when I read GSP quotes because I hear that accent in my 'ead.

GSP is so happy in that picture because he FINALLY got his tub filled up with Fiji water.
dranokills- April 28, 2011 at 4:09 am
Hey purple I am another person that will tell you that you are a dumbass.
And I would squash you like a bug. You are no threat to Karma, you are a petty small minded retard who likes dickmeat.
You will find more people who will defend karma over your worthless ass.
You have been told to leave, and IM gonna tell you in my own special way......EAT A BAG OF DICKS!

Hmmmm ... once my new gym is done late summer, maybe I need to make it the new home of the CP Fight League and bring all you haters on in to see what you guys are really made of !!!! Really entertaining but really now .. who on here wouldn't love to see this played out for real in a cage with your asses locked inside !!!
BONGTAR- April 27, 2011 at 4:07 pm
i will not argue anymore, im done. apologies cp nation.
djp1988- April 27, 2011 at 3:57 pm
GSP is not impressed with that fat chicks performahns.
BONGTAR- April 27, 2011 at 3:54 pm
You got a little serious all of a sudden. You're losing your edge. Come on purpledickmeat, you were much funnier the other day ( burned me pretty good actually), but your lengthy response shows I'm under your skin, now THAT, makes me smile. Thanks for your time cupcake.
PERPATRAITOR- April 27, 2011 at 3:42 pm
Who are these women fighting in our comment section? Yall would both 69 each other vigerously, bet.
PurpleDickMeat- April 27, 2011 at 3:05 pm
Actually BONGTAR your offer to beat my ass came more like an invite to meet and fuck while your faggy little kids watched. I was quite offended and worried for your children at that point. I know that you are concerned for Karma seeing as how you are the two biggest bitches on this site. And instead of not reading my comments or just ignoring them you feel that because you disagree with me that you need to respond to validate YOUR opinions and revenge that cat fucker Karma... I'm sure he appreciates you ;). But seriously, I really do enjoy solving all of your grammatical error puzzles to see what you are really saying to me and the fact that you get soooo upset enough to the point that you are asking me where I live so you can fight/fuck me is completely hilarious! Messing with you brings a smile to my face, but unfortunately the mere thought of Karma is a total boner kill. If there was any man love for him I guarantee it would be flaccid. I'm sorry to tell you that I will NOT be "getting off *of CP" at this time. So until the next time you respond to me or get upset and comment, be sure to tell your bat-up-the-ass taking, literal sons of a BITCH kids hello for me.

I bet that hot chick from his school who is now a pig...I bet she is Italian. They can be so beautiful when young but they often transform into beasts when they get to their mid twenties...true right fellas...hairy fat wops.

BONGTAR- April 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Get off oc CP you fucking confused little pussy, who calls others a pussy from the comfor of his keyboard. I alreay offerd to beat your ass once, and you danced around, fuckin BEEOTCH!!!!
PurpleDickMeat- April 27, 2011 at 1:57 pm
The best and truest statement in that article was ".. karma can be a bitch..". FINALLY CagePotato you agree with me and countless other readers. Maybe now you can banish that cat fucking queer from your website or at the very least never let him write another article again. Fuck @KarmaAteMyCat you are a bitch, and now CP and GSP agree as well.

I only got bullied twice in school and they both died within ten years of graduating (one by speedball OD and the other ripped of bikers and got shot) Now I wonder if it's my super power to karmically kill bullies.
mustache revival- April 27, 2011 at 1:31 pm
halfbreed, gotcha, I beilieve the fat and ugly ones are called swamp donkey's, you know the types that in order to get laid they have to hang around bars until closing time, and then they pounce on the drunkest, most defenseless guy on his way out the door.
blackboxmma- April 27, 2011 at 1:26 pm
GSP was the intellectual person? Thats not the funny part of the story?
Payday- April 27, 2011 at 1:12 pm
GSP didn't extract revenge on his old bullies, but he did nut across the face of the fat chick and told her he wasn't impressed with her performance.
ArmFarmer- April 27, 2011 at 12:58 pm
Yeah I definitley just typed out a public service announcement lol.. true though.

Pretty stark contrast with Tim Sylvia, who was lobbying to fight all his childhood bullies for an entire season of Bully Beatdown.

I use to get bullied. It ate at me until one day I got fed up and swung on a kid. After that it was like an invisible barrier was broken, that first punch I threw opened the door to fighting and every time after it got easier and easier to the point that there was no fear or hesitation whatsoever. If someone said the wrong thing to me, they got hit. After a while I thought about what I was doing and realized that I had become what I hated. I was the one going around picking fights to boost my own self esteem, doing the same shit to other people. That was a shitty realization to come to, but I figured out what I was doing. I don't fight anymore.
