Video: Leonard Garcia Says GSP is ‘Like a Girl When it Comes to Heights’

(Video courtesy of YouTube/FightHubTV)

When fans criticize fighters for shoddy performances, they often forget that the men and women who compete in the cage and often display superhuman feats of strength and resilience are human beings and not just machines that are packed away in the closet between fights. They have problems just like everyone else.

Even though some of us realize this, it’s always surprising to hear stories about things these tough guys (and girls) can’t do or are afraid of.

Case in point, Georges St-Pierre is afraid of heights according to Leonard Garcia, who breaks the first rule of training: You don’t talk about what happens in training.

“You know what was crazy is the first time I met Georges we went on a run in the mountain and Georges is afraid of heights. Nobody knows this. He’s like a girl when it comes to heights. And part of the run takes us on the edge of the mountain where you can safely run, but right off that edge right there it’s a drop. He’s behind me and he’s runnin’ and hes callin’ my name. I was like, ‘What?! Georges is callin’…why is he callin’ me?’ And he’s like, ‘Hey man, can I grab the back of your shirt when we’re running?’ I was like, ‘What?! Why would you want to grab the back of my shirt when we’re runnin’?”Garcia recalls with a chuckle. “And he was tryin’ to tell me, ‘The height…The height.’ I was like, ‘The height? You’re afraid of heights.’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ It’s a funny story. He was like holdin’ onto the back of my shirt and we finished out the run and he’s like, ‘Don’t tell nobody about this.’ And here I am doin’ an interview about it.”

At least he recognizes that what he’s doing is offside. Garcia did have some praise for the UFC welterweight champ after throwing him under the bus for being a pussy.

Georges is a good dude. He’s a big time superstar. Not only because he held the back of my shirt when we ran, but afterwards he was like, ‘All you guys, I’m gonna take you out. We’ll all go out to eat and stuff. He’s just an all-around good person. He’s real, real cool and he doesn’t make you feel like it’s Georges St-Pierre. He’s a superstar. He’s just a regular guy and you get in there and you watch him train and you see it’s the stuff that he can do as well,” Garcia explains. “He just takes it to a whole other level even in training. Just being around guys like that makes you want to be a lot better. That’s what he’s good at. He’s good at bringing that to the gym. He wants everybody to do as good as he’s doin’, so he’s a great guy to have around.”

It probably also isn’t terrible to have him around at the club, since he probably turns down more women than all of the guys at Jackson’s have dated and they have to rebound from the rejection with someone, right?

GRIN. You might agree, if Richard Pryor can make albums (yeah vinyl) with the title "That Niggers Crazy" or Mencia can play on race...why can't anyone here since this entertainment?

'I like Garcia…but there is something patently wrong when hearing a beaner with a redneck accent.' God damn Xeno, you are a funny mother fucker.

You know you sure have lots of advice...I don't think many people here - editors included mind that the users have grammar as bad as Seth or Danga.
Since I'm not taken seriously by you, and you are authoritative do use all a favor.
Use you clout to get the "EDIT" button re-enabled. That way I can fix all my fucked up errors that get posted.
Whopper Junior - you forgot the "hear vs. here" and the "its vs it's." As in, I hear - it's time - for you - 2 to complain that I used a number and a symbol instead of the # too.

Jizzninja refers to the art of jizzin in a twat and vanishing back into the shadows, much like your fathers probably did after they sobered up and saw they fucked your slutty ass mothers. Merry Christmas you fatherless fucks!

I think we all know about all know about GSP turning away women. Dana White even said he's cool with it.

AND IT'S FUCKING "SHOULD HAVE SAID", not "should of", YOU FUCKING IDIOT. Pull your head out of your ass.

*every one's.

Listen up, dickweed - I'll bring it down to street level so that a teenager like you might pick up what I'm saying to you, big-picture style: if you want to hack on something or someone, more power to you. The reason I destroy you for low level grammar or punctuation is to show you that nobody is ever going to take you seriously if you can't figure out the difference between words like your/you're or their/there/they're. If you can't write a sentence, how the fuck can I expect you to say anything worth paying attention to?

Where would we be without some cunt that wants to spend the day correcting every ones writing skills? You know the movie, then maybe I should of said Broke Back Cerrone Cowboy.
Angry Whopper- December 23, 2011 at 1:11 pm
God damn it, Xeno. Never, ever use an apostrophe to indicate a plural as you did when you said "...American's are all AFU." That indicates a possessive, as in 'The American's illiteracy.'

Also, get your shit together when you reference a movie. Deliverance? Please - GSP and Garcia aren't running in the bayou, they're on a mountain. Maybe Brokeback Mountain would have been the better homo reference there.

Apply yourself. Read a book, watch the movie Rudy to get some inspiration, and see if you can come back with a half-decent hack on somebody without any grammar or punctuation mistakes.

It has been shown that there are only two fears people are born with and the rest are learned, mostly irrational fears.

The two are the fear of loud noises and the fear of falling.
It's a good idea to be scared of heights. That way, you'll NEVER fall off the edge, ever!

I wish I had that fear, cuz I almost fucked it all up a few times.
XENOPHON- December 23, 2011 at 11:30 am
...I like Garcia...but there is something patently wrong when hearing a beaner with a redneck accent. No wonder many foreigners think American's are all AFU.
XENOPHON- December 23, 2011 at 11:21 am not so convinced that a fear of heights was the prime reason that GSP was grabbing the boys shirt, and following so close behind. Something about being isolated with another man, in the mountains is causing me to remember the movie Deliverance.
Maybe that's just me...

georges only turns down the white girls. he loves him some chocolate.
wait a minute..... jizzninja? isn't that like cum commando or spunk soldier? and you are talking about people being scared of pussy? maybe i am just confused. lol
GistoftheFist- December 23, 2011 at 10:56 am
Right jizzninja, because a Hulk Hogan's wife is exactly what GSP needs.
jizzninja- December 23, 2011 at 10:04 am
he probably turns down the women because he's scared of pussy.he then runs and hangs onto garcia's hog to feel safe.
