Worst Idea Ever: Dorky NY Comedian Challenges GSP to Fight on His Cable Access Show

Comedian Chris Gethard (imagine having that surname in high school) appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to issue a challenge to injured UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre to fight him on his New York cable access television show.

According to Gethard, facing a big profile name like St-Pierre could propel him to superstardom if he manages to pull of a win like his fellow New Yorker Matt Serra did against the dominant champ.

“Let’s think of it this way, I’m just a regular dude. When I walked out here all these people were like, ‘Who? Who is that?’ Imagine if a guy just like me manages to beat the champ,” Gethard told Fallon. “It will be just like ‘Rocky.’ Gethard is the new Rocky, man. Like Micky Ward.”

All he has to do is say he thinks St-Pierre is a chicken and is ducking him and he’s have the fight. Ask Nick Diaz.

This isn’t the first time Gethard, (pronounced “geth-erd”) has publicly called out a celebrity. In 2010 he campaigned via Twitter to persuade Shawn “P-Diddy” Combs to appear on his show. 13 months later Combs agreed and guested on the show last January. While it’s unlikely that GSP will accept Gethard’s challenge unless he wants a homicide on his record, there’s a good chance that “Rush” will make a stop in New York to be on the show if the campaign takes off.

If you want to see the “fight” happen, you can send a Tweet to GSP’s official Twitter account with the homoertotic hashtag #GSPGethard. Be prepared to be ridiculed by your friends, though.

Alternatively, you could use #GethardDeathwish.

Check out a sample of Gethard’s brand of comedy below.

actually, I've changed my mind. Dick Gethard is too awesome of a name to be wasted on just any old person. If these Big Dick pills I've been chugging actually work I'm gonna change my name to Dick Gethard and do porn with Carmen.

To be honest, Gethard is a name that could be pretty awesome in high school too. I guess it depends on what kind of personality you have (i.e. NERD). If this guy ever manages to artificially inseminate a woman and has a boy he should name him Richard.

@Carmen; but do you think he could finish you?

Also, he wants to make it in his field but his dad is clearly better at it, he's the Ryan Coture of comedy.

dillweed- January 4, 2012 at 8:12 pm
if it was a 5 rounder gsp would likely finish him in the 4th, c'mon guys get real... in a 3 rounder I see your point, but if it's for the strap gsp finishes this guy in the 4th

"If you tell GSP he has to fight Condit or you tell him he has to fight Diaz...all of the sudden he's hurt. But I'm sure he will magically heal if you offer him Gethard"

Im guessing this guy saw some of GSP's fights and liked the idead of Georges laying on him for 25 minutes.
