GSP responds to Steven Seagal: 'I am a martial artist'


Striking and somewhat boyishly handsome looking action film star, musician, philanthropist, environmentalist, animal rights activist, producer, writer, guitarist, reserve deputy sheriff, and 7th-dan black belt in Aikido Steven Seagal GSP-good-not-great-Id-fight-Randy-Couture-no-rules/">appeared recently on Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour, and offered his opinion on UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

"I think he is a good fighter and a good martial artist; would I call him great? No," said Seagal, or 'Fritão' as he known among his fighting Brazilian brothers. "If you look at GSP's worst fight, you look at the thing he did with Shields in Canada, that was atrocious. I think that is very telling. I just didn't think the technique and the fighting skill was there in that instance. I also saw him after the fight and he wasn't looking or feeling very well either, which does have some meaning. I think he got hurt in that fight and whether he dominated him or not, I just didn't think he looked good."

Now GSP responds.

"Many people say that I am a great artist, but not a great fighter," said St-Pierre. "I often come back from adversity. I showed it to BJ Penn in the first fight and also in my last fight. I took a kick to the head and I came back, and I do it often. Of course you cannot show it in a fight, because it is not good to get hurt. It's better when you hit the guy and not when he hits you. But sometimes you have to go through this punishment and that's what happened in my last fight. But I think after this fight I showed that I am a martial artist, I have the spirit of a fighter, and when I get hurt, I come back stronger. Carlos Condit gave me a big kick to the head in that fight, and it was all worth it. I think that was the hardest blow I ever took in my whole career."

I think the problem is their being Brazilian means they don't know what a fucking joke he is in English speaking countries. Here in Central America people have never even seen him before, and yet everybody knows Van Damme, Arnold and Sly.

"I have the spirit of a fighter, and when I get hurt, I come back stronger"Since when does a martial artist tap when he's perfectly conscious and about his wits? And what does going to a sports psychologist after getting your ass knocked out have to do with the spirit of a fighter? lol it's the spirit of an athlete.
