Ronda Rousey criticizes fellow UFC Champ Georges St-Pierre for frustrating to watch fighting style.


By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

New UFC Women's Champion Ronda Rousey has never been one to keep opinions to herself, and in a new interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, Rousey set her sights on UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre.

"I respect Georges St. Pierre as a businessman and an athlete," Rousey said. "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."

Rousey also uses St-Pierre to attack one criticism she herself has received, that her looks have gotten her to where she is more than anything.

"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?'" Rousey stated incredulously. "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."

Penick's Analysis: St-Pierre's style hasn't pleased everyone, and he's certainly gotten more risk averse over the years, but he's still the best fighter the welterweight division's ever seen. He's capable of doing more than he's done in the cage as of late, sure, but it's a little much to say he'd be "really unknown" without his looks. There's definitely something to be said for that aspect, as he's been able to be a poster boy and get more exposure than others because of it, but I don't think he'd be "really unknown" otherwise if everything else was identical. Still, it's fair for Rousey to feel the way she does in response to her own critics, and she clearly is one of those who doesn't care for St-Pierre's in-cage stylings.

And as a Canadian, I don't think anyone from Canada would call GSP "really Canadian".

Ohh, she went to a no no place. When she beats half of the amount of guys GSP has, then she can open her yap about that, As much as I love Honda, until I see otherwise (in the cage) she is still a good looking one trick pony with a donated belt.

So if GSP wasn't Canadian, good looking, possibly the most well rounded MMA fighter on the planet, athletic, unstoppable and nice guy he would have nothing going for him because hasn't had finishes lately. Gotcha Rhonda.

Rhonda is not very smart. Great fighter, and I like her personality, and yes, she's young and supposed to be ignorant... but she's obviously not a genius.

I'd also like to see how much Ronda fights to defeat her opponents when someone stops her trips and forces her to stand and trade, even though that will likely never happen.

I'm an English-speaking Canadian and I consider French-Canadians equally Canadian, although some don't.  

But it would be very difficult for any French-Canadian to be considered "really Canadian".  The French-Canadian culture is just different.

I once got the shit kicked out of me because I spoke English in a bar  in hickville Quebec. I once got kicked out of a bar for speaking French in Prince George. Go figure.

GSP's last fight was very exciting, from condit getting up after the end of a round a bloody mess, to GSP getting rocked, almost turning the fight upside down on a bitchs head, add Joe Rogans enthusiastic play by play and we have one of the best fights of the year.

She obviously has crush on GSP.

She sounds like she would hate-fuck gsp wildly. This woman seems to enjoy talking about him.
