Nick Diaz and Georges St-Pierre become cops…
Though their bout at UFC 158 was a fairly predictable affair with St Pierre cruising to a unanimous decision over the former Strikeforce champ, the most entertaining portion was most certainly the pre-fight press conference where Diaz and St Pierre verbally sparred back and forth in one of the most memorable pressers in recent history.
So what would happen if Georges St Pierre and Nick Diaz were to work together as police officers in a buddy cop feature?
Well comedian Pouya Rebek made this possible in a pair of episodes of his animated series “Mixed Martial Animations” which he both voiced and wrote.
In this two part feature Georges St Pierre and Nick Diaz play the parts of two cops on the beat. While the pair drives downtown discussing who Georges St Pierre has a crush on and why Nick Diaz decided to become a cop, they comes across a suspicious looking Alistair Overeem who is seen trying to sell some children Crocodile meat in a hilarious and awkward situation.
In an interview with ‘Verbal Tapout’, Pouya shared how long it takes for him to perfect a voice.
“Before I record for a video, I listen to some audio of the fighter talking for about 10 to 20 minutes just to let their voice sink into my brain. I have done 40 or so different voices but I feel like I only have a few voices perfect. There are times when I listen to recordings of my Nate Diaz, Rampage Jackson and GSP impersonations and I feel like the voices are basically perfect.”
