A fighter with so many credentials, one might think fighting is something St-Pierre enjoyed. But that is not the case.

In the interview, Georges also talked about his personality and his approach to fights. Georges said, “I have two personalities. I have one, the one that is talking to you right now. It’s Georges St-Pierre, he’s a nice guy, he tries to be a good role model, he doesn’t like to fight, he loves freedom, his lifestyle. But there’s another person I can become sometimes during training when I hit the pads. My body and my memory. I remember the mechanic of my movement, and when that happens, it turns on something in my brain that I become a different kind of person.”

UFC recently inducted Georges St-Pierre in the UFC Hall of Fame. During the event, St-Pierre to UFC President Dana White, said, “I made a joke to Dana, during the Hall of Fame ceremony, I told him that if you really want me to come back, just hide somewhere and wait that I’m in the middle of training and come with a contract and offer me a fight. Because if you come before or after, for sure I will not accept it.”
