Georges St-Pierre: Ronda Rousey Is Very Good But He Has a Hard Time Watching Women Fight


2013 will mark the first time that women will more than likely grace the UFC Octagon, starting with current Strikeforce champion Ronda Rousey.

As he heads into his fight at UFC 154 on Saturday night, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre talks about the arrival of the ladies to the UFC.

St-Pierre is quick to point out that he’s not comfortable watching women’s fights, and never has been, but he respects fighters like Ronda Rousey and other women who compete in MMA.

“It’s good for her,” St-Pierre said about Rousey’s arrival in the UFC. “I’m happy for the girls that fight, but me personally I have a hard time watching the girls fight.

“It’s the way I grew up maybe, the mentality, I’m different, I’m old school, but I have a hard time watching girls fighting, it’s hard for me.”

Check out the rest of St-Pierre’s comments in the video below:
