Once upon a time, former NBA great Charles Barkley uttered the now infamous phrase 'I'm not a role model'.
The rotund rebound machine went on to say that just because he dunks a basketball doesn't mean he should raise your kids.
Well, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre may punch people in the face for a living, but according to UFC President Dana White, he's a perfect role model and representative for mixed martial arts.
St-Pierre's name came up as a result of White saying he believed UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar was the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, which would bump GSP back to No. 3.
White defended St-Pierre as well however, but went onto say that the Canadian's other attributes make him the model for a great athlete and representative for the sport of MMA.
"He's a professional, he's always in shape, he does everything he's supposed to do, you couldn't meet a nicer guy," said White.
