Georges St. Pierre is the welterweight champion of the UFC.
He boasts a 21-2 record and hasn’t lost in more than four years. He’s a stylish dresser, is known internationally by his initials “GSP” and Saturday will battle Jake Shields in the main event of UFC 129 where he’ll be supported by 55,000-plus adoring fans in his native Canada.
Life wasn’t always this good.
“I had a rough childhood, big problems,” GSP told Yahoo! Sports, and unlike so many athletes, it wasn’t because he was poor or from a dangerous neighborhood or from a broken home.
One of the toughest men in the world was bullied as a kid.
