Georges St-Pierre told a very strange story on the Chael Sonnen podcast

They say there's a thin line between genius and insanity. With some of the things GSP has said during interviews, you get the feeling that he treads this line very carefully.

UFC 111: Press Conference


GSP is an odd fellow. He's shown great mental strength throughout his MMA career to solidify his position as one of the best, if not the best mixed martial artist of all time. The other thing about him is that he openly admits to believing in UFO's and aliens.

In a recent appearance on Chael Sonnen's new podcast 'You're Welcome', Georges recounted an incident where he was convinced he witnessed a UFO with some of his fellow UFC fighters.

Sonnen grilled him on the topic of life forms from other planets visiting Earth and the former UFC welterweight champion was packing a great anecdote for the host.

I never said . . . I never talk about aliens. I talk about non-identified flying objects. And if you don't believe me, one day I was in Albuquerque . . . with Rashad Evans and Mike van Arsdale, a fighter called Alejandro, he's a Mexican guy, and also Ali (Abdel-Aziz), I believe he managed Frankie Edgar. And we're all in the car. And you could ask any of those guys... we were in a car in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the highway, and we saw a UFO all together.

I don't know what it was, but it's something that we cannot explain... it came swift towards us and right away it changed directions and it disappeared.


Although he covered his ass by adding that it might have been some sort of optical illusion that duped the car full of fighters, GSP has gone on record before saying he was fearful of getting abducted by aliens. There you have it, the man who made a career out of beating up the scariest dudes on the planet is afraid of little green men.
