STATUS: UFC Welterweight champion. Will defend title this weekend at UFC 154 against Carlos Condit. GSP looks in  typically phenomenal shape after using some of his own workout programs and probe to be a great way to keep your body in awesome condition.

HT: 5-10 WT: 170

DOB: May 19, 1981 IN: Saint-Isadore, Quebec, Canada

CHILDHOOD HERO: “My first was probably Jesus Christ.”

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: “When I’m not fighting, I like to play ice hockey. Chess. I like to go see a movie. I like to play tennis. Play basketball.”

NICKNAME: “GSP. Rush. Because most of my fights finish quickly.”

FAVORITE MOVIES: “Jurassic Park and all the Star Wars series.”

FAVORITE TV SHOW: “The Simpsons.”

MUSICAL TASTES: “Reggae, hip-hop. Beanie Man. Sean Paul. Fifty Cent. Elephant Man. Eminem. Also I like French reggae and French rap.”

FIRST JOB: “Work on the farm. (Picking what?) Strawberries (age 11 or 12). (Where?) South shore of Montreal.”

FIRST CAR: “Ford Tempo 1991. (Color?) Red [laughs].”

CHILDHOOD DREAM(s): “A professional wrestler or professional fighter.”

FAVORITE MEAL: “Is Quebecois food. French Canadian food – Toutiere. In English I think it’s beef pie.”

FAVORITE BREAKFAST CEREAL: “My favorite breakfast is two eggs, sausage, bacon, cheese, potato, fresh fruit, big glass of orange juice – all the things.”

FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR: “Chocolate.”

EARLY FIGHTING MEMORY: “When I first started (age 21). I remember one funny thing. I was fighting Thomas Denny. After the first round, I was feeling sick. I eliminate phlegm. And I was so tired. I said to my coach, I can’t go on, I think I’m gonna fall. I said to him, Right when the round starts I’m gonna try a high kick. If it misses, throw in the towel. And my coach said, Do you see a towel here? You’re gonna die in the ring. Then I hear the bell rings. I got pissed, he wanted me to die! I got so pissed I kicked his ass (won by late 2nd round KO). My coach gave me enough energy to finish.”

PRE-FIGHT FEELING: “I’m afraid of – not of my opponent – I’m afraid to perform not like I’m supposed to do. I’m very nervous but I stay very positive. Because it’s what I love to do. I need to enjoy it – that’s what I try to tell myself. (Look at the opponent upon entering ring?) Yeah, I look at him. I look around. Nothing specific things that I do. I’m not afraid to look at him.”

GREATEST SPORTS MOMENT: “When I beat Sean Sherk. Because at that time I thought I would have a title shot. It’s my most important victory I think.”

MOST PAINFUL MOMENT: “When I get injured. Do you mean mentally or physically? (Whatever comes to mind.) It’s when I was supposed to fight Pete Spratt, I injured my knee, five days before the fight. So I couldn’t fight. I thought I’d never have another chance to fight a world class fighter like Pete Spratt. At the time I was going to school and had very little money. I was very sad. Then, a couple of months later my manager called me and said I had another opportunity to fight Pete Spratt. Another painful moment is when I lose to Matt Hughes. It was more painful to see the tape. Because I realized I could beat this guy. But I just didn’t fight as well like I could.”

WORST INJURY: “I never had a real bad injury. I got one in my knee – stretched ligaments – before Pete Spratt fight.”

EMBARRASSING CAREER MEMORY: “When I lost to Matt Hughes. Most embarrassing moment.”

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT: “I’ve never been on vacations often but I went to Dominican Republic, it was very nice.”

FAVORITE FIGHTERS TO WATCH: “I like Randy Couture. (What about him?) He’s good as a fighter and as a person. He never give up and he always comes back. I like BJ Penn. (Why?) He’s very well-rounded. And according to a lot of people, one of the best in the world. And I’m very happy to fight him. I feel very privileged. Also I like Matt Hughes. And Fedor. And I like Tito Ortiz also. (Why?) He’s very spectacular, he gave a good show. When you see him you’re nervous, you either like him or hate him. He’s probably the best guy in the world to entertain.”

FAVORITE FIGHT: “I like the fight between Thiago Alves against the Miletich Fighting Systems guy…Fisher.”

PEOPLE QUALITIES MOST ADMIRED: “I like to see an honest and respectful guy.”
