Pete Sell recently sat down with our good friends over at FightTicker.com to discuss the state of his career, his relationship with various fighters, and give his opinions on the sport in general. Below are some of the highlights of that interview:
Sell On Matt Hughes:
My relationship with Hughes is simple — if I see him it’s hi and bye and that’s it. Hughes is very cocky and has to be the man — he is very pompus and a backstabber. Matt Hughes walks around like his s**t don’t stink and he craves attention and will take a shot at you when you least expect it.
Sell On Georges St. Pierre:
GSP is an awesome athlete. He has all the tools to dominate but he is a mental midget — his mentality is very weak. He is a very nice guy and I have hung out with him, but I don’t like the way he flip-flopped after the first fight with Serra. GSP was cool right after the fight but about 5 weeks afterwards he started making excuses saying he didn’t train properly, then GSP retracted and said Serra was the better man that night, well what was it? I don’t like how his story changed. I believe that all the pressure is on GSP, especially considering he is fighting in front of his countrymen. Serra thrives on the pressure and likes the underdog role. Matt Serra is all heart and GSP is the type of guy that if they were in a bar GSP would back down from a fight while Serra is down for whatever.
Sell Gives His Opinion On MMA’s Best Fighter:
Anderson Silva is the top dog right now and I don’t really see any holes in his game. Silva is very humble and respectful [and] an overall good guy, but anything can happen in this sport and sooner or later someone will knock Silva off and people would be riding that guy’s jock.
