I’m sure that a lot of us have memories of being picked on and bullied when we were younger at school by people that didn’t grow up to do anything with their lives, but I doubt that any of us would deal with this people with the grace and humility that Georges St Pierre did if we ever happened to randomly bump into them again.

I imagine that most of us would just laugh at them and diss them, or humble brag about how well our lives had gone, but not George St Pierre.
