GSP quotes his inner Napoleon

In the April 2011 edition of Men's Health magazine, cover boy Georges St-Pierre shows he learned something in school in Montreal.

The  UFC welterweight champion quotes 18th and 19th-century French leader Napoleon Bonaparte, when asked for his approach to dealing with an opponent. “Never interrupt your enemy when he’s making a mistake,” GSP is quoted as saying in the magazine, which hits newsstands Tuesday.

Kind of like Dan Hardy not bringing any takedown defense with him from England to New Jersey at UFC 111 last March. Or like when Josh Koscheck had no way to stop GSP's left jab at UFC 124 last December.

The same sort of holds true with his GSP's take on fighting.

“It’s like life. The more knowledge you get, the more questions you ask," GSP said in the cover story. "The smarter you get, the more you realize that everything can be possible.”

Like, you know, developing a sick jab when everyone in the MMA world expected shoots and double-leg takedowns.
