Georges St. Pierre: 'I was bullied growing up and that's why I got into martial arts' (Video)

"I was. It was a long time ago, it was in school growing up and that's why I started doing martial arts, to defend myself. My dad taught me in the beginning then I went to a school and I started from there. I wish I could do that (get revenge on past bullies) but now I can be sued! I can't take my revenge on these guys."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre talks to CNN about living in the shadow of a bully as a wee little Canadian boy growing up. While it's been a long time since anyone pushed around "Rush," Carlos Condit is going to give it his best shot when they hook 'em up later this year to unify the division and Interim titles. Anyone out there with a good bully-revenge story? Don't link to those YouTube videos we've seen a zillion times, let's hear some personal experiences in the comments section below.
