Georges St. Pierre says 'it's fine' if you think he's a sex symbol

You know, you're a cute little ... heartbreaker ... FOXY!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has no problem with being a sexy beast in the eyes of mixed martial arts (MMA) fans (you know who you are), but still thinks he has a long way to go before he's a legitimate sex symbol.

From his chat with Fighters Only:

"In terms of being a sex symbol or something, I don’t know about that. I think I still have a lot to be in order to be a sex symbol. But if people have of that image me it’s fine, I’ll take it (laughs). There are a lot of athletes who are called sex symbols and they do very well, so. David Beckham is one of them. To be compared to a guy like him it makes me… I’m very happy, you know?"

He's in a happy place.

St. Pierre was forced to put his 170-pound strap behind glass while he rehabs a surgically repaired knee, but recently gave fans another update on his "road to recovery," featuring a training video that has "Rush" doing all sorts of strength-related exercises.

See it here.

The Canadian kingpin currently told fans he's "ahead of schedule," but still concentrating solely on his rehab and not a title unification bout opposite Interim titleholder Carlos Condit in November, assuming the promotion decides to move forward with a proposed championship bout at UFC 154 later this year in Montreal.

Condit was originally expected to rematch Nick Diaz for the right to face St. Pierre last November, but the fiery Stockton slugger was popped for marijuana metabolites in his post-fight drug test and has since been weed-ed out of the 170-pound title chase.

Don't expect Johny Hendricks or Martin Kampmann to complain.
