Georges St. Pierre: Thiago Alves is a (hiccup) class act and a real professional

"The [day after UFC 100] I went at a pool party at Rehab with all my friends who came to support me. I drank so much that I forgot my whole name. It was very cool because at one time, Thiago Alves showed up with his entourage and came in my booth (cabana) and drinking with me and congratulate me for the fight. I thought he was a class act and that prove that he was a real professional athlete and a real good person and a gentleman. John Fitch showed up as well, and we celebrate together our victories. Shonie Carter came a little bit later with a gold speedo and a hat and a cane dressed like a pimp with his cane. He make us laugh very much and as always me and Shonie had a great time because Shonie is a good old friend of mine. We had an amazing time at Rehab then I came back to my hotel…took a little nap of one hour and went back to a club at night called Body English at the Hard Rock Hotel. I drank so much that I couldn’t sleep at night. I took my plane the following Monday – when I got on the plane…I think I was still drunk. People who know me know that I can’t sleep on the plane, because I'm always afraid of flying, but the fact that I was drunk helped me out controlling my fear."

-- UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre shares his UFC 100 post-fight celebration via his official blog and proves that win, booze or draw, there's no reason why two fighters can't be friends afterward. Maybe Brock Lesnar should take a break from his daily regimen of big bucks, pick-up trucks and T-bone steaks to spend a day or two with "Rush" down at Rehab in Las Vegas. Then again, the thought of Shonie Carter and his bulging speedo makes me wonder if Lesnar doesn't have the right idea by bolting to the mountains of Minnesota.
