Georges St-Pierre has Returned to the Gym, but He's Heavier than Ever

For years, it was an open secret that Georges St. Pierre had some fears relating to what he suspected were alien encounters. The former UFC welterweight champ touched on some perhaps related matters during an interview awhile back on The Joe Rogan Experience, during which he spoke about unexplained time lapses.

Rogan, and this writer, would later go on to wonder out loud with concern if such experiences were related to the multiple concussions a fighter like St. Pierre had sustained over his fight career. No one will ever know for sure, but St. Pierre elaborated on another experience that he says he can't come up with an explanation for during an appearance on Chael Sonnen's great new You're Welcome podcast.

Check out the segment above, and listen to the full podcast here.

Sonnen asked St. Pierre, "I wanna know your opinion. Do we have aliens that have visited this country?"

"Rush" had this to say in response:

"I never talk about aliens," he said.

"I talk about non-identified flying objects. And if you don't believe me, one day I was in Albuquerque ... with Rashad Evans and [former UFC fighter and former wrestling coach for Evans and St. Pierre] Mike Van Arsdale, a fighter called Alejandro, he's a Mexican guy, and also Ali [Abdel-Aziz], I believe he managed Frankie Edgar. And we're all in the car ... in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on the highway, and we saw a UFO all together.

"I don't know what it was, but it's something that we cannot explain ... it came swift towards us and right away it changed directions and it disappeared."
