What's buzzing:


Cindy Crawford once distracted Georges St-Pierre during a fight

If Carlos Condit wants to divert Georges St-Pierre's attention during their fight on Saturday night, he just needs to surround the octagon with beautiful women. GSP recently admitted his mind did wander once, and Cindy Crawford is to blame.

One time I was fighting against BJ Penn. I had his back against the fence. I'm not kidding you, for a few seconds I look and I was staring at a beautiful woman in the audience. It was ... uh ... (snaps fingers) Cindy Crawford. I stared at her. I'm thinking, 'My God, she's so beautiful. And she's looking at me.' And just next to her, I see her husband looking at me and I'm like, 'Oh my God. I can't look at her. Her husband's looking at me.' Now I'm thinking, 'Of course, they're looking at me. I'm doing the show right now and I'm in the middle of the fight.' So I'm like, 'Go back to your focus' (laughs).

Crawford, once one of the world's most well-known supermodels, is also a big UFC fan. An older video shows her getting Matt Hughes' signature on her chest, and she's been cageside for multiple UFC events.

There is no word on if she will be at UFC 154 this weekend, so Condit may want to have another plan in place than hoping GSP gets distracted. After all, GSP won both of his bouts against B.J. Penn.
