    Sometimes I hear the announcer say something like George the "gangyon" St Pierre. What is this and what does it mean? Guessing its a Canadian thing.

    You have heard Buffer saying it for years: George "Safe" Pierre.

    I believe what you're referring to is when Buffer says "La gagnant" which is French for the winner. That isn't his nickname though.

    Lol, this is what Buffer says when announcing the winner of fights in Montreal. It's not a GSP thing, it's a French/Buffer thing.

    It's just a french word "gagnant" = "winner" pronounced by Buffer with a terrible accent. :D

    TS made an accurate observation about what is said in conjunction with GSP's name on a consistent basis, then made a close enough approximation of a word in a language he didn't understand that the French speakers knew what he was talking about. They then provided the knowledge he was seeking.

    Where's the stupid?

    There's a huge difference between ignorance and stupidity. TS obviously doesn't speak French, but had the guts to ask publicly in order to rectify his ignorance. That isn't the act of a stupid person. Stop being so smug.
