Odds are, a lot of it is just an act, but he really comes off as a child and I don't see how it would be good for a sport trying to distance itself from "WWE" and gain respectability amongst the people who find it vulgar.
I think the UFC in order to stay fresh needs to have a broader home base than just Canada, the USA and Brazil. Like boxing doesn't have a brand itself, it simply is boxing. Mixed martial arts needs to have this status where it's more than just a product.

GSP is often been critical of the way MMA is being sold and the huge lack of respect the fighters have for each other.
