But St-Pierre is NOT one of those critics. In fact, the legendary Canadian actually thinks he is a 'very nice guy' and likes his chances against 'The Chosen One'.

Asked if 'The Problem Child' could beat Woodley when they clash next month, he replied via MMA Fighting: "He could, definitely.

"It's a different sport. In MMA I would say no, but in boxing he's much bigger than Tyron Woodley, and also he trains very hard. I'm not saying that's what's going to happen, but I think he definitely can do it.

"I'm not one of the haters, and [Paul] actually is a very nice guy."

'GSP' added: "It's a different sport. When I was training when I was world champion, I was boxing with some great amateur boxers that, they were not world-class amateurs but they were great amateur boxers, and it was good training.

"It's a completely different sport, and just to put that into perspective, I believe if you would allow dirty boxing in boxing, you would have a total different set of champions.

"Because you change a rule, you change the game. Woodley has more experience in combat sports than Jake Paul, but it's a different game. It's interesting. As a fan, I'm going to watch it for sure."

The former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion also revealed that he heard good things about Paul in the build-up to his fight with Ben Askren.

St-Pierre continued: "I knew because I know people that were training at the same gym as [Paul], and they told me that he was training very hard.

"And I know that Ben Askren, because I know Freddie Roach, only went for a week to Freddie Roach's and he was not doing great."
