I think the whole talk of it being scripted for the sake of making preview videos is rediculous.
I agree 100% - the accent and the fact that english is not GSP's first language made it sound stiff.
You have to think that if he said what he wanted to say in french it would have come out much more articulate but the point would have been the same - Huges had a less than stellar performance and GSP wanted to let him know he saw that!

GO Georges - Matt is ready for a loss and you are the one to give it to him!

I think GSP did this on his own. I dont think it sounded right because one his accent and two he's not good at talking shit because hes too nice and was trying to sell the fight that way and it just isnt his thing. If the UFC scripted it GSP wouldnt have beeen saying "Im just trying to sell fights, dont you want to sell fight" or something like that, after he said it.
