UFC 100 conference call with Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves

GSP and Thiago remained professional throughout, although as usual, there were some terribly ridiculous questions. It is never good when a reporter asks the same question someone else asked just minutes before; but the worst is when they tell you it is going to be the same question re-worded.
