    Georges St-Pierre broke into the UFC in 2004, and for nine years he dominated the welterweight division. In the cage, he was a beast. But on the mic, he wasn’t known as bombastic or controversial. He was very much the Canadian stereotype - humble, reserved, and somewhat quiet.

  • Georges St-Pierre won’t be ‘punching bag’ for younger fighters, will retire (for good) with first UFC loss

    After Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White decided to pull the plug on the much-criticized Middleweight title fight between division king Michael Bisping and former Welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, he proclaimed that “Rush” would instead return to try and reclaim his 170-pound belt.

    However, that’s not necessarily the case, according to St-Pierre, who says his goal is to still fight “The Count” because he would have much more to gain fighting — and beating -- him than defeating current 170-pound roost ruler, Tyron Woodley.

    UFC women’s featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie has yet to defend the title she won vs. Holly Holm back in February.
