Of course I had to dedicate a post to the greatest fighter of all time, Georges St.Pierre.
As you all know he has made an extraordinary come back after almost 4 years of retirement. Georges decided to take time off when he announced his retirement in 2013 as the Welterweight champion. Came back to fight Michael Bisping on November 4th, 2017 and became the new Middleweight Champion. Along with one of my other favourite fighters, Conor Mcgregor, GSP is another MMA fighter in the UFC to have hold 2 championship belts in 2 different weight classes. Unfortunately GSP withdrew his Middleweight title due to his health. Growing up I always had an interest with “fighting” as Muay Thai fights were always put on the tv in my house lol. GSP is one main reason why I became a fanatic of UFC and all combat sports. He was already “MMA’s GOAT” before UFC 217 showcased that.
Who is GSP?

Georges is one of the most classiest, and respectful athletes I’ve come across. He shows aggressive passion, great sportsmanship, and respect for this sport, to and for his opponents and their team after every fight, whether it be a win or a loss. GSP finds a way to improve himself to be faster and stronger in whatever is coming next. GSP made his UFC debut at UFC 46: Supernatural in 2004, where he defeated a highly ranked fighter, Karo Parisian by unanimous decision. GSP is a fast striker, he’s efficient, and disciplined. His style incorporates Wrestling, Boxing, Kyokushin, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai. Rankings of having 3rd dan black belt in Kyokushin Karate, 1st degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. With a striking percentage of 54% and take down percentage of 74%.
I was going to tell you what fights were my favourite, but honestly, I can’t even chose, lol. Each fighter he faces, his performance just get’s better and better. BUT – If I had to choose, one of my favourite GSP fights are UFC 56: VS Sean Sherk, no doubt man, I believe that was his peak. From what I know of, it is available to watch on UFC.TV or the UFC app if you have a UFC fight pass. If you don’t want to achieve UFC fight pass you can start a free trial. You will really see his drive, and what he is capable of when watching his fights.
