C2 Theme:
This is a man who, literally, punched and kicked his way to the top of his profession. In so doing, Georges St-Pierre (or GSP) not only helped bring mixed martial arts into the mainstream, but went a long way towards building the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) brand internationally. A two-time UFC Welterweight Champion of the World, Georges holds black belts in both Kyokushin karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and his well-rounded fighting style also incorporates Muay Thai, boxing and wrestling. Both intellectually and athletically, rigorous discipline and relentless self-betterment have been the hallmarks of a distinguished 25-2 career, a record he looks to improve upon when he returns to the octagon this year. In addition to being one of the planet’s best pound-for-pound fighters, Georges is also a vocal anti-bullying advocate and spokesperson for ChallengeU, an education platform dedicated to helping adults finish high school.
“Standing still is never a good option. Not in the ring, and not in life... When you stop moving, you’re done.”
