Canadian mixed martial arts fighter – Georges St. Pierre
Georges “Rush” Saint-Pierre born in Saint-Isidore, Quebec, Canada, often referred to as GSP, is a Canadian mixed martial arts fighter and the 2007 UFC Welterweight Champion.
Saint-Pierre holds notable wins over Matt Hughes, B.J. Penn, Frank Trigg, Karo Parisyan and current UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk. He is considered to be the #1 ranked 170 lb (77 kg) fighter in the world.
St. Pierre had a difficult childhood, attending a school where others would steal his clothes and money. He started learning Kyokushin karate at age seven to defend himself against a school bully. He took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) after his karate teacher died, and has also trained in wrestling and boxing.
St. Pierre had dreamed of becoming a UFC champion since watching Royce Gracie fight in 1993 at UFC 1. GSP had his first amateur bout when he was only 16 years old. He states, “When I won my first amateur (MMA) fight, I was 16 years old and I beat a guy that was 25. I was only a Kyokushin Karate fighter and the guy I fought was a boxer. At the time my ground skills were very poor, I didn’t know nothing on the ground.”
Saint-Pierre won his fight by knockout, going low with several leg kicks and then going high with a Karate kick to the head. To this day much of the media has him pegged as a wrestler, or a Jiu Jitsu fighter, but he still considers himself a karate stylist at heart.
The tattoo on his chest means that there are two sides to him. “I can be very rude and I can be very nice. I like to be rude when I fight,” St. Pierre has said.
