two, St-Pierre won TKO (cut).
Rush was really beginning to make a name for himself in the
MMA world. His style was unique and effective and his reputation
as a "good ole boy" was catching on.
Georges St-Pierre faced off with Pete Spratt an American MMA
fighter from Denison, Texas at TKO 14: Road Warriors on November
29, 2003 in Canada.
It was a much anticipated event and George St Pierre did not
disappoint. He won the bout by Submission via Rear Naked Choke
Hold in the first round.
Georges St-Pierre made his debut in the UFC at UFC 46 which
was held on January 31, 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He went into the octagon against Armenian American Judo-style
fighter Karo Parisyan and five minutes into the third round, won
by unanimous decision.
His dream to fight in the UFC finally became a reality and he
was holding his own.
The next fight on the list for St-Pierre was against Jay
Hieron in June of 2004 at UFC 48: Payback, again in Las Vegas. Again
Georges showed his stuff and won by TKO in the first round.
His third opponent in the UFC was the notorious wrestling
rooted fighter, Matt Hughes at UFC 50: The War of '04 for the
vacant Welterweight Championship. The match turned out to be his

George St Pierre refused to give up. He came back to win over
Dave Strasser at TKO 19: Rage in January 2005, winning via kimura
submission in round one.
Next, Georges met up with Jason Mayhem Miller in the ring at
UFC 52: Couture vs. Liddell 2 in Las Vegas,
Nevada. It was a bloody duel but St-Pierre reigned victorious in

against pro- wrestler Frank Trigg via Rear Naked Choke and
against Sean Sherk by TKO.
Once again, Georges St-Pierre was on a winning roll. UFC 58
was the setting for his face off with the UFC Welterweight
Champion, B.J. Penn.
Georges St-Pierre won and earned the right to fight Matt Hughes at UFC 63 for the title. Due to a
groin injury, St-Pierre had to pull out of the event and was
replaced by Penn.
It was announced, however, that St-Pierre and Hughes would
rematch as soon as Georges injury had healed.
Although George St Pierre was not able to fight, he did attend
UFC 63 to cheer on his fellow Canadian fighter, David Loiseau
(aka The Crow).
He also entered the ring after the Hughes/Penn bout and had
words for Hughes which Hughes took offensively. The taunting
continued off-camera as well, setting the scene for a much
anticipated rematch against the two.
The Ultimate Fighter
In November of 2006, Georges St-Pierre appeared as a trainer
on the hit television reality show, The Ultimate Fighter 4: The
On November 18, 2006, St-Pierre stepped into the ring with
Hughes to back up his tough talk. In the first round, Georges
grounded Hughes with a superman punch followed by a left
Hughes remained in the game though until taken out with a left
kick to the head and flurries of punches and strikes. Georges St
Pierre won by TKO. He was declared the new UFC Welterweight
Champion and signed a 6 fight deal.
The glory was short lived, however. On April 7, 2007 in
Houston, Texas at UFC 69: Shootout, Georges took on Brazilian
Jiu-Jitsu practicianer, Matt Serra.
George St Pierre lost the
bout in the first round by TKO due to strikes. After the fight,
he said he was not able to focus due to his father being
seriously ill. It was at this time he split from his manager and
most of his associates.
By August, a refocused St-Pierre surfaced for UFC 74 where he
faced off with wrestling champion Josh Koscheck.
Georges was on top of his game and out wrestled Koscheck and
won by Decision five minutes into the third round.
Winning the fight put Georges as the number-one contender to
take on the winner of the Hughes/Serra match. Serra was not able
to fight due to a back injury therefore Georges would fight Matt
Hughes once again. The bout would be for the
The two met up at UFC 79 on December 29, 2007 at UFC 79 in Las
Vegas, Nevada. St-Pierre showcased his wrestling skills and
blocked Hughes' take down attempts.
Georges attempted a kimura on Hughes arm then switched to a
straight armbar forcing Hughes to submit in round two. Georges
was the new UFC Interim Welterweight Champion.
Battle for the UFC Title
GSP was not content with the title. He stated that it actually
meant nothing since Serra was the real Champion. On April 19,
2008 the two met in the octagon at UFC 83 held in Montreal,
Quebec. It was the first UFC event held in Canada which inspired
Georges to give the fight his all.
Early on St-Pierre lit into Serra with knees and a hodge-podge of blows
that led to the fight stoppage in the second round. Georges was
declared the Undisputed Welterweight Champion of the UFC.
In August, Georges defended his title at UFC 87 against the
former Purdue wrestling captain, Jon Fitch who was riding on a 16 fight winning
streak. Five minutes into the fifth round, Georges won by
A rematch was set against Penn and St-Pierre for UFC 94. It
was one of the most anticipated UFC events ever. Georges did not
With a superman punch, he bloodied Penn's nose and wore
Penn out with take-downs and put on a Hawaiian
ground-and-pound. By the end of round four, the fight was stopped
by request of Penn's corner man.
Penn went to the hospital following the fight.
Georges next title defense was against John Fitch at UFC 87:
Seek and Destroy on August 8, 2008. George St Pierre won the
fight by Unanimous Decision in the fifth round.
Another title defense was in order, this time against purple
belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and top contender, Thiago Alves at UFC 100 on
July 11, 2009.
Thiago gave Georges a run for his money while standing but
St-Pierre took it to the ground and showed his wrestling skills,
winning by Unanimous Decision five minutes into the fifth round.
Georges did not come out
unscathed though, pulling a groin muscle in the fourth round.
On March 27, 2010, Georges took on English fighter, Dan Hardy
at UFC 111. It was the first time an British MMA fighter fought
for a title in the UFC.
Though Georges dominated the fight, Hardy refused to tap out.
At the end of the fifth round, Georges was declared the winner
via Unanimous Decision and remained the UFC Welterweight
Still holding the belt, Georges St-Pierre met up with Josh Koscheck for a rematch on December 11, 2011 at UFC 124. The
match was much anticipated since the two had squared off At UFC 75 and St. Pierre had out-wrestled Koscheck
This one would be the fight to remember, however. Instead of being a wrestling match, the
fighting was strikes and jabs, 55 jabs to be exact with St-Pierre being the executioner.
Joe Rogan was quoted as saying it was "the most jabs I've ever seen in an MMA fight."
. By the end of the fight, Koscheck's eye was so swollen he was taken to the hospital
where it was determined he had suffered a broken orbital bone but was
able to continue to fight.
Next up was Jake Shields at UFC 129 on
April 30, 2011, in Toronto. Dana White himself said that if St-Pierre defeated Shields, it could initiate a move to
middleweight and a superfight against the Middleweight Champ, Anderson Silva.
By way of unanimous decision, St-Pierre defeated Shields and held tight to his Title.
All eyes are on St-Pierre for the headliner fight against Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit which is set for
November 17. If Georges wins, the Silva fight possibly looms on the horizon which has caused
much excitement. If he looses it will be a huge upset.
St-Pierre has trained at the Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy
and received his brown belt from Renzo. He earned his black belt
under Bruno Fernandes.
He has also trained at Greg Jackson's Submission Fighting
Gaidojutsu school along with Rashad Evans, Nathan Marquardt, and
Donald Cerrone who also went with Georges to Montreal to help him
get ready for his fight with Penn in UFG 94.
GSP had earned the respect of not only his peers but of the
media as well and also retains a swarm of fans, especially lady fans, and that
combination of a following might very well be the mightiest feat
an MMA fighter can accomplish.
So where does it go from here?
Georges St-Pierre will continue to defend his title with his winning
style of Kyokushin, wrestling, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
and spirit that cannot be stifled. If victorious in UFC 154, he may be moved up in weight class and face off with
Silva Anderson which, if he wins, would be a historical event.
Georges is extrememly popular and you can find some good gear with his name on it.
He holds the record for the second most knockouts, in the UFC (Silva is first). With a record of 21-8-0 he was a force to be recokoned with. He is one of the most popular MMA figures of all times.
