UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St Pierre was eliminated from The World Series Of Poker on the first day of the competition this past weekend in Las Vegas. St Pierre was taking part in the competition to raise money for his Anti-Bullying charity.

St Pierre comments on his exit and says he had a great time and would like to try it again.

“The sport of mixed martial arts, it’s similar to poker, in the way that you need to leave your ego and your emotion outside of the Octagon, or outside of the table. I’m good to do it in my sport, but in poker, I had a lot of problems doing it, which is why I lose some very important hands. I had a great time and I want to come back and do it again.”
