Former world champion and kickboxing legend John Wayne “The Gunslinger” Parr posted some of his extended footage sparring with former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre back when they were preparing for St-Pierre’s last fight in the UFC.

“The Gunslinger” said in the caption of his post, “Just downloaded the new version of Instagram with 60 second videos.
Small highlight sparring GSP at @renzograciebjj academy in New York 2 years ago. I was sparring southpaw trying to imitate Hendricks.
Was the highlight of my life getting to work with a super star like GSP.”

Amazing to see the two legends working together and even more incredible to hear how great of an experience it was for “JWP.”

While the rumors of St-Pierre’s return to the Octagon have been rumbling, no official word has come from St-Pierre on any comeback fight. Firas Zahabi, long-time head coach of St-Pierre has said that it will take a big motivator to get “Rush” back into fighting and feels it is just a matter of time.
