Harry Kettle - August 24, 2023

Josh Evanoff - July 20, 2023

Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre will grapple Demian Maia in December. ‘Rush’ announced his return to competition earlier this month at International Fight Week.

Josh Evanoff - July 12, 2023

Former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre has some names in mind for his grappling debut. Lost in the madness of International Fight Week was the announcement that ‘Rush’ is back. Well, not entirely. Georges St-Pierre last competed in 2017, scoring a submission win over Michael Bisping at UFC 217. While he’s not returning to the cage, he will be hitting the mats later this year.

Harry Kettle - July 5, 2023

Twitter owner Elon Musk has shown off the team he’s hoping to train with in preparation for a rumored fight against Mark Zuckerberg. In recent weeks, there’s been a lot of talk surrounding a possible fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg – in the UFC. The two tech giants seemingly agreed to it on social media, with UFC president Dana White heavily backing the idea. In itself, of course, it seems like a bizarre move, but both men are apparently interested in making it happen.

Josh Evanoff - May 15, 2023

Former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre was expecting to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. ‘Rush’ retired from the sport in February 2019, over a year after his successful return against Michael Bisping. When St-Pierre announced his retirement, he meant it. As of now, the Canadian hasn’t competed in years and has shown zero interest in doing anything besides an exhibition boxing match.

Joe Rogan believes Jorge Masvidal is "better" than prime Georges St-Pierre: "I think he is on another level"

Cole Shelton - March 21, 2023

Joe Rogan thinks Jorge Masvidal would’ve been dangerous for Georges St-Pierre had the two been fighting at the same time. St-Pierre is widely considered to be the greatest welterweight of all time and one of the best fighters ever. However, his title reign ran from 2007 until 2013 and because of that, Rogan says fighters have just evolved to be better mixed martial artists, as he thinks Masvidal is just on another level than St-Pierre ever was, which his guest, Luke Combs – a country singer – didn’t agree with.

Georges St-Pierre says he's finally out of UFC contract, won't rule out a return to combat sports: "Never say never"

Cole Shelton - October 31, 2022

Georges St-Pierre is finally a free agent and isn’t opposed to taking a fight. St-Pierre last fought in the UFC in November of 2017 when he submitted Michael Bisping to become the middleweight champ and a two-division champ. He then retired due to health issues, but during his retirement, there were talks of him returning to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, yet that never came to fruition.

Georges St-Pierre warns Israel Adesanya about championship pressure: "It's only the beginning"

Ryan Harkness - October 7, 2022

Israel Adesanya is five defenses deep into his undisputed middleweight title reign. And while he has a ways to go before he begins to challenge Anderson Silva’s ten title defense record, the pressure that comes with being a dominant champion is already mounting on ‘The Last Stylebender.’ One person who knows a little bit about the stresses of a long championship run is Georges St-Pierre, who was a two time welterweight champion and defended his title nine times between 2006 and 2013. That streak cemented him as a top G.O.A.T. contender, but it also did his head in to the point where he relinquished his belt and walked away from the sport for four years.
