Hear My Interview with UFC Champ Georges St-Pierre [Audio]
UFC Welterweight Champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre is sharing some of his life experiences and philosophies with the rest of the world in his new book “The Way Of The Fight.” It’s in stores now, and I was fortunate enough to talk to Georges about the book earlier today.
GSP has become one of the most popular MMA fighters in the world, and his book is a startlingly honest and gritty portrait of a fighter’s journey, highlighting the lessons that propelled his rise from bullying victim to internationally celebrated athlete and champion, with the added perspective of overcoming a sidelining injury at his prime.
From his beginnings as a small, mercilessly bullied child first discovering karate to his years as a struggling garbage collector who spent all his free time in the gym, his hard-fought rise in the sport of mixed martial arts, and his long, painful recovery from a career-threatening injury, Georges never lost sight of his ambition to become the greatest martial artist of all time. In “The Way Of The Fight,” Georges for the first time reveals what propelled him not only to become a champion, but to embrace obstacles as opportunities to build character.
Georges and I not only discuss the book (which is for everybody, not just for MMA fans), but we also talk about his upcoming appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And you know we had to talk about fighting, at least just a little bit. Hear which fight Georges is most proud of, and his thoughts on this weekend’s UFC 159 featuring Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen.
Georges St-Pierre interview
And if you were paying attention to that interview, then you heard me say one of my favorite GSP fights was when he faced Matt Hughes for the second time. This was the fight in which Georges won the belt for the first time, and put a serious beating on Hughes. This is damn near flawless GSP at work. Check it out below.
