In anticipation of a record setting audience, the Octagon’s graphics department stepped up their efforts for the official “UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields” event poster. The star-studded card features a pair of title bouts, including Canada’s three-time defending Athlete of the Year Georges St-Pierre.
The April 30th extravaganza takes place inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario.
GSP puts his welterweight title on the line against former Strikeforce 185-pound champ Jake Shields in the night’s featured attraction. Jose Aldo will break in his freshly minted UFC featherweight belt against Mark Hominick in the card’s co-main event.
