UFC Welterweight Champ Georges St Pierre Manila

Today might be April Fool’s Day, but this is no joke. “Georges St-Pierre: Rush to the Top” is making its pay-per-view debut today. Integrated Sports Media, the undisputed distribution champ of mixed martial arts and boxing fights in North America, will present a one-hour special featuring St-Pierre’s six non-UFC fights.

The PPV broadcast will be made available throughout the entire month of April for only $9.95.

The UFC welterweight champion’s non-Octagon scraps came against Dave Strasser, Pete Spratt, Thomas Denny, Travis Galbraith, Justin Bruckmann and Ivan Menjivar. St-Pierre finished each of them before the final horns sounded.

St-Pierre owns a dominant 21-2 professional record, with 13 of his victories coming by way of devastating finish. He started learning Kyokushin karate from his father at the age of seven in order to defend himself from a school bully. He later added Brazilian jiu jitsu, wrestling and boxing to his extensive arsenal.

The planet’s baddest 170-pounder currently holds a third-degree black belt in Kyokushin, as well as black belts in BJJ and Gaidojutsu.

GSP will defend his title next month against Jake Shields at UFC 129.
