UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre is often asked what initially motivated him to become the baddest 170-pounder in bare feet. While donning Octagon gold and enjoying the financial security that comes along with it are more than enough to keep most people focused, GSP draws his motivation from the bullying he endured as a scrawny kid in Canada.
Fast forward 20 years and St-Pierre is not only one of the most physically imposing welterweights in his division, but he’s also taken on an active role in helping end the ever-growing issue across the world.
St-Pierre defends his title against Jake Shields at UFC 129 on April 30th. However, the charismatic superstar wants to end bullying immediately.

This past November, MMA icon Frank Shamrock partnered up with StandTogether.us to lend a helping hand, as well.
