Georges "Rush" St-Pierre, also known as GSP, is a Canadian professional mixed martial artist and three-time UFC world champion.
Raised in St-Isidore, Quebec, a town of about 2,000 people, Georges was bullied for years by older schoolmates, which served as motivation for the future champion. At 16, Georges competed in his first amateur bout, representing the starting point in his meteoric rise to the top of the sport. In 2006 he became the UFC Welterweight Champion for the first time. Since then, Georges has amassed numerous accolades, including being a three-time Canadian Athlete of the Year recipient and the record holder for most wins in UFC history (19). He is widely regarded as one of the planet's best pound-for-pound fighters.
Outside of the ring, Georges authored an autobiography, The Way of the Fight, and was the subject of his own documentary. Georges has also ventured into the world of film, most notably appearing as the villainous Batroc in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He will next be seen on the big screen with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the upcoming Kickboxer reboot.
An expert in overcoming adversity, Georges brings his intense passion to everything he does, especially his love of palaeontology. He has impressed friends, crew members and palaeontologists with his deep understanding of our prehistoric past throughout the making of The Boneyard. Now viewers will get to witness this unique side of Georges first-hand.
