Georges St-Pierre, one of the top three mixed martial arts fighters of all time, has announced his retirement.

GSP has little left to prove in his career and says the only fight he’d be willing to take is with undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov. The UFC refused to book this match, though both fighters wanted it.

GSP And Rose Bring Back Martial Arts Values At UFC 217

Rose Namajunas wins at UFC 217

Rose Namajunas wins at UFC 217

The title fight wins by Georges St-Pierre and Rose Namajunas at UFC 217 recently weren’t just exciting victories. They were exciting victories for those who care about the dignity of mixed martial arts.

The pair both used their wins to talk about bringing respect back to the sport. It’s arguably something that was missing during the short blip that was the Conor McGregor cut-rate pro wrestler period.

Sarah wrote about this all for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Jean-Claude VanDamme

It’s looking like there’s going to be a remake of the classic Jean-Claude VanDamme film, Kickboxer.

The cast will include the likes of Guardians Of The Galaxy breakout wrestle-star Bautista and Canada’s favourite MMAer Georges St. Pierre, amongst others.

Because we don’t really trust Hollywood, Sarah checked out the martial arts creds for some of the other cast members to make sure they’re going to bring the real. It turns out this film could be seriously legit.

Georges St-Pierre post fight

Georges St-Pierre post fight

There’s a solid new documentary about elite fighter Georges St-Pierre making the rounds called Takedown: The DNA of GSP.

Sarah reviewed the film for Fightland and found that although it’s a solid overview of Canada’s best known athlete, it’s missing some of the little details that’d make it championship material.
