  • This Week’s MMA Birthdays: Georges St. Pierre Turns 33 By: Brian Knapp

    Georges St. Pierre turns 33 this week. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com



    Two-time Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight titleholder Georges St. Pierre will celebrate his 33rd birthday on May 19.

    “Rush” last fought at UFC 167 in November, when he retained the 170-pound championship with a contentious split decision over Johny Hendricks at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Afterward, the Tristar Gym representative took an indefinite leave of absence and vacated the welterweight crown. St. Pierre has since undergone reconstructive knee surgery -- the second such procedure of his career -- to repair a torn ACL. Wins over Matt Hughes (twice), B.J. Penn (twice), Josh Koscheck (twice), Jon Fitch, Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz highlight his stellar resume, and his 19 victories inside the Octagon rank first on the all-time list.

    St. Pierre has also dabbled in acting, having appeared in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” It was recently announced that he will star in an upcoming remake of the 1989 cult hit “Kickboxer,” which featured Jean-Claude Van Damme.

  • Top 5 Forum Threads of the Week By: Jeff Sherwood

    Georges St. Pierre did not mince words. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com



    Georges St. Pierre may not be an active participant on the current mixed martial arts landscape, but his decision to take an indefinite leave of absence from the Ultimate Fighting Championship has not kept the former welterweight titleholder from speaking his mind.

    In a March 7 interview with Dallasnews.com, St. Pierre took aim at the controversial subject of testosterone replacement therapy.

    “It should have been done a long time ago,” he said. “There’s not another sports that accepts it. It’s a joke. For our sport, I don’t want to accuse individuals. Never once have I accused a person. I don’t want to accuse the organization. The problem is the system. One of the reasons why I stopped [fighting] is I see a lot of [expletive] going on and I got tired of it. I tried to make things change and it didn’t work.”

    The Nevada Athletic Commission banned TRT in a unanimous vote on Feb. 27, and a number of other governing bodies have since followed suit.
