Georges St-Pierre announced as inductee into UFC Hall of Fame

Georges St-Pierre

Georges St-Pierre is one of the greatest fighters in UFC history, and now he will be memorialized accordingly.

The UFC announced during UFC 249 on Saturday night that GSP will be inducted into their Hall of Fame.

The 38-year-old Canadian was a champion in both the welterweight and middleweight divisions in the UFC. He successfully defended his title nine consecutive times and once held the welterweight championship for six years — an incredible length of time for a UFC champion.

GSP fought and defeated some of the greatest UFC fighters in history, such as B.J. Penn, Matt Hughes, Nick Diaz and Jake Shields. He was reluctant to fight after 2013 but returned in 2017 to beat Michael Bisping via submission and win the middleweight belt.

There are few fighters more deserving of the honor than GSP.
