Early Life of Georges Pierre: Age, Birth
On May 19, 1981, Georges Saint Pierre was born in Saint-Isidore, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada. He is a Canadian citizen and is 40 years old. He is also French-Canadian and was born under the sign of Taurus. He goes by the moniker GSP and is a devout Christian.
Roland Saint Pierre (father) and Myriam Saint Pierre (mother) are his parents (mother). His father worked as a carpenter for decks and flooring, and his mother worked in a nursing home. Similarly, he is his parents’ eldest and only son. His younger sister, Myriam, is one of his two younger sisters.
He attended Ecole Pierre-Bedard, a local high school, for his education. He went on to Cegep Edouard-Montpetit to study kinesiology. His money and clothes were routinely stolen by other students at his school. He opted to learn Kyokushin Karate from his father and later from a Kyokushin Karate Master as a result of the bullying.
After his karate master died, he began attending wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and boxing training. He worked as a bouncer at Fuzzy Brossard, a Montreal nightclub, and as a garbage collector to support himself and pay his school tuition.

When he fought Matt Penn at UFC 94 on January 31, 2009, he was involved in a controversy. Matt, on the other hand, was a touch more dominant in the opening round. When Georges’ cornerman, Jason Parillo, requested that the fight be stopped in the fourth round, the referee agreed. George’s victory was marked by scandal, as one might imagine.

Career and Professional Life
At the age of 21, Georges became a professional mixed martial artist. He had already obtained his black belt in Kyokushin Karate at the time. In his debut professional mixed martial arts encounter, he faced Salvadoran-Canadian fighter Ivan Menjivar on January 25, 2002 at UCC 7: Bad Boyz.
At UCC 10: Battles, he faced defending champion Justin Bruckmann for the UCC Welterweight Championship. In the first round of UCC 11: The Next Level on October 11, 2002, he surrendered his opponent title to Travis Galbraith. He fought and defeated Pete Spratt at the TKO 14: Road Warriors event on November 29, 2003.
On January 31, 2004, he made his UFC debut against Karo Parisyan at UFC 46, winning by unanimous decision. At UFC 48, he faced Jay Hieron in his next fight. He won the first round by technical knockout after dominating his opponent from the start. In his third UFC fight, he fought his first major opponent. When George was rising through the ranks, Matt Hughes was already a well-known personality in the sport. On October 22, 2004, they competed for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 50.
Despite holding his own against a considerably more experienced opponent for the duration of the battle, Matt grabbed his opponent in an armbar and tapped him with only 10 seconds left in the first round. He later confessed that defeating Matt at the moment was the finest thing that could have happened to him. He would meet Matt again two years later at UFC 65, and this time he would win.
He won the UFC Welterweight Championship by technical knockout in the second round over Hughes. In his tenth UFC fight, he was defeated for the second time in his career. Georges was defeated by a relatively unknown Matt Serra in the first round by technical knockout, therefore relinquishing his welterweight belt. He defeated Josh Koscheck by unanimous decision at UFC 74 and Hughes via verbal submission in their third fight at UFC 79 before taking on Matt at UFC 83. Matt was defeated in the second round and lost his welterweight belt.
After recovering the title, he faced Jon Fitch in his first title defense. He was proclaimed the winner by unanimous judgment after the match went the distance. “The Fight of the Night” was also given to the match.
He defeated Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck, Jake Shields, Nick Diaz, and Johny Hendricks between 2010 and 2013. After defeating Johny in a split decision on December 13, 2013, he willingly vacated the title and made the news public. He also told the press that he would be retiring from the sport. He reclaimed the UFC Middleweight Championship after defeating Michael Bisping at UFC 217. He also resigned after 34 days since he was suffering from ulcerative colitis and did not want to slow down the division.
In the 2009 action thriller film ‘Never Surrender,’ he made his acting debut as a character named after himself. He also played alongside another MMA fighter Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson in Hector Echavarria’s action flick ‘Hell’s Chain’ that year.
He made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Georges Batroc / The Leaper in the 2014 superhero picture “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” a character nicknamed “John Claude Van Damme of the 1960s” by writer Mark Waid. Van Damme and Georges have been friends for a long time and collaborated on the 2016 martial arts film ‘Kickboxer: Vengeance.’ He co-starred in the action crime film ‘Cartels’ with Steven Seagal in 2017.
