I Met My Childhood Hero — And He Was Everything I Hoped He Would Be
Georges St-Pierre is one of the greatest MMA fighters ever. He was the most dominant champion in Welterweight history, a true-blue superstar who somehow managed to transcend the sport while remaining a class act in and out of the ring.
