Canadian Georges St-Pierre has long been a fan favorite in his home country. He’s also been a lifelong fan of and participant in the game of hockey.
After taking the middleweight title from Michael Bisping at UFC 217, St-Pierre returned home as a special guest of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team, where he was charged with dropping the puck in a pre-game ceremony.
As he took to the ice, the fans went wild, giving St-Pierre – only the fourth man in UFC history to hold titles in two division – a raucous welcome at the Bell Centre.
