The following video of Georges St Pierre, a.k.a. “Rush”, chronicles his road back to a second UFC title shot. After losing to Matt Hughes in a championship bout for the vacant UFC welterweight title in 2004, St. Pierre worked his way back into title contention. On the way back he beat some of the very best the sport has to offer. Some of the big names he defeated on the way back are Jason Miller, Frank Trigg, Sean Sherk and B.J. Penn. On 11/18/2006 GSP stepped into the octagon to fight Hughes for the title once again. He emerged victorious, with the UFC welterweight title in hand and a second round K.O. of Hughes on his record.
It should be noted that the video is missing one fight that St. Pierre had during that time. Shortly after he lost to Hughes, he fought Dave Strasser in Canada’s TKO organization. GSP won by kimura in the first round.
