Georges St-Pierre Joins Karate Combat Announce Team
Former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre will announce the upcoming Karate Combat card.
Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre has remained busy in retirement.
Along with work in movies, St-Pierre has also joined the Karate Combat team.
At Karate Combat 35, he will make his debut at the announce table alongside Bas Rutten. GSP’s former training partner, Dean Barry, and former sparring partner, Raymond Daniels, are both set for action.
Karate Combat 35 takes place Saturday, August 27 from Orlando.
St-Pierre – himself a Kyokushin Karate black belt who won the North American title at just 16 years old before transitioning to MMA and going on to set an unbroken nine-defense record of the UFC welterweight championship – has only ever previously commentated on UFC broadcasts for Canadian television.
“There are some great fights on this card and I am really looking forward to being right next to The Pit for this. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun calling the fights and sharing some insights with the fans around the world. Karate was my first martial art, the foundation of my career, and I’m a big fan of what Karate Combat is doing for the sport,” said St-Pierre.
St-Pierre has been part of the broadcast line-up since Karate Combat: Season 3, when he was unveiled alongside Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida as one of the two ‘season sensei’ who would be offering analysis and insights to viewers and fighters alike as the season progressed.
