Mixed Martial Arts legend Georges St-Pierre made a surprise visit to Toronto, a city he’s been to multiple times for work including an event for Budweiser earlier this year. St-Pierre, known as one of the greatest MMA Welterweight fighters of all time, was here to promote Arms from Nintendo Switch, a new game which lets you become a fighter with an array of different arms to choose from.
The Montreal native known affectionately by fans as GSP, was out doing the rounds including a stop at Entertainment Tonight Canada where he was nice to stop for pics with fans!

#FIRSTLOOK: “TAKEDOWN: THE DNA OF GSP” GETS LIMITED THEATRICAL RELEASE
UFC Fans can celebrate knowing that TAKEDOWN: THE DNA OF GSP is about to hit theatres! The Documentary, released by Remstar Films, promises to give Fans intimate access to perhaps the great Mixed Martial Artist ever!
TAKEDOWN: THE DNA OF GSP is a feature-length documentary about Georges St-Pierre (aka GSP), reigning UFC Welterweight Champion, and arguably the greatest Mixed Martial Artist of all time. This gentle Warrior grew up in St-Isidore, Quebec. Bullied at school, he learned karate to defend himself and never looked back. He rocketed to the world championship at age 26, only to lose it in his first title defense. GSP fought back and regained his Title, but then suffered a potential career-ending knee injury. He clawed his way back again in an epic battle against Carlos Condit. From there, he defeated his long-time Rival Nick Diaz, the baddest boy in the UFC, whose psychological war of nerves almost got GSP. But like a great champion GSP, handled it all. The Film transforms the violence of ultimate fighting into visual poetry, and uses innovative techniques to convey GSP’s internal state of mind. His admiration for the Darwinian force of nature is conveyed in the Film using the motif of following a lone wolf. Powerful animated sequences also reflect the enormous influence of Eastern philosophy on GSP, a Man who is a true Athlete, and a Master strategist who loves his Sport.
Watch the Trailer below:
Canadians will get a chance to see TAKEDOWN: THE DNA OF GSP in its limited theatrical run, showing February 20 (7:30 PM), February 22 (4 PM) and February 24, 2014 (7:30 PM).
