Georges St-Pierre vs. NHL/Montreal Canadiens Vet Georges Laraque

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, has formally agreed to a grappling match against former Montreal Canadiens forward, Georges Laraque, a thirty three year old NHL veteran. The match will take at the Tristar gym in Montreal although a date has yet to be confirmed.

St-Pierre, speaking via TSN, said:

“First we will do a wrestling match, because he believes that he is going to be able to put me down at will, and I believe that I am going to be able to put him down at will. On the ice I would never go against him, he’s going to beat me and I agree with that 100 percent, but on the floor I have no problem.”

“The problem is Georges [Laraque] believes I am like a tomato you can grab at the supermarket and you lift it and do what you want. He’s going to find out that it’s not that easy.”
