UFC 124: Georges St-Pierre and the 10 Most Well-Rounded MMA Fighters (w/Video)
When the Ultimate Fighting Championship invades Montreal for UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2, it will mark the organization's fifth appearance North of the Border. The event will be the Bell Centre's fourth, with UFC 115 in Vancouver rounding out the Canadian quintet.
The event will also mark a possible crowning moment for UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre.
Fighting in his native province, Quebec's favorite son has a chance to defend his belt for a fifth time. That would tie him with Hall of Famer Matt Hughes for most welterweight title defenses in the history of the UFC.
Considering GSP's stated adulation of Hughes, you have to believe the feat would mean almost as much to him as shutting Kos' yapper in front of his hometown faithful.
The 29-year-old might not possess the flashy career highlights of his fellow pound-for-pound elites like Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo, but St-Pierre remains comfortably in their company.
Arguably the most athletic champion in in the UFC's stable, Rush combines his unique physicality with an equally singular cerebral approach to grind out—if not dominate—round after round after round after round.
And Josh Koscheck has made him angry.
Well done, Kos, well done.
Georges St-Pierre is nothing if not versatile and he is one of three most unassailable fighters in mixed martial arts today.
As a primer for Saturday's main event and in the Canuck's honor, here's a list of the sport's 10 most well-rounded practitioners.
