GSP to play in 2012 World Series of Poker


As Georges St-Pierre continues to rehabilitate his torn ACL, he needs somewhere to put his competitive energy. So GSP signed a sponsorship deal with 888, an online gaming company. Through that sponsorship, he'll play in the 2012 World Series of Poker. He will also play in online special games that will benefit his anti-bullying charity.

However, the most important aspect of my partnership with 888poker is that we are going to generate a great deal of money for my foundation that dedicates its efforts towards anti-bullying causes.

Fellow fighter Mike Swick, finished 10th of more than 2,000 in a WSOP event  in 2010. UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer is also a poker aficionado, and has his own poker room at the Luxor in Las Vegas.
