Georges St-Pierre attempts to smash glass bottle with powerful kick

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Georges St-Pierre is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time but many new fans of the sport don’t realize just how great GSP was.

During his title reign he defeated all comers, most of the time in dominant fashion. For every new challenger that was touted as the next big thing, GSP outclassed them all with a well-rounded and strategic game, using perfect technique.

He was also one of the first fighters to make big bucks with sponsorships and endorsements like we see in the video below that took place during the filming of a Bud Light commercial.

Alongside UFC announcer Bruce Buffer, GSP demonstrates the same kick that knocked out Matt Hughes at UFC 65 that saw GSP first win the welterweight title.

Bruce Buffer holds up a glass bottle as a target and GSP completely shatters it with an accurate and technical roundhouse kick. Look at how he follows through perfectly and gets right back into his fight stance.

GSP recently announced his return to fighting after a long time off and was expected to face Michael Bisping for the middleweight title. However, now the prospect of that fight has fallen through and now appears to be shattered just like the glass bottle in this video.
