A former UFC champion in two categories, the famous canadian George St-Pierre does not see anything wrong if the world’s largest MMA promotion will organize real matches Selbst to promote the sport, and also benefit financially due to spectator interest.
In particular, George two hands to each other face stuffed old foes and star fighters of the last century, another Jean-Claude van Damme and Steven Seagal.
“The world has changed and we must evolve with it, said St. Pierre at a press conference in Australia. – The UFC is becoming more and more mainstream, and to attract a large audience, you need to have more mainstream athletes. I think it’s a good thing, just don’t confuse who is who”.
“Yes, I fully support the fight of van Damme and Seagal. Absolutely. We’re artists, and if so, then decisions are made based on financial gain. Especially after the UFC changed owners,” he said.
“They need to pay back large loans, and it is therefore not surprising that they are looking at this as a business. I understand that sometimes it’s upsetting, but I think these areas should be combined,” concluded St. Pierre.
