George St-Pierre ‘Rush’

George St-Pierre got the nickname ‘Rush’ because early in his MMA career he would finish his opponents quickly, usually in the first round. A promoter described St Pierre’s fighting style as being like a rush of adrenaline.

St-Pierre later in his career became a more calculated fighter, where many of his fights would go the full 5 rounds.

Outside of MMA, St-Pierre has featured in movies such as ‘Kickboxer: Vengeance” with Jean-Claude Van Damme, “killing Salazar” with Steven Segal, and his most notable role as ass-kicking bad guy in Marvel’s blockbuster “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
