Georges St-Pierre will be defending his UFC welterweight title against Johny Hendricks come this November, but you will be able to see him in the Octagon this week.
That’s because he just filmed a commercial for FOX Sports 1 that is set to debut on FOX this Tuesday during the annual Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
St-Pierre is one of the most popular fighters in the sport, so it comes as no surprise he was chosen for this promotional spot for the yet-to-debut sports channel.
FOX Sports 1 will host UFC programming and fight cards, starting with UFC on FOX Sports 1 on August 17.
“I had butterflies like I’m fighting in the Octagon; they recreated the environment very well,” St-Pierre said during the on-set clip above.
“My acting is just as good as my Chinese—terrible—I had to do a lot of takes to make it believable,” he stated sarcastically.
Check out the video clip above. Tune in to FOX during Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game to see the full promo.
