St-Pierre to date has had 22 career fights—he’s only come up short twice, to Matt Hughes and Matt Serra. Those loses he would avenge in typical “Rush-esque” fashion.
St-Pierre is a world class MMA-ist in every sense of the word—Jiu-jitsu black belt, Gaidojutsu black belt, Kyokushin 3rd black belt, accomplished wrestler and he’s also well versed in Muay-Thai and boxing, not to mention his core strength.
