Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar Georges St.-Pierre will be in Manila on September 23 for a meet-and-greet event with local mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, according to Balls Channel.

St.-Pierre, the reigning UFC welterweight champion, will be in the country up to September 25 to promote MMA.

His 3-day visit will culminate with an open training at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

The 29-year-old Canadian has an MMA record of 20 wins with only 2 losses. He is due to defend his belt for the 5th time versus Josh Koscheck on Dec. 11’s UFC 124.
St.-Pierre, who is known for his monikers “GSP” and “Rush,” is known for his well-rounded game. He dominated the welterweight division by sweeping his last 7 fights against topnotch opponents, including fellow future Hall of Famers Matt Hughes and BJ Penn.

Balls Channel earlier brought MMA legend Chuck Liddell and Fil-Am light heavyweight Brandon Vera to Manila to bring UFC closer to local fans.
