11 Famous Actors and Their Embarrassing Early Film Roles

GSP vs. Hieron, Menjivar, and Strasser

As we approach the big showdown on Saturday night, here’s some lesser-known Georges St. Pierre fights to get you in the mood. First, it’s St. Pierre’s second Octagon appearance at UFC 48, where he beats down current IFL welterweight champ Jay Hieron in under two minutes. Next, it’s GSP’s first pro fight, where Rush staves off the scrappy Ivan Menjivar to score a very questionable TKO via verbal tapout at the end of the first round. And finally, it’s the “GoldenPalace.com” TKO fight against Dave Strasser, which St. Pierre took after his first career loss (vs. Matt Hughes at UFC 50); lovely half-guard to side-control pass at 5:11 and the fight-ending kimura is just as slick.

I never realized that the clip they always show of GSP tagging that dude with a right causing him to collapse to his knees against the fence was Hieron. GSP was tagging him at will.

if you listen to GSP's translator you will see Menjivar did NOT tap...GSP stated the guy was saying "ok...ok" as in "i am ok!".
