GSP in black belt club
It wasn’t just any Saturday at the Tristar martial arts academy, in Montreal, Canada.
The Jiu-Jitsu class, with around 50 participants, was more crowded than usual. But the UFC welterweight champion, Georges Saint-Pierre, suspected nothing.
And he was moved when medical researcher and holder of several Jiu-Jitsu titles Bruno Fernandes promoted him to the status of black belt in Jiu-Jitsu.
“This was the high point in my career,” an emotional Saint-Pierre confessed, when laying out the three happiest moments of his life:
“When I received my black belt in karate, when I conquered the UFC belt, and today.”
The promotion echoed in New York and, Renzo Gracie, who has taught Jiu-Jitsu to the Canadian star in the past before his collision course with Renzo student Matt Serra, approved:
“He more than deserves it. This was excellent new for the fight world,” said the teacher.
To Gracie Barrra black belt Fernandes, who has been living in Canada for the last few years, where he earned his PhD and researches cancer treatments, and thus has been teaching the martial arts phenomenon for years, it was a great honor to fasten the black belt and say:
“Welcome to the club!”
