Georges St-Pierre may have officially called it quits in professional fighting, but he is considered to be one of the best mixed martial artists of all time. He quickly earned the spotlight during his time fighting for the UFC, starting in 2004, and headlined several of the biggest UFC pay-per-views ever before retiring with a 26-2 record. Even now, “GSP” is still the man that even the best in the game want to fight.
MMA legend Georges St-Pierre expressed his excitement to be back in the MCU while talking to Inspired Traveler. Returning as Georges Batroc, who hasn’t been seen since his debut in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he acknowledged the “huge budget” that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was granted and admitted the show is “the biggest thing” he’s ever done.
“It’s a huge budget. It’s the biggest thing I’ve done in my life. It’s really big. I’ve been taking classes to become an actor for a while now. I am working very hard on this. I am very proud of the job I have done on the show. I can’t wait for people to see the result of my work.”
Seems like a big deal, right? Well to St-Pierre, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is apparently even bigger than that. He may just be geeking out (you know, being the total “nerd” that he is), but this is a heavy indicator that St-Pierre’s Georges Batroc will play a much bigger role than his first MCU appearance in The Winter Soldier.
