Despite him, former mixed martial arts champion George St-Pierre posted an article on his social network on Tuesday, creating false hopes for supporters.
The rumor machine didn’t spend much time. The GSP was also forced to clarify the matter by stating that it was not announcing its withdrawal from the competition.
Instead, it announced a partnership with Budweiser. Saint-Pierre became one of its non-alcoholic beer ambassadors on Wednesday.
“We should write that this is not a struggle. I apologize to the supporters and assure you that this will not happen again.
“I never want to deceive fans just to get attention. All I want to do is announce that I have joined a new team and joined a company I love. I don’t want to belittle others.”
As the saying goes, it was through making mistakes that we learned in this misfortune, and Saint-Pierre quickly learned.
“My phone rang. My boxing coach Stéphan Larouche called me and told me that my post was very mysterious. I told myself that I must change it as soon as possible,” he said.
“To be honest, I have a team that works with me on social media. They are the best among humans. Yesterday’s post [mardi] It can be done in a way that we can avoid all these ways. “
With the support of Quebecers and martial arts enthusiasts around the world, GSP hopes to maintain its relationship with the audience.
“This is a relationship I really like. I don’t take it for granted. That’s why I will be more vigilant in the future.”
Even if he is not ready to return to the octagon, the former champion has not been idle for the past year.
Saint Pierre is busy filming in one of Marvel’s new TV series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” The natives of Saint-Isidore play the evil Georges Batroc there.
