St-Pierre, who is more used to the driving and road rules of Canada, got confused in the UK where they drive on the left.

“One thing that happen a lot to me when I come to UK is before I cross the street I look on my left and then on my right. But here the cars come on the other side so gotta be careful. I nearly got hit by a car today so I gotta wake up. Jet lag is getting to me, guys,” said St-Pierre on his Instagram story.
