Georges St-Pierre and Eugenie Bouchard ran into each other in Miami recently. The Canadians were in the city for their respective ventures. But they managed the time to meet each other up despite their busy schedule.
The 2014 Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard was visibly excited to meet St-Pierre. And for the former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion, he looks happy as always.
Eugenie Bouchard and St-Pierre are two of Canada’s most prominent sportspersons in the recent past. St-Pierre has been out of the Octagon since defeating Michael Bisping to capture the middleweight belt at UFC 217. But, his accolades as the most successful welterweight champion in the history of the UFC are still prominent in the fans’ minds.
Bouchard has had her fair share of success in the WTA. She has been an Austrian Open semifinalist in 2014, Roland Garros semifinalist in the same year, and reached the Wimbledon final in the same year. The glamourous 26-year-old Tennis star has been jinxed through her time in the Slams as she is yet to win at any of the four events.
St-Pierre excited his fans earlier this month when he posted about an important upcoming announcement. Many believed the legend would return to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, but those hopes turned into disappointment soon.
The important announcement turned out to be ‘GSP’s’ new endorsement deal. Not any potential comeback or a super-fight. St-Pierre is almost 40 now. Hence, it is highly unlikely fans will ever see the legendary Canadian superstar compete again inside the Octagon.
What do you make of St-Pierre and Bouchard’s sudden meet in Miami? Can Bouchard finally become a Grand Slam champion in 2021? Let us know your thoughts.
