Having discovered that MMA Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre loves red wine we knew that we just had to meet with him.
Our opportunity arose when we were invited to meet GSP recently at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts for the Canadian premiere of “The Striking Truth:” This documentary is based on the juxtaposing careers of charismatic and humble current Welterweight Campion of the UFC, Georges St-Pierre and the dynamic MMA fighter David “The Crow” Loiseau.
This red-carpet evening also included a live and interactive one on one question and answer period with Rogers Sportsnet Joe “Showdown” Ferraro host of MMA Connected and main cast members of the film, Welterweight Champion of UFC Georges St-Pierre: David Loiseau MMA Fighter: and director/producer of the documentary Steven J.Wong: from Steven J. Wong Films.
We also had a chance to chat with “Kenny Cabernet”, world renowned enologist and international wine consultant who explained the health benefits of red wine, and why Pinot Noir is one of the healthiest grapes packing the biggest antioxidant punch, which by the way is GSP’s favourite wine! The Wine Ladies TV, “One Sip At A Time” was there to capture it all.
When we discovered that UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is a wine lover, we knew we had to meet him. The opportunity arose recently when we were invited to attend the world premiere of “The Striking Truth” an exclusive documentary for charismatic Ultimate Fighting Champion Georges St-Pierre and dynamic MMA fighter David “The Crow” Loiseau.
The movie follows the two fighters over the past four years, starting with UFC 58 USA vs. Canada where Loiseau was fighting for the championship against Rich Franklin and St-Pierre was the co-main event against BJ Penn. The film juxtaposes their two careers with St-Pierre’s meteoric rise to UFC champion and Loiseau facing personal challenges, charting their respective ups and downs as they follow their paths.
The Striking Truth includes exclusive, never-before-seen footage of all that took place behind the scenes. The Project is directed by Steven J. Wong and is executive produced by James Hergott with action directing by Bobby Razak. What an amazing night!
