Georges St-Pierre made history in the UFC. Now he is part of the Canadian Museum of History.
The museum in Gatineau, Que., has acquired the championship belt the mixed martial arts fighter from Montreal won at UFC 94 in 2009. It also has a pair of gloves and shorts that he wore.
"We are very pleased to be the first institution to add to our collection a piece of memorabilia related to Georges St-Pierre, and in so doing recognize both his exceptional career and the popularity of mixed martial arts in Canada," Mark O'Neill, president and CEO of the Canadian Museum of History said in a statement.
