Georges St. Pierre vs Georges Laraque grappling match on 'Off the Record'

Georgesx2_medium

MMA vs. Boxing has been a hot topic lately. But MMA vs. Hockey?

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has accepted a challenge from friend and fellow Canadian Georges Laraque for a grappling match at the Tristar Gym in Montreal.

TSN will broadcast the showdown on Friday, May 21, 2010, at 6 p.m. ET on "Off the Record."

The 33-year old heavyweight hockey player, who last skated for the Montreal Canadiens, appeared with "Rush" on a recent episode of "Off the Record," where he promised to use his weight advantage against GSP and "pick him up and body slam him."

St. Pierre doesn't see it that way.

"The problem is Georges believes I am like a tomato can you can grab at the supermarket and you can lift it and do what you want. He's going to find out that it's not that easy. On the ice I would never go against him, he's going to beat me and I agree with that 100 percent, but on the floor I have no problem."

GSP is considered one of the sport's finest wrestlers depsite having no collegiate background. How he deals with Laraque's size and strength will all boil down to technique and speed.

No one in the UFC seems to have an answer for St. Pierre's takedowns. Will "BGL?" Tune into "Off the Record" on Friday night to find out.
