Canada vs Sweden score: Georges St. Pierre and Alexander Gustafsson bet on Olympic hockey gold medal game in Sochi 2014


If you're a hockey fan and reading this in America, chances are you're considerably butt hurt.

What do Georges St. Pierre and Alexander Gustafsson have in common?

They both lost very close decisions in their last fights. Zing! (I'll be all weekend folks, try the veal). All kidding aside, both "Rush" and "The Mauler" are being represented in the gold medal hockey game at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, as Team Canada is all set to tangle with Team Sweden in a battle for first place.

And there's more than just international bragging rights on the line in Sochi, at least for hardcore mixed martial arts (MMA) fans.

That's because St. Pierre has agreed to wear Sweden's jersey if Team Canada loses -- and vice versa -- thanks to an impromptu wager on their official Twitter accounts.

From St. Pierre:


Gustafsson responds:


Based on these jerseys, there are no winners in this bet.

Canada is currently a -200 favorite to Sweden's +165 and CBS Sports has a nice fact sheet for tomorrow morning's (Feb. 23, 2014) big game overseas:

St. Pierre is currently enjoying a hiatus from his duties under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner (details), while Gustafsson is gearing up to battle Jimi Manuwa in the UFC Fight Night 37 main event on March 8, 2014, in London, England.

And no matter what happens in Sochi, I wouldn't plan on seeing any maple leafs on his walkout tee.
