'The DNA of GSP:' Watch first official preview trailer of upcoming UFC champion Georges St. Pierre documentary

Georges St. Pierre is the first real new version of a mixed martial artist, according to UFC President Dana White, and he just so happens to be the focus of an upcoming feature-length documentary. The official video preview trailer for which you can check out above.

What do Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and wild wolves have in common?

Killer instinct, to hear famed boxing trainer, Freddie Roach, tell it in the official video trailer for "The DNA of GSP," a feature-length documentary on the most decorated and celebrated 170-pound mixed martial arts (MMA) champion in the brief history of the sport.

Sure, St. Pierre has not finished an opponent in his six most recent Octagon appearances, a span that dates back more than four years, but there is no doubt his dedication, athleticism and professional approach to combat sports have elevated him to truly elite status.

Here is how the documentary, which includes commentary from UFC President Dana White and color commentator Joe Rogan, among others, is described:

"Take a look at the human being behind the legend. What separates the merely skilled from the true champion? And the true champion from the living legend? Find the answers in this intimate portrait of an athlete who fought his way from poverty to the top of the world."

"The DNA of GSP" is currently scheduled for release in Fall 2013. In the meantime, the multi-tasking French-Canadian has kept busy inside and outside of the eight-walled cage, returning from knee surgery to dominate Nick Diaz at UFC 158 via unanimous decision back in March and simultaneously starring in "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and voicing "Art" in the Canadian version of "Monsters University."

It's a demanding schedule for a professional fighter, one that Johny Hendricks -- the man who has an "easy as that" gameplan to defeat him later this year -- figures to work in his favor.

Or so he thinks ... much like the aforementioned Roach.
