Video: 'Nervous' Georges St. Pierre announces he's fighting Kurt Sloane today in Thailand

Former UFC welterweight champion and part-time hoops star Georges St. Pierre is in Bangkok, Thailand, where he's gearing up to "fight" Jean-Claude Van Damme, his longtime idol and the man who played Kurt Sloane in the 1989 martial arts classic "Kickboxer." Alongside former Strikeforce attraction Gina Carano and WWE bruiser Dave Bautista, "Rush" has been cast in the big-budget remake, which also stars GLORY standouts "Bazooka Joe" Valtellini and Joe "Stitch 'Em Up" Schilling.
