Dana White Says Georges St-Pierre Is The No. 1 Superstar In the Sport

By Damon Martin

If you’ve ever wondered who the top star in the UFC is just ask Dana White. The UFC President believes it’s none other that UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who will headline the upcoming UFC 129 show in Toronto in late April.

The charismatic champion has stormed to the top of the welterweight rankings while also becoming a leading spokesman for brands like Under Armour and Gatorade.

St-Pierre has also been voted “Canadian Athlete of the Year” three years in a row, but despite his legendary status in his home country, White says they didn’t need him to have a successful show in Toronto, but it’s a very nice bonus.

“I don’t know if you remember leading up to this fight, I was saying we don’t need to go into Toronto with Georges St-Pierre headlining. Obviously, if you have Georges St-Pierre headlining it doesn’t suck, but it worked out that way and here he is,” White commented.

“Look at the UFC, and one of the great things about the UFC is how many stars we do have. How many guys headline pay-per-views? We went up into Montreal with 2 Brazilians headlining the card. We’ve been in L.A. with Brazilians headlining the card, we’ve been to England with B.J. Penn headlining a card before, people love everybody in the UFC.”
