UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre will face off against a fellow Montreal native, when he takes on 270-lb NHL enforcer Georges Laraque of the Montreal Canadiens in a grappling match at the Tristar Gym. The match will air on TSN's Off the Record this Friday. "First we will do a wrestling match, because he believes that he is going to be able to put me down at will, and I believe that I am going to be able to put him down at will," St-Pierre told TSN. "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." HT: MMA Fighting Photo HT: Canada.com
