Video: 18-year-old Georges St-Pierre competing in an amateur MMA bout

See footage of current UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in an amateur MMA bout from March 3rd, 2000!

Here's a cool "blast from the past" that MMA fans might enjoy. Next month will be Georges St-Pierre's 9th consecutive title defense as he faces Johny Hendricks in the main event of UFC 167. Thirteen years ago in his native Quebec, 18-year-old GSP fought in this amateur bout (whose opponent's name I cannot make out based on the audio), winning by 1st round TKO. You can view the full fight in the above clip. It's always great to see archival footage of today's best and most experienced MMA fighters in their early stages.

Interestingly enough, this video was taken by Ivan Menjivar, who GSP would later fight (and defeat by TKO) in his professional debut on January 25th, 2002.
