MMA Superstar, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre or simply known as GSP has signed on with 888Poker as part of a global endorsement deal. Canada’s own Rush St-Pierre is one of the most recognizable faces in the sport of mixed martial arts, and has won several awards as Canada’s best athlete.
GSP will immediately become a member of Team 888poker.com and will play in the 2012 World Series of Poker main event.
“I am very excited to become a global brand ambassador for Team 888poker,” St-Pierre said. “I have wanted to play poker for a while now as it is a great game of skill. It is not just your cards versus my cards; it is you versus your opponent. However, the most important aspect of my partnership with 888poker is that we are going to generate a great deal of money for my foundation that dedicates its efforts towards anti-bullying causes.
Georges has been playing a lot of online poker the past few weeks to gear up for the bigger tournaments including the WSOP. Signup for 888poker and get a chance to knockout GSP, as we know you probably won’t be able to in the octagon. On Monday April 16th, 2012 at 7:30pm EST, there will be a special $5,000 GSP FREEROLL to celebrate this signing. This freeroll will be exclusive to Canadian players only.
Also by signing up at 888, you get $8 FREE with no deposit required.
