If you’re an MMA fan, chances are, other enthusiasts have asked you “Who is in your MMA Mount Rushmore?” The same list of GOAT considered names usually surfaces on everyone’s mind. Two of those names are UFC legends Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre. Fans often dreamed of the two men fighting and recently, the pair squared off in a promotional video.
The two men appeared in Las Vegas for an event with a health and wellness company called Limitless. The pair also faced off for the company with numerous photos surfacing on the internet, as well as a video of the footage below:
In the short video, you can see both Silva and St Pierre standing toe to toe for a few seconds, and then smiling at each other afterward. Growing the Limitless brand with the legends was an incredible idea. The brand is aware of how bad MMA fans have wanted both Silva and Georges to fight in their primes.
