World leading mixed martial arts champion visits the North West with Love Hemp

One of the greatest fighters in mixed martial arts history visited the North West at the weekend.

Love Hemp ambassador and former UFC Welterweight and Middleweight Champion Georges St-Pierre gave a masterclass at the Combat Sports Agency gym in Deeside, North Wales.

On Sunday the UFC legend also met hundreds of fans at an event hosted by the Izakaya Lounge in Chester including winners of a Love Hemp and Sporf competition to spend an afternoon with the man who has been described as “The perfect fighting machine”.

Love Hemp sponsors the Canadian Georges St-Pierre, who was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in September and is a fan of the brand’s CBD Infused Body Salve.

Love Hemp is also the official global CBD partner of the UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organisation, and counts boxing legend Anthony Joshua as an investor.

Ian Munzberger, Love Hemp’s Chief Partnerships Officer, said: “We love bringing stars like Georges St-Pierre to exclusive events like this.

“It’s a chance for fans to not only meet their heroes but, for our competition winners, to attend unique masterclasses and to train alongside world-leading athletes.”

Georges St-Pierre said: “It was my first time in the North West and it was great to visit the beautiful city of Chester and to see North Wales. It was exciting to experience the huge interest in mixed martial arts in the region. The support that Love Hemp is giving to the sport is making a big difference.”
