Former UFC welterweight and middleweight world champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre just had a brush with death while on African Safari.
The beloved Canadian Mixed Martial Artists was luckily with paid guides when a full grown gorilla charged at him in a fit of rage. The guides quickly instructed GSP to become submissive and avoid an attack.
Below is what was caught on video of the incident.

This video was taken in Africa seconds after an alpha gorilla charged me. I had to take a submissive posture and get out of his way. One of the most frightening and incredible experiences of my life – even with all the fight training in the world I wouldn’t have been a match! pic.twitter.com/pn5N8X2J1t
