View Full Version : GSP signs deal with Gatorade

Joining a list of athletes like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning and many, many more, Georges St. Pierre, has signed on to be a major part of Gatorade's latest campaign as one of the faces of their "G" marketing onslaught.

The Gatorade "G" campaign launched in the U.S. during the Super Bowl in January with many top flight athletes representing the brand. Now the company will move north of the border with a group of Canadian athletes to represent the brand.

Along with other top Canadians such as Gordie Howe, Cassie Campbell, Ray Zahab, Chantal Petitclerc, and Bradd Arseneau, St. Pierre will serve as one of the leaders to help push Gatorade in the newly branded market.

“Just like in the U.S., the Canadian Gatorade brand is recognizing some of our nation’s most influential and inspiring athletes,” said Dale Hooper, vice president of marketing for Gatorade in Canada. “These athletes represent Canada’s best while also serving as motivation to any Canadian who sweats, whether they’re in it to win, for the fun of it, or for better health.”

St. Pierre's addition to the Gatorade campaign can only be seen as a huge step forward for the marketing and advertising future of mixed martial artists who are looking to cross over into more mainstream work.

Late last year, the UFC welterweight champion signed on with CAA, a division of Creative Arts Agency, to help push the Canadian fighter into new markets including movies, television, licensing and digital media.

This latest move for St. Pierre to sign on with Gatorade signals the first MMA fighter to be involved with the popular sports drink brand, and a definite sign of the competitors involved with MMA moving forward to being more widely recognized alongside other top athletes.

St. Pierre filmed his first commercial for Gatorade over the last week while also working on the latest film the Canadian has been involved with, the second motion picture he has starred in over the last year.

I am gonna have to say that GSP is the best person right now for the face of mma ... he is a gentlemen among mostly animals, his skill set is second to none .. the only thing that is a question mark is that accent, but i think that is a bonus .. remember how big Van Damme was .. it was the accent ...

I think GSP is good for MMA as well. He's not perfect, but who is? He's polite, well groomed and very skilled. What more do you want?

If that means I should be the subject of abuse, BRING IT ON!

"WALK"? I used to listen to that before hockey games to get me pumped up. Usually resulted in a 2-minute minor on my first shift.

He may or may not be the "best" choice for the face of MMA but he should certainly be on a very short list of fighters.

Matt would no doubt be a better choice, but today, the people at gatorade are probably looking for someone who is on top now ... as for fedor, most people in the US still don't know who he is ... if the company were trying to hock tamagachi's in japan, fedor would be the choice .. but as for MMA here in NA, GSP is the obvious choice

Yeah that would be so great for PR (public relations) to have GSP whos been accused of over-greasing. Explain that to the people.. I guess while they are at it throw in some steroid users huh!?! Makes me wanna drink Gatorade cheaters n steroid users!! yaaay..:

kidding of course, but I agree 100%, he's a great fighter with unbelievable talent, but I'm tired of hearing about him, I'm tired of hearing his voice, I'm sick of hearing him considered so godly, I don't like his excuses for losing, and I just think that he talks all sweet to the media, but I just have this feeling he is a prick behind the scenes
