Gustafsson Loses Olympic Bet to GSP

SWEDE ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON LOST A BET TO GSP, SO HE HAD TO WEAR A CANADIAN HOCKEY JERSEY
By Fightland Staff
"The Winter Olympics are over, the future of its host city is uncertain, both Canadian hockey team earned a gold medal in Sochi’s balmy climes, and Georges St-Pierre defeated two UFC fighters in one week. Sort of.

"After the men’s semifinals, when Canada shut out the U.S. team for the first time since 1976, whoever runs GSP’s Twitter account these days tweeted that former UFC lightweight and longstanding American citizen John Cholish had lost a bet with the recently retired welterweight champion. For his sins, Cholish was forced to don a Canadian hockey jersey, and St. Pierre had the photos to prove it. With Sweden in the finals opposite Canada, GSP extended the same offer to light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson, the man who almost beat Jon Jones in September and definitely beat St. Pierre via fan vote to make his way onto the cover of the forthcoming EA Sports UFC video game."
