Play • 1 hr 26 min

This week Jon Murchison, Blackpoint CEO, sits down with one of the all-time greatest fighters in Mixed Martial Arts, Georges St-Pierre.  After training from the age of 7, and becoming a 2nd degree Karate blackbelt by 12, Georges knew that his destiny was to be in the ring and dedicated his life to reaching that goal.  He diversified by adding various disciplines into his training, including boxing, wrestling, and Jiu-Jitsu to become an amateur fighter by 16 and continued in came back stronger in 2008 and regained victory and has not lost a title since.  In 2013 Georges retired, holding the record for most UFC wins in title bouts, and after a four-year hiatus and returned to the ring in 2017 to defeat his opponent and become the UFC Middleweight Champion, he is now the fourth fighter in the history of the sport to be a multi-divisional champion.  

During their compelling conversation in Georges’ hometown of Montreal, he and Jon discuss success, drive, and the determination that it takes to be the best.  They talk about how to use perceived setbacks as an opportunity to learn, grow, and dominate the competition in sport or cybersecurity, and how to apply learnings in the ring or in business.
