“I’ve been inducted in the hall of fame but this event today, with this monument, it’s probably the most important thing that I ever had in my entire career,” St-Pierre said at the ceremony.
A three-time former UFC welterweight champion, St-Pierre was inducted into the modern wing of the UFC Hall of Fame in May 2020.
