Retirement might last just a little bit longer for Georges St-Pierre. The History Channel in Canada just announced a new show where the UFC champ will host a show on digging for dinosaurs.
The Boneyard with Georges St-Pierre, will feature GSP and a shovel as he travels the world to search for fossils. The two-part special will debut on April 14 and, by the looks of things, GSP couldn't be more excited to start digging.
This passion for dinosaurs and documentaries isn't new to the iconic athlete. In 2010, GSP told reporters that he doesn't watch much sports on TV, and when he has the time to relax, he usually watches shows about prehistoric life:
Seriously, I'm into paleontology. That's the study of prehistoric life. I'm into philosophy. And psychology too. You know that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was found with feathers? Yes, feathers!
GSP will get a chance to live his childhood dream of "hunting" for some of the most vicious animals to ever walk on the Earth. During the special two-part debut, GSP will travel to the corners of the South Dakota Badlands, the Alabama swamps and the dinosaur graveyard of Patagonia, Argentina.
Science just seems to be GSP's hobby when he gets time to himself, even during training:
When I train, I love to take time off and fly to the Natural History Museum or an exhibition. I just love that. When you know your past, it will help you with your future. That's why most of my friends are not fighters. Most of my friends are nerds like me. That's why I have a hard time finding a girlfriend. I need someone to talk science with.
Hopefully his new show doesn't put the nail in the coffin to the rumor he plans on making his return to the Octagon. If it doesn't, GSP should decide to make his comeback soon, before he himself becomes a dinosaur of the UFC.
