Georges St Pierre and Virat Kohli are two names that need no introduction. GSP is one of the best MMA Fighters out there and is a former two-division UFC champion.

Virat Kohli, on the other hand, is a cricketing icon and has a long list of records to his name. It is not every day that these two cross paths and such an incident happened back in 2016.

It all started in 2016 when BCCI tweeted out a picture of the Indian Cricket team interacting with NBA players in the United States. GSP, who is known as a fan of cricket, welcomed the Indian team and Virat Kohli to the US.

“Welcome to America @imVkohli! Show me how you run the pitch and I’ll show you how to own the octagon #TeamIndiainUSA,” GSP tweeted.

Virat Kohli decided to take up the invite and expressed his interest in learning MMA.

“Thank You for the Welcome @GeorgesStPierre, I would love to enter the Octagon & learn a few things #TeamIndiainUSA” the Cricket star wrote on his Twitter.

Whether or not the two met still remains as a mystery.
