“It's an honour for me to have this award and being the first MMA guy to receive something like this,” said St-Pierre in a statement. “I want to congratulate the other nominees because they have done an incredible job in their respective sports, making this an even more special honour. I want to thank Rogers Sportsnet & Joe Ferraro for promoting the sport of MMA, because without them the sport would not be as well known as it is right now in Canada. I want to thank everybody for their support and voting for me - I want to be a good Canadian ambassador for the sport and represent MMA well."

St-Pierre, who is preparing for his UFC 94 showdown with BJ Penn on January 31st, joins Sidney Crosby and Steve Nash as winners of the award.
