“If you want to be a champion you need to train like one”- Georges St-Pierre
GSP Training with Firas Zahabi
People often say, ‘Ah, ultimate fighting is so violent,’ but it’s rooted in martial arts. Martial arts incarnate respect. You can’t walk into a dojo and say to your sensei, ‘Hey, salut tabarnac!’ After every one of my fights I go and shake the hand of my opponent. I don’t need to hate the other fighter to fight him well. It’s a sport.
Georges St. Pierre on ESPN’s Sports Science
"A wireless accelerometer registers GSP’s punch at over 2,800 pounds of force; and a kick at over 3.400 pounds of force. When GSP executes a punch-kick combo, he can deliver over 6,000 pounds of force in just under one second."
