UFC 83: George St. Pierre Discusses His Game Plan And Training Techniques

George St-Pierre is pretty much wrapping it up this week as he seems to be both mentally and physically prepared for the upcoming fight against Matt Serra at UFC 83.  Serra holds the belt and GSP just wants it back in his hands. 

However, GSP understands that in order to achieve the welterweight title it is important to have a good strategy and excellent training techniques.  He discusses his training and what he thinks are the 4 most important disciplines in mixed martial arts.

Here’s a snip from GSP as he was recently interviewed by

"I always train with better wrestlers than me, better
boxers than me, better jujitsu guys than me…When you train with people who are
better than you, it keeps challenging you. By challenging me it makes me
better. It makes you better develop your skills than someone who is always
training with the same people over and over again. I have a very good team…I
train six days a week, two training sessions a day. I box, go the gym and I
have a lot of great training partners. I train with guys who are going to the
Olympics, and I train with some of the best jujitsu guys in the world. In every
type of training I do, I train with better guys than me so I always develop my
skills…When I have a fight, and the fight is getting closer, let’s say a month
before the fight, I don’t train by just boxing, or just wrestling. I train more
MMA, and what I mean by that is I make training partners come here and I mix
all the training together, like kickboxing, submission, takedown on the ground,
to really give me the reflex and the momentum for the fight…I do boxing,
wrestling, Muay Thai, jujitsu — that’s the four disciplines that I do. I also
do sprinting and strength-conditioning.”
