Episode six is finally here, and it’s a big one because we’re about to witness a big fight. That’s right, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre rides again, and this time he aims to defend his belt in his eleventh consecutive title fight.

Your hosts get into the techniques that make GSP’s relatively simple game so effective, even at the top of one of the toughest divisions in MMA. We also discuss the chances of challenger Johny Hendricks, but our hopes aren’t high for the bearded one.

    You might wanna make the amazon click-through link to open up in a new window. Less annoying when you actually still are listening to the podcast. ;)

    When you guys were talking about frustrating the opponent with the jab to get them to do something out of that frustration otherwise they’ll just keep getting picked apart by the jab, it reminded me specifically of the Rory Macdonald vs Jake Ellenberger fight. Rory was trying to get Jake to do something dumb, but Jake did nothing, at all.

    Excellent podcast, and I know you may have been generalizing, but the Anderson comment seemed too much like conjecture and selective memory. We have no idea what he actually was thinking against Weidman, and he has fought plenty of (in fact most of his) fights without taunting, or without relying only on his countering ability. Dan Henderson comes to mind, where even though that was a perfect opponent to do it against, was mostly attacking and not waiting, nor taunting.
    You are making it sound like he doesn’t know how to fight when he is not countering and that is simply untrue. Yes, he has started to rely on it more in the latter parts of his career (probably just because he could), and had a couple of iffy fights, but that’s not really the same thing as not having other options available.

      I didn’t mean to say that he doesn’t know how to fight without taunting. I meant to say that he doesn’t know how to implement his game against opponents who don’t charge forward without fighting. Dan, Vitor, etc. didn’t need to be drawn forward with taunts–they were happy to charge Anderson of their own volition.

      Thanks for the comment, Dude!
