GSP On Fighting and the Martial Arts

Nice little interview with UFC welterweight and Gracie Barra black belt, Georges St. Pierre.

Georges St. Pierre Studies Josh Koscheck for UFC 124
People think my takedowns come from wrestling but I’ve done karate for so long. You can use karate as a set up for punching people, to cover distance, or to put someone down. I use it to cover the distance and put people down, and I’m very good at it. A guy like Lyoto Machida does it too. So it’s more than just wrestling, it’s about fighting itself.
