(Can one gym even hold that much badass? Magic eightball says, ‘Outlook not so good.’)
As UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre puts on more weight and continues to dominate every 170-pounder in his path, finding sparring partners who can push him is apparently becoming more of a problem. In a talk with Heavy.com, Tristar Gym owner and longtime GSP trainer Firas Zahabi says that he can’t even put him up against other fighters his own size in training anymore, adding "It’s getting scary. Georges is getting better and better, believe it or not."
That’s why he’s looking to add a new face to St. Pierre’s training camp: Strikeforce light heavyweight champ Gegard Mousasi.
Since he mentioned it no less than twice in the interview, we’re assuming Zahabi is serious about getting "The Last Gypsy" in the gym with GSP. If it happens, we can only hope that the cameras are there to capture it for "UFC Primetime." Though who are we kidding, St. Pierre-Mousasi is a sparring session worthy of pay-per-view. Maybe they should just film it and keep it in the can. That way, if GSP runs through Dan Hardy too quickly, they can go ahead and add it to the broadcast to make the fans feel like they got their money’s worth. As an added bonus, it seems like the kind of thing that would really, really piss off M-1 Global.
