Georges St. Pierre's Blogs

  • Michael Carroll Joins Press Row By: Jordan Breen





    Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by FightMetric research analyst Michael Carroll.

    With longtime welterweight ruler Georges St. Pierre stepping away from the sport and a year full of championship shake-up in MMA, there's new, dominant faces in the sport. Breen and Carroll discuss the statistical underpinnings of MMA's top champions and what they have in common as divisional rulers. The two investigate the likes of Cain Velasquez, Demetrious Johnson, Chris Weidman and others, detailing how particular metrics reveal the sources of their dominance, or at least brilliantly reflect it.

    The duo also debate the importance of statistical efficiency for MMA fighters, the statistical anomalies of Jake Shields, which metrics might best predict championship success and which up-and-comers excel in those categories.

    Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”

  • Matt Serra Remembers Upset Win Over GSP: I Was Going for Broke Out There By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Was Serra-GSP the biggest upset in MMA history? Please tell us below. | Photo: Dave Mandel



    Matt Serra, on “Beatdown,” discussing his April 2007 upset win over Georges St. Pierre:

    “I knew … if it went bad, with the game plan we were having, it was going to be a quick night. Maybe brutal but quick. But listen, I don’t want to get tired in there. If I look to try to make it a grappling match with the guy, it would get exhausting if I just tried to put the guy down a lot. And you don’t want to be that guy jumping guard from Guam. … I knew my one title shot, it definitely wasn’t going to be boring. It was kind of thrilling. It was like a thrill in that sense because it’s like, I know I’m going for broke out here. I know it. I know I’ve either got to stop him or I can get stopped. You’ve got to put yourself out there.”

  • GSP Book Co-Author: Champ Has Been Discussing Retirement for Years By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Justin Kingsley, who co-authored “Way of the Fight” with Georges St. Pierre, discussing on “Rewind” whether GSP struggles with possibly retiring:

    “I don’t know if struggle is the right word, but is it something that, I’m guessing, would be part of his thought process? I think it has to be. After everything that happened, I don’t see how it can’t be. … He said give me some time to go away and think, and that has to be a part of his thinking process. He’s said it’s been part of his process, in fact, for years. He said when I go out, I’m going to go out on top. He’s been saying that for a number of years, discussing that with Firas [Zahabi], with Kristof [Midoux], with John Danaher, with all these people.”

  • Johny Hendricks’ Coach: If Georges St. Pierre Never Fights Again, Can’t Fault Him By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Steven Wright, on “Beatdown,” discussing the possibility that Georges St. Pierre may never fight again:

    “I can’t and will never fault anybody who never wants to fight again. These guys are getting hit and they are taking damage. It is a violent sport. If anybody for whatever reason says, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore,’ I respect that decision.”

  • Firas Zahabi: If GSP Fights Johny Hendricks Again, Freddie Roach Could Be in Corner By: Sherdog.com Staff




    Trainer Firas Zahabi, on “Beatdown,” discussing why Freddie Roach should be in the corner if Georges St. Pierre fights Johny Hendricks again:

    “I’m an MMA coach. Definitely he needs an MMA coach, and then we usually have a second coach who’s a specialist. Usually we’re scheduled to have John Danaher, but he’s a grappling coach. There wasn’t a lot of grappling in this fight. It was more about the standup. I’m an expert in kickboxing, but Freddie Roach lends a lot in terms of boxing of course, without any question. Having him might make a lot of sense to give us tips on how to neutralize Johny’s boxing. I think Freddie Roach is a perfect fit to have in the corner for a guy like Hendricks because Hendricks is not really looking to do any jiu-jitsu. He’s really looking to punch. That’s his big thing. He does kick or knee a little bit, but his main thing is punching.”
