Fanhouse posted a video today of GSP from late last year talking about he’s changed and improved as a fighter since his win over Thiago Alves at UFC 111. As always, GSP has a unique take on how he approaches the sport.
As scary as an improved Georges St. Pierre is, Michael Bisping says all the pressure will be on his shoulders when he defends his title against Dan Hardy at UFC 111.
“Dan’s in a great position. All the pressure is on GSP for this fight. I’ve been friends with Dan for years and I am very happy he’s earned this chance. I know Dan’s a consumate professional and I know from the UK scene he’s come up with a great gameplan to bring the UFC welterweight title back to England. I will be up late, and cheering Dan of for sure.”
“He knows he’s the underdog, but every welterweight on the planet is the underdog against GSP right now. Dan is a very good striker, he has that edge over GSP, but Dan’s best weapon is his belief in himself. He won’t beat himself before the fight starts and even if GSP starts taking him down and things don’t go to plan, Dan won’t crumble psychologically.”
“He’s not going to out-grapple GSP, we all know that. But he’s got an advantage on the feet and his a very hurtful puncher. GSP’s real talent is his MMA, mixing it up, going from wrestling to BJJ, to striking and back again as fast as anyone in the sport. GSP isn’t afraid to stand with anyone. I don’t agree with this theory he won’t stand with Dan, but of course it is in his interests to take this to the ground where he has the advantage.”
