GSP to train with Freddie Roach

source: mmamania.com
 

UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre broke the news that he will be spending some quality time with world renowned boxing trainer Freddie Roach in the very near future.

"Rush" told Jim Rome on his nationally syndicated radio show that he will be flying to California today to begin training at Roach's Wildcard Gym in Hollywood.

This will certainly not be the first time Roach has helped MMA fighters fine tune their "sweet science" repertoir. Anderson Silva, Andrei Arlovski, Gegard Mousasi, and Dan Hardy have all trained under his watchful eye in the past.

Ditto. Well done Toby. Also guessing you could grow your hair out a touch longer and be Ric Flair for Halloween.

Why bother? we all know he is a blanket... Scared to go and fight at 185.. Content to lay on people... Matt Serra layed him out... BJ made his face look like ground beef...

Well, I know most fighters train with a boxing coach in one form or another... I was asking more like- why whenever a big name MMA fighter decides to go train with a big name boxing trainer, it's always Roach?

I doubt GSP is going to become a worse fighter by doing some boxing training.and I'm sure he is aware of what's going on with AA, BJ, etc. and none of that will have any bearing whatsoever.in that short time he will probably become a bettter boxer and who knows, he may have people trying to take him down soon enough....which will make him even more dominant.

Technically, Trevor Whitman was/is a boxing coach. You don't think of him the same as Freddie Roach because he's known for working with MMA guys, but I knew of him as a boxing coach first.And I believe Miguel Torres hit mitts with Manny Steward a week or two ago?
