GSP: Carmont doesn't know how good he is


Most fans believe Francis Carmont is in Brazil this week to be a highlight win for 'Jacare' de Douza, however Georges St-Pierre is confident that Carmont will win and might be the best middleweight in the division:

“Francis is very good,” Georges St-Pierre said. “Francis is so good, he doesn’t know how good he is. He’s a lot better than he knows. He has a lot of potential. He’s well-rounded and an incredibly fast learner.

“When he first arrived in Canada, he was a kickboxer. But now he’s become a very good wrestler. He’s very good at adapting.”

“‘Jacare’ is one of the best in the world,” St-Pierre said. “He’s not only good in jiu-jitsu, but he’s good standing up. [Carmont] has got to use his reach and not be afraid of his ground game. If he sees a chance for a takedown, he’s got to go for it.

“Francis is one of the strongest guys I’ve met in my life. His grip is incredibly strong. When you don’t know him, it really surprises you. He needs to fight his fight and not over-respect [Souza's] jiu-jitsu.”

Completely agree. Anything less than complete domination from Jacare tonight and Carmont haters look like the complete idiots that they are.
