    Firas Zahabi-GSP's Legs Are 'More Powerful Than Ever, It's Scary'

    Firas Zahabi, the head trainer at TriStar gym, joined MMA Fight Corner and spoke about how strong and ready UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre is for his upcoming fight vs current interim welterweight champ, Carlos Condit, at UFC 154 on November 17th in Montreal, Canada.
    "Georges is looking phenomenal. Actually just finished practice with him not too long ago, he's looking in incredible shape. We've got him a new track coach, a couple new track coaches, this training camp. The guys have done incredible work. They've shaved off more than 10 seconds on his 400 meters. I'm extremely impressed with what these guys can do. He's in the best physical shape, his legs are more powerful than ever, it's scary."

    Since GSP hasn't fought since April 2011, questions about his strength and ability to land his signature double leg takedown have rose to the surface. Many wonder if he'll be the same man we saw before his ACL surgery.

    "He's taking everyone down in practice at will. So, I'm not worried about that. So, that's not even a topic of discussion right now," Zahabi said. "I think the only thing is when you've been away for so long, you kind of lose a beat. But, Georges has been fighting since he's young…when you've been fighting from such a young age it's just like riding a bike.

    "Of course we won't know for sure until the fight and that's just the way the it is. If there's anyone who can comeback from an ACL injury and win a world title fight, it's GSP."

    One of Condit's coaches, Mike Winklejohn made headlines after an appearance on Sherdog radio where he said that they know what St. Pierre will try to do because of their familiarity with from when he trained with their camp. Additionally, Winklejohn said they would try to hurt GSP. Zahabi responded explaining that's their plan too.

    "I think many guys have come up with that game plan many times and everybody seems to think that's Georges weakness. I don't know, we'll have to wait and see. Of course if you hurt a fighter, it's good. It's always good. Hurting a fighter is always good. Georges is going to be trying to hurt Condit, Condit is going to be trying to hurt Georges and that's the way the game is played. Nine times out of ten, the guy who hurts his opponent usually wins. It's the game plan on both sides let's just say."

    Georges St-Pierre Expects Carlos Condit to Come Out Firing

    “I’ve been out for a long time, so he’s gonna start fast,” St-Pierre predicted during Monday’s Training Camp on FUEL TV. “I’m ready for that. I’ve been training for a quick start, straight from the beginning – BANG – really be ready to go straight from the beginning.

    “Not really studying your opponent, but be ready when I hear the [bell] ring. Be ready to go right from the beginning, that’s what I believe he’s going to try to do, and I’m ready for that.”

    As far as his long awaited return is concerned, St-Pierre intends to make up for lost time.

    “It’s gonna be a good fashioned victory,” he proclaimed. “I’m gonna be more [opportunistic]. I’m happy to be here. I’m not burned out. I’m gonna step into the Octagon not in the way, ‘Oh, I wanna get out of there,’ I want to enjoy every second of it. I want to enjoy the experience.”

    St-Pierre and Condit were scheduled to collide at UFC 137 until St-Pierre was forced to bow out with a knee injury, which he had surgically repaired in December. “Rush’s” extended absence forced the UFC to manufacture a 170-pound belt.

    See plain and simple, This guy is just classy and respectable I really dont know why he never gets the respect of other top coaches in the game today.

    Ive never once heard Zahabi talk shit period..All the bloated fuck Cesar Gracie does is talk shit and he's nominated for coach of the year.?
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Perhaps he would if GSP fought more than 4 times in 3 years.

    His legs in that picture H0SS posted recently definitely looked scary. It looked as if he never really stopped training.

    I cannot wait to see what he does to Condit when he gets back.

    I'm ready to see GSP double leg Condit from one end of the cage all the way to the other. Call it the superman double leg.

    GSP has been training in a hyperbolic time chamber for this fight.

    Condit better have some damn senzu beans then.
    "To be truly walking on the warrior's path, we have to bring our minds back to the time when we were not ashamed of our dreams; when reality had not yet frustrated our ambitions; when our desire was still too strong to be repressed, and our spirit refused to surrender in resignation; when we were not yet doctors, businessmen, or lawyers, but still wanted to be heroes, leaders, bodhisattvas. The first step on the way to being warriors is to get back in touch with our dreams."

    I'm sure Gracie is not the same with the people he trains as he is with the media. I highly doubt he "talks shit" all day to people when they are training at his academy. The coach of the year award is bullshit, though. Either your a good coach or your not a good coach, not sure how you can say 1 coach is better than every other coach though with the limited information the public has.

    But every person that trains with Cesar has great things to say about him. Doesn't seem like it's always the same with Greg Jackson. I've always thought Zahabi was a good coach, though.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    Wow those legs are fkn huge compared to what they were before. Doesn't mean that Bones Jones style knee kicks won't mess him up but in terms of size they are much bigger than before.
