Renzo Gracie Talks GSP, Not Finishing Hardy, More

Renowned trainer and fighter, Renzo Gracie talks to MMAWeekly.com about GSP and his inability to finish Dan Hardy at UFC 111:

“Jiu-jitsu is a very, very important part of this style of fighting. If it wasn't, I don't think I'd have Georges St-Pierre for 15 days at my school now training, and after he finished his fight, the first thing he did was to grab us, to go in the back, and says 'show me what I did wrong, why I didn't finish him.”

“It was a very simple question. When he was doing the Kimura lock, instead of being at 12 o'clock, he should have been at 9 o'clock. Like his lower body shouldn't have been here, that would give him the leverage to actually get the guy's arm to break.”

“Things like that, I know next time he won't make the mistake.”
