I wonder who worked harder, Gable or GSP?
I think it was Faber on Rogan's podcast who talked about seeing Gable training at a gym and the guy is in his 50's and just drilling double leg takedowns and screaming at himself that he wasn't doing good enough and this went on for hours.
Reminds of an MJ story where he was being followed by a crew of journalists for some big piece and they all said how he was borderline insane level of competitive. One time while they were just sitting around he went and bought crossword puzzles for all of them just to see if he could do them faster than they could.
