I'll take Greg Jackson's but it's really close.
I just think those guy are mentally prepared and come up with some of the best game-plans.
In AKA, you have some really good well-rounded fighters with great conditioning and amazing wrestling.

He never trained full-time at Jackson's. He never spent more than 10% of his training camp in New Mexico. For his more recent fights, your memory is correct that Greg would fly to Montreal.

He still held himself out as a Jackson fighter for the Fitch and Kos fights. He was on the cover of Greg Jackson's book on ground fighting. He was awarded a black belt in Greg's fighting system. Greg was the lead corner man for the Fitch and Kos fights and Georges represented that he was a Jackson fighter in interviews, on Countdown/Primetime shows and on his banner he hung in the octagon.

Two of his main training partners back then were Rashad Evans and Nate Marquardt. He also trained with Jon Jones and other Jackson fighters in New Mexico, Colorado and in Montreal.

So, I'm not sure why anyone would say he wasn't a Jackson fighter for the Fitch and Kos fights.

It does not mean that he did not also train 10% of the time in New York at Renzo's and the Wat or 80% of the time in Montreal at Tristar and a host of other gyms, or work with dozens of the world's best trainers at their gyms across the globe.


GSP would go just about anywhere and everywhere if he thought it would help him, but I believe Tristar was home.

A lot of people are fucking idiots who regurgitate everything that comes out of Dana's mouth. GSP did all of his training at Tristar and only worked with Jackson for a few days right before his fights.

Tristar also has a much higher percentage of boring, gameplan oriented fighters than Jackson does, but nobody says shit about Zahabi because Dana hasn't attacked him in the media.
