    This article is from 2010, but it's worth noting because GSP has high praises for the oft-bashed Gegard Mousasi amongst UFC-only fans

    Georges St. Pierre talking to SI.com about his first training session with Gegard Mousasi

    I think it also says something about Gegard when Firas Zahibi does everything in his power to try and recruit Gegard Mousasi back then. It's a case of true talent having an eye for another special talent.

    Mousasi joining Tri Star would be awesome.

    damn never new Mousasi was friends with GSP, kinda of become a fan of his after the Kyle fight and after reading this he's probably in my top 5 favourite LHW's

    Thank You for posting this, good stuff. GSP is very well-rounded, but continues to push his own development with new sparring partners, which is admirable. For his part, Mousasi could definitely learn MMA wrestling from TriStar - that is, while there are certainly many decorated amateur wrestlers in the world, GSP's team has mastered how to seamlessly incorporate wrestling and striking into one nearly unstoppable package.

    Two very technical, cool-minded fighters right there.

    seeing two top guys train together, especially the combo here, considering both their strengths, makes me even more pumped to see their next outing - wonder what GSP is talking about, what technique, standing or something else?

    I could see him going to train at Hayastan's/Glendale Fighting Club. Trained at both before and there's a strong armenian contingent there.

    this, they're both world class in different disciplines and there kind of similar personality wise, and just like you said reading shit like this makes you pumped to see the fighters compete

    Gegard has the talent most MMA fighters lacks, and he will be the LHW champion very soon

    Ok, but there is nothing to say that Tristar is currently trying to recruit Mousasi again. They trained in 2010. Had a positive experience and went their own ways. No recent developments. So... Lets not get too carried away about Mousasi joining Tristar in 2013.

    I bet he's learning all them tricks Gegard picked up from Fedor. Sneaky.

    This is mma. These guys put their lives and health on the line every time they step in the cage. They aren't wearing padding and head gear. There is no such thing as a point fighter being one of the greatest World Champions in the sport. Learn the sport a bit and try again.

    definitely - GSP's standing is already good enough for the WW's he has faced, 2 out of his last 3 fights were entirely on the feet, but to see him take that leap to the next level of breaking someone down would be nice - And obviously if the Mousasi can keep it standing that's a good thing
