    Date is october the 15th

    English is not my main language so im not gonna translate everything (most of the stuff anyway is general questions like how do you feel / training)

    Quick Resume :

    Right now hes in the most dangerous/intense part of his training camp (peak)

    His training camp is like a 3 steps pyramid (or 3 phases), the bottom is the physical training (conditionning of the athlete), the middle is the technique of moves (kicks,jabs,wrestling...) and the top is tactic for the next opponent

    Hes currently doing the VADA testing (3 tests done so far)......hes also afraid of needles lol :p

    Hes disapointed in the lack of support to help him clean up the sport, its about having a fair fight for everybody

    Hes only focusing on Hendricks right now and not on retirement plans (reference from zahabi comments) (said it with a smile....)

    Interesting part here, someone told him Hendricks wanted to land in vegas 3 weeks before the fight to train and feel the fight night octagon. So GSP built a top-notch octogon right at his training camp with the support of hayabusa, under armor, affliction and even the ufc gave him an official mat (floor). Interviewer kind of pointed out that someone who wants to retire wouldnt do all that just to neutralize the fact that hendricks could get an advantage by being early in vegas

    "Interviewer kind of pointed out that someone who wants to retire wouldnt do all that just to neutralize the fact that hendricks could get an advantage by being early in vegas"

    Funny argument.
    Almost like saying that, since retirement could be coming, he should be careless?
    Why not do everything to win a fight?

    Funny how evry time he fought someone, his opponent played the PED card and now that he's getting tested and he's trying to clean the sport, Dana betray him and not a single freakin fighter made a statement to support his effort or blame Hendricks for his lying spree...

    If i was him, id cancel the fight and retire...

    UFC should sign him to a 10 fight deal like Spider. He will feel welcome. I agree fair fights. He probably saw Hendricks KO many guys and say no way that guy has that much pop. Should be a hell of a battle in and out of the cage.

    A poem to a true warrior and GOAT GSP:

    Real heroes in battles
    Are often unsung
    Those that bravely defend
    Yet refuse recognition when done.

    GSP is one of those
    A hero, no doubt
    Suffering all kinds of wars
    But giving others’ praise was his shout.

    The kind of warrior
    Who rare did complain
    When the battles were fierce
    He would let his wrestling alone sustain.

    A contradiction, of sorts
    Though champion for sure:
    Brave enough to conquer
    Yet kind enough, our hearts he did stir.

    Touching lives everywhere
    With his Canadian ways
    And no matter the storm
    To the fans he would yield his highest praise.

    When life seemed so unfair
    And dealt a hard blow
    GSP could only conclude
    Some things, only in in the Octagon will we know.

    Faced with hardships untold
    In wars few could bear
    He plunged through with such grace
    Blessing others, yet so unaware.

    Now, his battle’s nearly over
    His race is nearly run
    My war-weary hero
    Has at last through courage the victory won.

    We will miss him so dearly
    But my heart is relieved
    Knowing one day he'll be
    worshipped for eternity.

    Though in battle he refused
    Any kind of praise
    I feel very certain
    When all is over, undisputed he will reign.

    Rewards, accolades
    He passed, that’s for sure
    But to me he’ll always be
    My wonderful, gentle warrior.

    OMG he looks like shit!

    Someone pounded on his face! He must be doing some hard sparring sessions...

    Maybe he invited that drunken muy thai french dude from TUF to his camp.

    :p

    Huge GSP fan, but training in an Octagon isn't the advantage you get by going to Vegas. The advantage you get by training for three weeks in Vegas is adapting to that climate.

    So if he just trains in air condition he should be set now with his new octagon.
