    I like how people think Geoegs is an impressive gymnast. Its quite the opposite.

    Just like when he did a backflip celebration after his fight.. In this clip he completely botches the landing. Why post a video of yourself doing this? What kind of good gymnast cant easily land a clean back tuck.


    Not as bad as the Maulers flop though. Damn mma is such a cringy sport to be a fan of

    I think the point is that he ISNT a gymnast but is dabbling.

    thing is, any half cordinated in shape person can do what he did in the video easily. As like a 4 year old child I was doing flips on trampoline, bars, swings etc and it was just natural. I'm not sure how this is impressive to anyone.

    For a 37 year old non-gymnast I guess it is OK. Maybe he just likes sharing it and isn't trying to impress anyone?

    Well, there's the pre Matt Serra George and the post Matt Serra George. That's why we call him Georges.

    I get ya.. From someone who was a gymnast as a kid its just embarrasing. Not what youd expect from an athlete of his calibur whos beeb dabbling around with it for years. Hes comes off clumsy on most everything ive seen him do

    while gsp is no sage northcutt when it comes to flipping. gsp is good at what he should be good at...which is fighting...

    To be fair probably easier to pull some of this stuff off as a kid vs as a 37 year old.

    Not many people do backflips. GSP is pretty good considering..

    He’s probably a lot better at gymnastics than most gymnasts are at fighting

    True. On the other hand its more impressive than dunking a basketball, something that half of Sherdog finds extremely impressive.
