    “It’s a plus for me,” St-Pierre told the French-Canadian media. “He’s a guy with a similar style to Johny Hendricks. He’s also the last person to beat him. He won by decision. It was a close fight. But he won. He has even trained with him. He can give me some tricks, tell me how he is.”

    This is a very good decision by Firas Zahabi IMO. Also it seems like Story is joining Tristar now?

    Charlie Brenneman has Story's soul. He sold it though, after 151 was cancelled to pay for his bills.

    Maia squeezed the remainder through his nose.
    I know he has the W over Johnny but I'm not sure what he has to teach him.

    i wouldn't necessarily call his performance against Hendricks impressive

    but GSP can probably still benefit from training with him

    He knows Johnny and he is at the very least a great sparring partner to mimic Hendrick

    sounds like a cheap way to train for the fight. Getting insider info from a guy you never trained with before seems very desperate. That's like Weidman bringing in Ryo Chonnan to his camp to prepare for Anderson. its ridiculous and desperate.

    Story is underrated around here and got robbed against Pyle.

    Absolutely!!! I said that in a thread and I got flamed hard. I left with about a minute left in the third round to make it to my buddies in time for the PPV and I was amazed when he said Pyle got the nod.

    Come on guys, be nice to the little fella. He thinks Penn is the GOAT, I don't think he has many friends. Just let him have this one

    Story is actually a high level fighter. He is aggressive, strong, athletic, great MMA wrestling, hits hard and has an iron jaw. He has just had some bad luck recently.

    bringing in a complete stranger to train for a guy he fought 5 years ago is completely desperate imo, especially when you are considered p4p best fighter on earth. Like I said, did Weidman bring in takase or Ryo before his title fight? its ridiculous.

    I think Story is the better fighter, but he gassed hard, and didn't do anything but lay on Pyle in rounds 2 and 3 while Mike attempted subs and outstruck him off his back. I gave Story a 10-8 first round and thought it was a draw though.
