Usually when it comes to armbars, it’s tap or snap. So when GSP caught Dan Hardy in a fully extended armbar but couldn’t get either, it made some people wonder if maybe Georges is too damn polite to break an opponent’s arm like that.
When asked if he’d applied the holds at full bore, St. Pierre replied, “I wanted to go 100 percent. I trained to break. I want to finish him, you know what I mean?”
St. Pierre said he reviewed “the technical mistake” he’d made with the kimura attempt in the locker room after the bout with jiu-jitsu coach John Danaher.
“Now it’s fresh in my head,” said St. Pierre. “I know what I did wrong. It won’t happen next time.”
The popular French Canadian also applauded the 29-year-old Hardy’s fortitude.
“At one point, I was like, ‘Man, I think I broke his shoulder,’ and then one time I thought I’d broke his arm when I had the juju-gatame. I heard like ‘click, click.’ It was completely extended,” he said.
Hardy is lucky he drank his milk leading up to this one. I was expecting to see some disturbing shit once both those subs were locked in.
