Mike Sloan points out that Greg Jackson’s crew hasn’t been doing so well lately:
Virtually all of trainer Greg Jackson’s men have been beaten lately: Jardine, Diego Sanchez (Pictures), Joey Villasenor (Pictures), and Nathan Marquardt (Pictures) — not to mention Tito taking it to Rashad Evans (Pictures).
I thought I was the only guy who’s been noticing Greg Jackson’s camp getting slaughtered. It seems like every fighter who proclaims they’re “going down to Albuquerque” ends up on the wrong end of a mean beating. So you can imagine my discomfort at reading Georges St Pierre is now training with these losers:
MMANews.com: Who are you training with right now in preparation for Koscheck?
Georges St. Pierre: I’m training with different guys. I do a lot of specific training – boxing, wrestling, but for MMA I’m training with Greg Jackson’s camp with Rashad Evans, Nathan Marquardt, Patrick Cote, all the guys I know in Quebec.
MMANews.com: Now you’re in Quebec now training with those guys, when will you be going down to New Mexico to work with the Jackson camp?
Georges St. Pierre: I go there in like three or four weeks. Sometimes guys there will come back up with me to help.
I feel bad for Georges … he’s in something of a transitional period in his training right now. Because of the beef with Matt Serra, he’s lost his BJJ teacher Renzo Gracie. There’s also bad blood now with GSP and his manager, and who knows what’s up with the rest of his old training crew. It’s like everyone’s graduated from high school and drifted apart … it’s so sad. But I dunno if the answer is Greg Jackson’s camp. And I pray to god GSP doesn’t let Greg Jackson corner him. Greg is the stupid moron who told Rashad Evans he was winning all three rounds. Delusional guys like that shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a fighter during a fight, let alone cornering them.
Anyways, long story short: I don’t like this one bit.
