The Greg Jackson Protocol

Georges St Pierre vs Carlos Condit pits Greg Jackson teammate versus Greg Jackson teammate. But for some reason, we didn’t end up hearing all the wah wah betrayal knife in mah back crying we did when Rashad Evans and Jon Jones was set up. Why not?

“All the time I kept my eyes on Carlos a little bit,” said the two-time welterweight champ from Montreal. “He’s a very good fighter, and now that it’s official that I’m gonna fight him, it’s gonna be a tough fight.”

The two also have a connection due to their work with trainer Greg Jackson and his Jackson’s MMA camp in Albuquerque. St-Pierre says the two never trained together in the gym, but that Jackson is opting to sit this October fight out.

“We never did work together, but we had the same training partners,” said St-Pierre. “Greg is gonna step away and he’s not gonna coach Carlos and he’s not going to coach me. But I’m not mad at Carlos – I think it’s the opportunity of a lifetime for him and I’m grateful that he took the opportunity and gave me a fight because I need the fight too. We’re both gonna go there and the best man will win.”

It doesn’t hurt that Jackson took the time to sort out what happens when fights like this inevitably occur:

Greg Jackson: Teammate protocols are pretty clear in this situation so everybody knows what happening. I step out, the other coaches — John [Danaher], Phil [Nurse] and Firas [Zahabi] — will take care of GSP and probably [Mike] Winkeljohn and some of the other guys here will take care of Carlos. But I step out of it, so I won’t be cornering either guy. They’ll fight each other. Those are the new teammate protocols. We knew this would be coming — it will probably be coming again –but this time we are very well prepared.

Oh noes, in-camp fight! Run protocol DELPHI TANGO TANGO SIX! Quarantine coaches! Seperate sparring partners! Tape a giant line across the gym like in a bad sitcom!

    between the Rashad fiasco and now this I guess the closeness and team atmosphere of share everything we will NEVER fight each other is officially dead at Jacksons

    My understanding was that Jackson is pretty much just the “gameplan guru” for GSP anyway, while the bulk of the actual training is done by Zahabi, Nurse, and Danaher.  But GSP is all about his gameplans, so who knows how much this’ll affect him.

     I like how GSP’s team is already established and Carlos’s team consists of Winklejohn and some other dudes who’s namses I can’t remember right now. At least they’re not kicking him off the team Miletich style.

    Condit’s already got a contingency team in place with a guy who’s been training him since he was a teen.  Strange that Greg doesn’t know who it is, tho.

    I’d be willing to bet a sizable amount of money that everyone at team Jackson has touched each others cocks.

  • frickshun

    Simple solution: hang a sheet across the gym. It works in TV sitcoms.

  • iamphoenix

    Gsp and condit are gonna find out that jackson has been giving them both secret help and kick his has.

  • Letibleu

    Jackson is going to wank in secret while watching the fight.

  • Jarman

    wait, blong crisby, have you ever rolled some jits? caught someone in a triangle? an armbar? that shits inevitable. the same could be said of every MMA gym in the world. The only ones who care are self denying closet fags. everyone else just gets past it. so why don’t you come outta that closet already? must be getting stuffy in there with your brothers, dad and gramps.
