Georges St-Pierre – GSP – Skill Breakdown / Film Study / Highlights

Georges St Pierres Skills Breakdown

With rumours running rampant, and semi-confirmations from people close to arguably the greatest pound for pound martial artist to ever grace the Octagon. It seemed fitting, either way, to do a skill assessment and/breakdown of the French-Canadian superstar Georges St-Pierre. From his early Kyokushin roots, Renzo Gracie/John Danaher Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling dominance.

To his refined striking courtesy of Ajarn Phil Nurse, Freddie Roach. And finally the master chef who mixes all of the prior ingredients in the form of the best coach in Mixed Martial Arts in Firas Zahabi.

The objective is to cover everything from his distance dominance. Via long-lancing jabs and brilliantly timed double leg takedowns. To some of the more intricate and advanced parts of his game such as his guard passing, takedown defence, and perseverance.

While there is a potential argument about the best ever. There is no question GSP was the best welterweight of all time. And that he revolutionized MMA in a way very few have by being a true and complete MIXED martial artist.

GSP the UFC History

Georges St-Pierre (born May 19, 1981), often referred to as GSP, is a Canadian semi-retired mixed martial artist (MMA). And a three-time former Welterweight Champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Having won the title twice in 2006 and 2008, as well as an Interim title in 2007. Frequently cited as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. St-Pierre was ranked as the #1 welterweight in the world for several years by Sherdog and numerous other publications.

In 2008, 2009, and 2010 he was named the Canadian Athlete of the Year by Rogers SportsnetFight.  The matrix lists him as the top MMA Welterweight of all time and most accomplished fighter in MMA history. On December 13, 2013, holding the record for most wins in title bouts. And the second longest combined title streak in UFC history (2,204 days). St-Pierre vacated the title and decided to take some time off from the sport, though he left the door open for a return. { . }

One loss in almost 10 years, finished on a 7-year win streak, all in a championship or #1 contender fights. 2 losses in his career, 25 wins over at least 3 Hall of Fame fighters, maybe more. Jon Jones doesn’t have the blemishes but doesn’t have the same resume either.
