Georges St-Pierre Praises New Training Partner Jake Shields
By FCF Staff
Georges St-Pierre is preparing to battle Michael Bisping at UFC 217 on November 4th, and he’s enlisted the services of a former foe to help him get ready for the challenge.
Recently St-Pierre appeared on “The MMA Hour” in advance of his title fight with Bisping. During the segment, the former welterweight champ revealed he’s been training with former UFC title contender, Jake Shields (quote via MMA Fighting):
“Jake Shields is amazing,” St-Pierre said. “We’ve been training together probably for a bit now, and we can both learn from each other, both grow together training with each other, and it is an honor to be able to train with him. He’s given me a lot, a lot of help, and he’s an amazing fighter. He has incredible tools. The pressure he puts (on people) on the ground is just unbearable. He’s very, very good and very specialized at what he does.”
GSP faced Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto, Canada, back in 2011, and won via unanimous decision.
