Georges St.Pierre is currently in Montreal at the Tri-Star Gym training for his upcoming title fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 137, and it turns out he’s enlisted the help of a former foe to help him out.
“Guess who landed in town yesterday night to come train with me?for sure he’ll bring the much needed intensity to get prepared…Dan Hardy!!!” GSP wrote on his Twitter page earlier today.
Of course St.Pierre and Hardy have fought before, with the champion dominating the Brit with his wrestling over five rounds at UFC 111.
Hardy has struggled to make an impact since then and is now on a four fight losing streak. One of those losses came against Condit, GSP’s next opponent and so that may be one of the reasons that he’s been brought on-board.
Hardy’s disappointing form aside this seems like a smart move for both parties as St.Pierre can benefit from ‘The Outlaw’s’ striking which isn’t too dissimilar to Condit’s, while Hardy can undoubtedly learn a lot from his former rival when it comes to wrestling.
