Default GSP gets better by slacking



Quote:
I've taken a near 18 month break from WoW, but I'll admit; unlike GSP and his martial arts skills I haven't improved in any area. In fact, I've got worse in just about every area. PVP? My warlock doesn't even know where to begin. It's like Ebay banning the sale of potions, spells and curses. A warlock without his spells and curses is like a declawed kitten, and all he has to fall back on is his potion making. You take away a warlock's right to sell his potions on Ebay and it's like a fighter not being able to earn pocket money through seminars, GSP.

Why did Ebay ban the sale of spell, potions and curses?

GSP does not have the problems of a financially shaky dark-magic practitioner, he's been able to keep busy in a few key areas of his martial arts catalog and some of his coaches feel he's even improved in some areas. Mostly anti-smoking spokesperson Renzo Grazie. Check it out:

In sparring and fighting you don't know what is going to happen, how your opponent is going to move. You just know he's trying to hit you and that you're trying to hit him."

"I'll show him a move while we're sparring. He'll see it, try to shut it down and then he's learned it and he'll start being more creative with the same move. ‘Coach, could I use that move like this and like this in there? And could I disguise it like this and put it there at the same time?'

"If you're thinking about an injury, you wouldn't be so creative. To me, I didn't see nothing much different. He's the same old Georges. He's still creative, still trying things out. There was no, ‘I can't try that because of,' he just carried on."

Everywhere he goes, at all times, he's studying and doing whatever training he can."

That almost sounds like a political speech one would give to tout the "strengths" of them being elected. rofl

I'll wait to see him fight.

He does remind me of a smiling politician in that picture.

I've already got the hotel room booked for Nov 17th in Montreal for this one! Refundable of course, since I can't trust the UFC or Georges' knee to stick with the plan!

I'll second that! I can live with Georges winning, but the other one, just thinking about the consequences for us if that happens is scary!
