UFC 124 happened over the weekend, and Geogres St-Pierre made another convincing argument for him to be considered the strongest pound-for-pound fighter in mixed martial arts. GSP spent 25 minutes demolishing Josh Kos

Georges St. Pierre kept most of the fight up top and put on a striking clinic. GSP peppered Koscheck with jabs, strikes, knees, and kicks for about four of the five rounds. Koscheck got a brief takedown in Round 1, but the two didn’t go back to the ground until Round 4. GSP’s training with famed boxing trainer Freddie Roach obviously paid dividends because he was more fast, elusive, and accurate than in any of his past fights.
And now we can listen to everyone refer to GSP as the San Antonio Spurs of the MMA. That is to say, the guy wins, but he’s boring. Most people are hoping that St-Pierre will put on weight and fight UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva, and really, if dude has a chance to get fat for work, he should jump on it. Look how well it worked out for Russell Crowe.
