This question was asked in a radio interview of Condit posted here not long ago.

Condit basically said he and GSP have been in the same gym at the same time. But they've never trained or sparred together.

They have been discussed as training partners but people tend to exaggerate the amount of training GSP does with Jackson/at ABQ. GSP's primary gym and trainer are TriStar and Firhaz Zahabi, not Jackson/ABQ, although he obviously does train there sometimes and Jackson is his primary cornerman/strategist.

I believe Jackson said he won't corner either for this fight to avoid what could be percieved as an unfair advantage.

He needs to be cornering the guy who is there all the time. I wouldn't train at that gym if my regular corner didn't do the fight just because some guy trained there a few times a while ago.
