I have a guy from Paris, France, he's a champion in Muay Thai, he helps me before every fight, and nobody knows who he is cause he's not in my corner
Kongo? I remember reading somewhere that he said he might bright something new to his arsenal against Kos. I wonder if it's Muay Thai? His striking (combined boxing and karate) is already excellent, I can only imagine him developing a Mauy Thai plum.

GSP's got pretty solid MT actually, he went to Thailand before the Alves fight and spent some time with a proper teacher. Kru Phil Nurse is also an excellent MT coach.

I'd be interested to see who this dude from Paris is. Could be Victor (although he's not from france) Vargotsky who's trained GSP before, he's one scary MOFO.

I'd love it if more MMA fighters trained with top level kick-boxers like Petrosyan or Buakaw.

It will probably be JLB.
