Kenny Florian is a better thumb wrestler than Georges St. Pierre, and we have a video to prove it

Much like jiu jitsu, the keys to winning a thumb wrestling match are grip strength combined with leverage. Unlike jiu iitsu, fatigue will never lead to being submitted by someone with a superior thumb. I learned this at a young age. Unfortunately, the skills I’ve acquired have served absolutely no function since elementary school; or whenever it was that I learned how to dribble a basketball between my legs and moved onto more entertaining after-school activities. I blame mediocre boxing promoters for not giving thumb wrestlers an outlet to turn pro; instead, they lost us to other sports. While UFC fighters usually don’t condition their thumbs for battle, Kenny Florian might just be the best thumb wrestler in the UFC. That statement is purely speculative, but he does hold a notable win over Georges St. Pierre, which is something no other fighter within the organization has been able to say for years. [Source]
