I’m willing to bet the shirt off my back and the shoes off my feet that Renzo Gracie knows more about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu than anyone who reads this article. If I’m wrong, that’ll leave me walking home barefoot from Starbucks showing off my “situation”. If I had to accurately describe my abs right now, it would probably be more like an “incident”. I coincidentally had gym, tanning and laundry on the agenda for today, but I’m lazy, the sun won’t come out and I’m out of quarters. It’s times like these that GSP is kicking back with a bowl of poutine and watching videos of himself annihilating his opponents. Despite all of that, Renzo Gracie is a bit frustrated with GSP’s last performance:
“Jiu-jitsu is a very, very important part of this style of fighting. If it wasn’t, I don’t think I’d have Georges St-Pierre for 15 days at my school now training. After he finished his fight (with Hardy), the first thing he did was to grab us, to go in the back, and says ‘show me what I did wrong, why I didn’t finish him?”.
“It was a very simple question. When he was doing the Kimura lock, instead of being at 12 o’clock, he should have been at 9 o’clock. Like his lower body shouldn’t have been here, that would give him the leverage to actually get the guy’s arm to break.”
“Things like that, I know next time he won’t make the mistake,”
Zeus has similar faith in me when it comes driving to D’Amores and not messing up what toppings he wanted on his side of the pizza. With each time I bring home a fresh pie, I’m the best Bauzen I can be and that makes me the GSP of pizza delivery. Shoutout to that imaginary bid of confidence from GSP. [Source]
