UFC 118 – Kenny Florian planning to out-wrestle Gray Maynard after working with St. Pierre

August 28, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC lightweight contender, Kenny Florian has revealed he plans to out-wrestle Gray Maynard tonight at UFC 118 in Boston, Massachusetts after working diligently alongside Georges St. Pierre over the past few months.

Speaking via MMAMania.com, Florian said:

“Yeah, for sure. Chael is a phenomenal wrestler, as is Gray. Anderson certainly doesn’t have the experience in wrestling like Chael, as I don’t compared with Gray. But I think I have a lot of rest training partners that have helped me improve in that. I’ve been working on my wrestling and drilling very hard now for a couple years. I know I have the best sparring partner in the world to prepare for Gray, Georges St. Pierre. There’s no way Gray is gong to be stronger than GSP.”

“There’s no way he’s gonna be a better wrestler than Georges. He’s not gonna be faster. He’s not gonna be bigger. Those are all things I know I’m prepared for. Training with Georges has given me a lot of confidence going into this fight. Hopefully I can show my wrestling has improved tremendously. I’m honestly going out there with the expectation to out-wrestle Gray. I don’t know if that’s gonna happen, but my goal is to out-wrestle him.”

Florian could be attempting to become the “Georges St. Pierre of the lightweight division”, a student of the game with stellar stand-up skills and the ability to take the fight to the ground whenever he deems necessary. Stay tuned to MMABay all day for further build-up and reaction from Boston as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
