UFC 79: Georges St-Pierre Demonstrates His Training for Matt Hughes

The mainstream sports media still, for the most part, dismisses mixed martial arts as somehow less than a legitimate sport. I think one reason for that is that people don't understand what phenomenal athletes the guys in UFC are. To get a taste of just what kind of training a UFC champion endures, check out Georges St.-Pierre demonstrating his training regimen:

St.-Pierre is every bit as dedicated to his craft as athletes in other sports are. Furthermore, the weight classes in sports like mixed martial arts and boxing typically demand those athletes to actually be better conditioned, all things considered, than athletes in other sports.

St.-Pierre will take on Matt Hughes for the UFC welterweight championship tonight at UFC 79. We'll be live blogging UFC 79 here at FanHouse.
