GSP to help train Florian for title fight vs. Penn

Georges St-Pierre will help Kenny Florian prepare for his UFC lightweight title shot against champion BJ Penn.

"The thing that I can do to piss [Penn] off even more is to help Kenny Florian to kick his ass," St-Pierre said in an interview with Canada's Rogers Sportsnet. "And that's what I'm going to do. Kenny Florian is coming in April and I will help him out as much as I can to beat [Penn] up."

MMAFighting.com has learned that Florian will be traveling to Montreal to train with the Tri-Star Gym, which was prominently featured in the "UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs. Penn" mini-series on Spike TV.

No date has been set for the Penn vs. Florian fight and won't likely happen anytime soon. Penn said in an interview with Raw Vegas earlier this week that he hasn't started his training for the Florian fight and when he does, would train three months for the fight.
