Jon Jones otherwise known as Jon ‘Bones’ Jones is a phenomenal competitor in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). The American Mixed Martial Artist pound for pound is certainly on a par with the best –  Anderson Silva and Georges St Pierre. He is due to fight Chael Sonnen in a couple of weeks and although it’s hard to see anyone beating him at the moment, Chael has proved he can compete with the best.

Take a look at the video below and you’ll see for yourself, he’s an awesome fighter. He has that something different, stand out from the crowd style. A fantastic unorthodox Striker with excellent wrestling skills.

Jon Jones is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion (205 pound limit) and looks like he may stick around for a while.

Anderson Silva – A hard upbringing in Brazil, the son of a poverty stricken family spending much of his early years with his Uncle/ Aunt came into the UFC in 2006 and completely rocked it, taking on every opponent that was put in front of him. He has been unstoppable, the longest reigning champion in the UFC, ranked the Number 1 Middleweight in the World and another contender for the best pound for pound fighter in the world. Trash talking Chael Sonnen came along and rocked his world, the footage below is a “Must-See”.

Anderson Silva – A professional boxer and Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Capoeira. He is a natural southpaw, a very elusive and unconventional fighter, you need to see Anderson Silva in action. Take a look at his video below and see for yourself.

He’s another gem, a gentleman which seems to be a rare quality amongst the top performing fighters of the UFC who seem to be more intent on bringing their opponents down with trash talking antics.

What a corker, to be able to pull it out of the bag at such a later stage in the fight, now doesn’t that show the character of the man – WOW

The Way of The Fight

Georges St. Pierre

Georges St. Pierre – The Way of the Fight

If you have watched any Mixed Martial Arts – UFC in particular you would no doubt have heard of George St. Pierre – Arguably The Best Pound for Pound Fighter in the UFC.

He has fantastic Stand-Up skills, he’s very skill-ful on the ground and at 170 pounds is very strong, too strong for most opponents in his category. On top of being the best, he is so very humble, a complete gentleman, it’s refreshing to see this in a person who is at the very top of their sport, especially in the fight game.

Recently, Georges St. Pierre otherwise known as GSP has released a Book – “The Way of The Fight”. This is an absolute must for any Martial Arts Enthusiast. There is something to learn for everyone here.

Grab a Copy For Yourself Here:

The reigning welterweight champion and the world’s most popular UFC fighter, Georges Rush St. Pierre seemed untouchable, until injury derailed him and jeopardized his title and his career. Determined to make his comeback, he embarked on a careful regimen of physical therapy. He also used this healing period to assess his life, where he’s been, what he’s achieved, where he wants to go, and lessons that helped shape who he is. In GSP, the championship fighter invites fans into the circle of his life, sharing his most closely guarded memories.

He talks about his childhood and the torture he endured at the hands of older schoolmates, abuse that led him to martial arts and a black belt at age 12.

He introduces us to a young GSP hauling garbage as he trained to become a fighter, doggedly suffering through loss until he tasted victory. St. Pierre reflects success, how he stays grounded and composed, and on failure, how he learned humility and ltenacity. He shares his thirst for knowledge and teaching others, and speaks out passionately for bullied youths.

Throughout, he makes clear the one simple truth has always guided him: never stop reaching for your goals. An intimate, gritty look at a fighter’s journey, told through inspiring biographical vignettes, GSP is a moving account of commitment and power, achievement and pain, dedication and conviction fomr one of the world’s greatest champions.
