"Georges is good for a reason. He has the best people around him. Of course, it's his work ethic (too). I've always had a very good work ethic. I look at Georges and how hard he trains, it's amazing to me... having the opportunity to work with Georges himself every single day that I'm in Montreal, he's such a huge help and gives me so much confidence when we're training. I've learned so much from Georges, I've learned so much from all the guys up there."

"Firas has been an amazing addition to the team. He's a guy who I believe is the smartest coach in mixed martial arts today. And I think everybody's at least a couple of years behind what Firas is doing with his team... I really feel like I have the best minds in the world in my corner and I'm looking forward to making them proud on Dec. 12"

"My body definitely has changed. I definitely am at my biggest and at my leanest. I feel very, very strong. I feel I'm at my quickest, and I'm in tremendous shape right now...We've really gone back to the basics. I feel like it's been a total rebirth, a total upgrade of what I've been doing."

"I think I learned a lot from that B.J. Penn fight. God willing, I'll have a third crack at the belt. B.J. didn't get it the first two times, he got it the third. Hopefully I can do the same... I believe people are going to see even more of a change in the way that I look and fight from here on out. It's going to be more of a change than what it was after the Sherk fight."

--Kenny Florian (13-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC), who severed his ties with long time Muay Thai coach Mark DellaGrotte, now splits his time training at the Florian Martial Arts Center and at the Montreal based TriStar gym with guys like Firas Zahabi, Jon Chaimberg, Peter Welch and Georges St. Pierre. He says that when he fight Clay Guida (25-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) this Saturday, we will see a new and improved Kenny Florian:
