Greg Jackson not training GSP or Condit for title fight

An interesting turn of events as the removal of Nick Diaz from the main event at UFC 137 ends with Jackson’s MMA once again having team-mate vs team-mate, as both Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit are students of the acclaimed trainer.

Ariel Helwani: Greg, two of your star fighters are going to fight each other in October. What will do you?

Greg Jackson: Teammate protocols are pretty clear in this situation so everybody knows what happening. I step out, the other coaches — John [Danaher], Phil [Nurse] and Firas [Zahabi] — will take care of GSP and probably [Mike] Winkeljohn and some of the other guys here will take care of Carlos. But I step out of it, so I won’t be cornering either guy. They’ll fight each other. Those are the new teammate protocols. We knew this would be coming — it will probably be coming again –but this time we are very well prepared.

AH: Are you disappointed that they have to fight each other?

GJ: Nah, I mean, I don’t like it. They are two of my friends. Me and Georges, I mean, I love that man to death. And Carlos has been, since he came back to the gym, has been on a destruction streak. So they both have to eat, they have to make money. I really love training, working with my guys. There’s two of my favorites that I don’t get to work with this time, so that’s kind of a bummer. But I don’t care about the money; I don’t care about the fame; I don’t care about any of that stuff. They’ve got to make a living, but I can’t look across the cage at one of my guys. I just can’t do it
