GSP Enlists The Help Of Brazilian Champion Gustavo Ximu

Popular Brazilian fighter, Gustavo Ximu, will support Georges St. Pierre for his bout against Jon Fitch. The Canadian champion was in Brazil recently at Gracie Barra improving his Jiu Jitsu and some other techniques.

“I’ll take a trip on July 13 or 14 to meet St. Pierre and help him for the fight in August against Fitch. There is a rumor that Jorge “Macaco” Patino would be my next opponent but nothing is still certain. So I’m going to take a rest next week and try something outside Brazil besides to train Georges. But I will always fight in Rio de Janeiro-Niterói because here I’m home,” said the Brazilian fighter.

During the training in Brazil Ximu and “Rush” became good friends: “He came to Brazil to train Jiu Jitsu but he had to train a bit of Boxing, Muay Thai and Submission. He needed some sparrings and I was available. Our friendship is growing. He phoned me before my latest fight with Alfonso Garate at The Glory – event produced by Carlão Barreto in Rio de Janeiro, Jul 05th.”
