Greg Jackson Will Not Take Sides in Teammate vs. Teammate battle that is GSP vs. Condit


“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.”

Greg Jackson has recently been put in another interesting situation, as two of his welterweight fighters have been booked opposite one another in the UFC 137 main event.

A staple of both GSP and Carlos Condit’s fight preparation and cornering, Jackson tells MMAfighting.com’s Ariel Helwani that he is taking a step back from this fight and won’t have anything to do with either fighter in the upcoming title bout.
