Georges St-Pierre has seemingly had no problems defending his title but that does not prevent him from always attempting to better himself and prepare for his opponents. For his upcoming fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 137, which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Event Center, St-Pierre has brought in former nemesis and title challenger Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy in an effort to train and get ready for what Condit brings to the table.

St-Pierre announced this almost shocking news via Twitter earlier today stating, "Guess who landed in town yesterday night to come train with me?" and followed that up with, "For sure he'll bring the much needed intensity to get prepared...Dan Hardy!!"

This is a brilliant move for St-Pierre because he brings in a somewhat similar striking style to Condit and Hardy has also fought against "The Natural Born Killer" in a losing effort that Hardy has wanted revenge for ever since.

One thing is for sure, both Hardy and St-Pierre should benefit from training with one another. Hardy brings an intensity and confidence with him to the Octagon while St-Pierre brings a smooth and subtle approach to the ring.

St-Pierre is attempting to defend his championship for a seventh consecutive time and add another victim to the ever growing list of opponents he has defeated during his tenure with the UFC.
