While lesser competitors are content with being considered one of the world’s best fighters, UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre is focused squarely on going down as MMA’s G.O.A.T.

GSP holds a dominant 19-2 record and hasn’t been challenged in his last six landslide outings. The 170-pound king has been preparing relentlessly for his UFC 111 title defense against Dan Hardy on March 27th, however because of his undying hunger for greatness, Firas Zahabi, St-Pierre’s head trainer at Tri-Star Gym, says the champ has been getting better and more vicious each day.

“His takedowns are better than ever. His takedown defense is better than ever. His striking power is increasing,” Zahabi said of the constant need to push the training camp envelope. “Everything in [training] is increasing, so we started doing more and more and it’s just taking off.”

Here’s the YouTube clip showing a sprightly St-Pierre hurdling a four-foot marker:
