Florian, Parisyan Headed to Tri-Star Gym in Montreal

Once Georges St-Pierre dismantled B.J. Penn at UFC 94 to retain his welterweight championship, Tri-Star Gym in Montreal, Quebec further cemented its status as one of the top-tier mixed martial arts training schools in the world.

Tri-Star, headed by Firas Zahabi, could be adding a few more fighters to its stable of viable world-class competitors, which currently includes St-Pierre, David Loiseau, Denis Kang and Jonathan Goulet.

Coming off the heels of an uninspiring split decision win over Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 94, judo wizard Karo "The Heat" Parisyan will be making his way down to Tri-Star to do some training with conditioning coach Jonathan Chaimberg and head instructor Zahabi.

Also slated to make his way down to the "Beautiful Province" for training is Team Sityodtong member Kenny Florian, who looks to benefit from a full training camp with Zahabi and St-Pierre before taking on Penn for the lightweight title later this year.

The news was confirmed by Zahabi and Chaimberg at Tri-Star Gym on Friday.

In addition to the aforementioned UFC competitors, Tri-Star is home to many of the sport's most promising young prospects, including John Makdessi, Thierry Quenneville and Mike Ricci, all three of whom will be competing at XMMA 7 on Feb. 27.

Karo Parisyan? with a conditioning coach? :lol: but for Real, if you need to make improvements to your game, there's nothing like training with GSP.

maybe somebody slaps some sense into karo, a condition coach is the best possible thing for that slob. i always think he should get some stnad up skills instead of trying to judo everythign, its mma buddy not olympic judo competition.
maybe the guy should go train some boxing wit darchinyan

Yes I cant stand Karo. Dude could always be in better shape and his stand up should be top notch by now. He has been a full time fighter for sometime now. I hope he finally takes his skills to the next level.

Also Florian is the man I hope he takes lessons from gallagher and smashes that watermelon

Is it really a good time to switch camps when you are fighting for a title? Maybe he wont be comfortable with that gym or not improve as much? (Not saying he wont but maybe he just doesnt mesh?)

I get he wants to train with GSP cuz he just won, but his camp got him this far!

Florian is gunna be a monster after Tri-Star. This gym is quickly becoming one of the most impressive places to train and the teamwork to get everyone ready for their fights is incredible.
