GSP to train with Sage Northcutt

Georges St-Pierre to train with Sage Northcutt, Friday at TriStar gym
By Elias Cepeda, FOX Sports
Since winning his UFC debut earlier this month in just 57 seconds, lightweight Sage Northcutt has elicited comparisons to retired former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

Both are physical specimens with explosive talent inside the cage and trained politeness in conversation outside of it. On Thursday, however, Northcutt was compared to GSP by someone who ought to know -- St-Pierre's long-time friend and head coach, Firas Zahabi.

Northcutt is visiting Zahabi's TriStar gym in Montreal, this week, and according to the coach, Sage and his fighting hero St-Pierre will train together on Friday.
