World famous trainer Greg Jackson spoke about two fighters he trained facing off for the welterweight title at UFC 137 with mmafighting.com:
“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.
Carlos is still training with a team. I am just not going to do game plans and private lessons and everything that I normally do for the guys because usually it’s a pretty intense process — I give them private lessons all the time — heavy on the game planning, heavy on the personal growth plan, and for this, I’ll just let the other coaches do that for both Georges and Carlos. So I’ll just step out. They’re all amazing coaches. Geez, I’m the worst coach on the team. They’ll all do their thing.”
