Thoughts as they progressed through my brain while watching the first episode of "UFC Primetime: Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks" leading into UFC 167.
— If you recall all past media opportunities, every fight is the greatest challenge Georges St-Pierre has faced in his career.
— Remnants of a shiner on St-Pierre’s right eye.
— GSP thinks about Johny Hendricks when he’s going to the bathroom?
— Sometimes, GSP reminds of me Cougar in "Top Gun." Think about it for a minute.
— Playoff beards are a bit cliche, but GSP's little fight beard has a nice gangsta lean to it. It can’t compare to the girth of Hendricks' facial hair, of course.
— Whoa, was that a photo of Johny Hendricks sans beard? Yes, yes it was.
— Ah yes, time for inside-the-car driving shots. Can’t have an MMA documentary without those. Why? No idea.
— These Little Johny Hendricks photos are awesome.
— Trainer Firas Zahabi's explanation of GSP's approach to mentally preparing for a fight is perfect.
— What are the odds that a few years from now, stories will circulate that GSP is considering an Olympic gymnastics attempt with Team Canada?
— Anyone want to talk about that slash with the hockey stick that kid put on GSP?
— Ooooh, the house GSP grew up in. Nice!
— Is Hendricks' T-shirt in this Jeff Gordon segment two sizes too small or is he that jacked?
— GSP: "You need to be insane to be champion."
