The camp is lead by elite MMA coaches and fighters like Georges St-Pierre’s trainer Firas Zahabi and UFC fighter Cung Le. Other instructors at the event include UFC middleweight title contender Chris Weidman, who is awaiting a shot at Anderson Silva in July; Anthony Pettis, who is scheduled to challenge Jose Aldo for his UFC featherweight belt; and last but not least, GSP training partner Rory MacDonald, who has some big wins against Che Mills and the legendary B.J. Penn.
The Tristar Gym has become the Mecca of the Canadian martial arts world with superstar fighter George St-Pierre dominating the welterweight division and his coach, Firas Zahabi, becoming known as the one of the best coaches in the MMA world. The gym has attracted a new generation of young, raw, talented fighters that have became household names, including rising stars like Rory MacDonald and The Ultimate Fighter finalist Mike Ricci. The list of other fighters who have trained in the gym goes on and on, including Jon Jones, Kenny Florian and Miguel Torres.
