USA TODAY: Globetrotting Francis Carmont relishes chance at UFC 154
November 16, 2012 (13:15) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie
Francis Carmont recently gave
himself a new nickname. It comes
from a movie, but it might as well tell
the story of his roadshow of an MMA career thus far.
Carmont goes by "Limitless," after the 2011
film featuring Bradley Cooper and
Robert De Niro, because that's the
type of energy he brings to his fights.
But it also fits with his travel schedule.
In 26 pro fights, the Frenchman

whether we're standing or the fight is on the ground," Condit said. "I
try to finish from my back if I get put there, which I think is a big

MONTREAL - For a man who thinks deeply through life's every aspect - or for a guy with a master's in philosophy, as John Danaher is - the fight camp of Georges St-Pierre has posed several interesting problems.
