NHL Fighters Salute UFC

From Chris Johnston at the CP via the Globe & Mail,

“Even the worst UFC fighter that there is would beat me because of their training,” said Pittsburgh Penguins enforcer Georges Laraque. “It’s so much harder than anything I’ve ever seen.

“I’m a fighter, so I know how hard they work and I know how hard it is to go against someone.”
