Our friends at SporTV passed along these pics of Georges St. Pierre and Vitor Belfort training together as both fighters prepare for their upcoming bouts in 2012.

From VitorBelfort.com:

Alvaro Romano introduced his unique training to GSP and his champion crew. It was a day of full throttle intense training. The introduction was his core principles then followed by BJJ three world time champion Gilbert Durinho showing some inside information.

St. Pierre will defend his welterweight title against Nick Diaz at UFC 143 on Feb. 4 in Las Vegas while Belfort welcomes Anthony Johnson to the 185-pound weight class at UFC 142 on Jan. 14 in Brazil.

Whaddaya think Maniacs, did the best just get better? And does anyone else think "Rush" can make the trip up to 185 based on these photos?
