In terms of popularity in his home country, there's no athlete in the world like Manny Pacquiao. What U.S. athlete can say they're a candidate to make the national news on any given night? Pacman updates hit the Filipino airwaves throughout the year.

Last week, Georges St. Pierre and the UFC benefitted from the coverage. GSP went on a three-day promotional trip and hit Pacquiao's gym. He got a chance to work a little more with Pacman's trainer Freddie Roach and watch Pacquiao in action. He came away impressed saying Pacman is the fastest thing he's ever seen.
