Long time Welterweight UFC Champion Georges St-Pierre has teased a possible move to Middleweight for a super fight with Anderson Silva. “Rush” indicates it would be easier for him to step down a weight class instead of packing on a few pounds.
“I don’t do much cutting. It would be easier for me to go fight at 155 than fighting at 185. I would be more at my weight naturally at 155. There’s guys at 155 that walk around at 190, like me. They think I’m big because I have a large frame, but I’m not a big guy. I’m not thick.”
So is the real super fight GSP versus Benson Henderson? If St-Pierre is so worried about the weight differential with Anderson “The Spider” Silva” then maybe he oughta drop to the division down below? The titleholder there is also calling his name, says he’d go up, unconcerned about weighing the same as GSP on fight night.
