Machida willing to meet GSP at middleweight

source: fightersonlymag.com
 

Machida revealed that he may be back in a training routine in ten days, first having to heal up a knee injury. “I will be ready to re-start in ten days to fight in December, who knows?” he says, giving no clue on who his next opponent will be.

However like his countryman and friend Anderson Silva, he has professed an interest in fighting the welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre in a superfight. “It would be an interesting karate duel but I don't know at what weight we would do it. If it is at 185lbs, I will go for it,” says the former light-heavyweight champ.

GSP is an average-sized WW with a ton of muscle. So what if he bulks up to 195 AT MOST? It's just that...BULKING. His perfect walking around weight is 180-185. He'd be better off at 155 than 185.

I agree its not a call out, just a comment on Machida's part.And after thinking about it, I don't have a problem with them fighting - I'm assuming it would be at 170, since GSP and Machida are the same size, so Machida would have no more problem than GSP at making WW.It could even be a WW title fight, which would give Machida a chance to be the first to have had a WW and a LHW title. Win-win for everyone at 170.

Or maybe you posted two pictures in which GSP is breathing heavily, and the picture caught him on an inhale?

this is like the worst fight for GSP since he won't be able to take Lyoto down with a double leg
