Coach: GSP wants to fight Anderson Silva


Georges St-Pierre wants to meet Anderson Silva in a superfight, according to his coach.

"He told me yes," said Firas Zahabi. "But I think there's a lot to be negotiated. I don't know much more than that."

St-Pierre is back training after a holiday following his successful welterweight title defence last month against Carlos Condit at UFC 154 in Montreal.

"Georges is doing a more relaxed form of training," said Zahabi. "After a fight like that [against Condit], he needs time off. He's just doing more playful types of training. But Georges' hobby is martial arts, so for him it's a pleasure what he's doing."

Wtf are you talking about? Am I even saying anything about how competitive the two would be against each other? You have the reading comprehension skills of my 3 year-old nephew. Try again.

GSP is the favourite to win, in my eyes, if the fight is at 177.5. I think GSP could beat AS at 185 as well but obviously the higher weight fight helps AS.

GSP needs some time off? This kind of makes me scratch my head. You would think after 18 months off, and the fact he is now healthy he would want to get back in the cage as quickly as possible. I understand wanting a training camp, and I understand wanting to take a little time off. However I would think if you wanted to solidify yourself as the best ever you would want to get back in the cage and fight the other guy who people think is the best on the planet simply to prove a point.

He should get Anderson to cut as close to 170 as possible, GSP has a chance, a great chance to take the W, also a great chance he gets KO'd.But if cheal was Silvas greatest threat with his telegraphed take downs(powerful, but telegraphed), I could only imagine the trouble GSP will give silva with his not telegraphed, powerful takedowns.People talking about GSP not losing any status taking a loss from the GOAT, but I believe silva is smart in, a loss to the other guy in P4p list, wouldn't be to bad either, way easier to swallow than a loss to weidman. Not a knock on weidman, he just doesn't have any legacy points.

Ah Georges, you stated you were bullied when you were younger & now you are letting others bully you into this fight.

Idk I'd say losing by knockout, then winning every fight you've ever gotten in since then is taking a loss pretty well
