GSP would consider superfight with Anderson Silva


Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre recently spoke with ESP Brazil, and discussed a potential fight with former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

First of all, St-Pierre thinks Silva will be back.

"I used to think, before his first fight against Chris Weidman, that Anderson Silva was the number 1, the best fighter pound-for-pound," said GSP as translated by BloodyElbow. "But now he is recovering from a leg injury but I think he will come back. He has the heart of a champion."

GSP also said that if he decides to come back, he would take a super fight with Silva, provided some conditions were met.

"There were conversations before but they were talking about me going up at 185," said GSP. "I weigh 190 pounds, the guy weighs 230 pounds when he is off season. I'm 190 pounds off season. Right now I'm 195 at maximum. My friends saw him and he is now 230, 235. I know people who know him. He is very big. It's not a fair fight for me. Before, Anderson Silva was in my size when he used to fight in Japan but he is very big now.

"They were talking also that he was going to come in my division when I was the champion and I would have no choice. But me going up and after I fight go back down...I can't play with my weight. I can't come back and fight for the title or in a superfight. It has to respect my conditions, I all ask is a fair fight. Right now I need to take some time off. But if they have an offer with something good, maybe."

The idea was also broached by the Silva camp earlier this year, by Silva's manager Ed Soares.

"If we were able to pull something like that off, it would be a win-win for everybody - the fans, the UFC," said Soares in January.

Jesus Christ. This is exactly the same shit he has always said. He isn't interested in it but would do it under the right circumstances.He says the same thing every fucking time he is asked and every fucking time the same none story pops up.All that being said, this thread is somehow a little more interesting than most UG blogs.

  Forgeting that he said years ago right off the bat that his "goal" was to be MW champ, you may be spot on.   Let's not forget how hard it was for him to cut and not be much slower (with all his muscle) in the last few years too right?
