Our reporter Brian D'Souza got a really good interview with Georges St. Pierre at the 'Striking Truth' premiere, and asked him about everything from his split from manager Shari Spencer, to the criticism of his fighting style, to the Anderson Silva superfight, to the unauthorized biography that's coming out about him. Please take a look!

 ^ Good post, and we can end it there, because I think we've both made our points.  I respect your position even if I don't agree with it entirely.

Well we were debating him being too big or too small, not GSP's reasoning for not taking the fight yet. If you want to get into that, this thread could go another seven pages so I'll try to keep it brief. If you ask me, it's a combination of things; he wants time to put on weight, he had a friend in contention for the title, and he hasn't cleaned out his own division yet (UFC signed Shields just to challenge GSP.) Plus he always avoids questions about opponents other than who he's fighting next. He dodged questions about Jake Shields before fighting Koscheck, I don't think anyone attributed that to him being afraid of Shields. Yes I think GSP has some fear of moving up. Which is why he wants to do it properly. He's not just going to eat his way to 200lbs and cut water weight to make 185, nor should he. Not to mention the most significant thing of all. GSP has never been offered the fight. The day they send him the contract and he turns it down, then maybe all the "GSP is afraid" will be warranted. "Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared."

I do not agree with this at all. GSP does not have Andersons height or long frame. Trying to weigh close to what anderson weighs will accomplish nothing other than slow him down.GSP could easily take this fight by doing exactly what he has been doing. akedown, top control and GnP. His advantages over Anderson would be his wrestling and his SPEED. To bulk up to "over 185" would negate that major advantage.BJ did the same stupid shit when he fought GSP for the second time. Other than having a horrid(none) game plan, he weighed like 168 or something. He should have stayed lighter and in better shape and used his speed/wrestling/BJJ like he did against fitch until he gassed.IMO anyway

George prepares for one fight at time Shields is and should be his main concern right now. Just another great test for a great champion. When you are a Penn fan you would never like the answers. The Champ is Canadian

 I'm not saying he should bulk up at all.  As it si, He would  need to lose10 pounds or so from his current walk around weight and he could make middle weight.  No need to bulk up any further.  He certainly isn't goingto use any bulk to beat Anderson.  Tht's just an excuse for guys who don't know a lot about MMA.  GSPs game is the take down game and jiu jitsu in order to hold guys down.  If anything he needs to be as fast and agile as possible.  You've bought into the needing to add bulk excuse when he's already over the limit by a considerable amount.
