Zahabi: Silva should drop to 170 for GSP

Monday, November 19, 2012

Scheduling the bout isn’t as easy as it sounds however. In the years that this fight has been discussed the fighters’ weight has been the biggest source of contention. Today on The MMA Hour GSP’s trainer Firas Zahabi gave his opinion:

“I wouldn’t want [St-Pierre] to move up, I’d want Anderson to come down,” Zahabi said. “I don’t know if Anderson can make 170 or something close to that. If Georges goes up, I know he won’t be able to come back down, he’s told me many times if he goes up he won’t go back down, and I believe him when he says that because he’d want to spend some serious time getting extra size on him. and, … I would want [Silva] to come down as close to 170 as possible if that was the case.
