Wouldn't that keep them closer to each other? GSP just said he was worried about how much weight Anderson would put on fight night? Phone Post

Diaz vs Anderson at 170lbs. Diaz wanted that fight. It will do good ppv buys and be a money fight.

Anderson can show he can make 170lbs.

Sets up a super fight for the winner to take GSP.

No need to argue about weight if Anderson can make 170lbs.

Yeah make the 38 year old GOAT cut the weight so the PAPER goatie can look good. Tell you want. Even drained, Silva is twice as good as GSP. GSP is like that weak kid who took karate and really worked hard at it. Silva is the naturally talented guy who's also happen to be hard working.

the 38 year old goat is the one calling out GSP. Who is in a weight class below him and is recovering from a massive knee surgery and a year + layoff.


Really GOAT like.

Let's do Anderson vs Jones at 195 since GSP won't fight Anderson at 177.

Yup, lets face it, GSP has no talent. It'd be pretty easy for any of us to do what he does, if we could just be bothered to try. The only reason the other WW's don't beat him is because none of them train hard.

That would be a lil retarded dont you think considering Anderson has already fought 3 times at LH all 3 first round knock outs.

Hell at this point Anderson might as well be the number one contender at LH. Bones has already beaten everyone else note worthy and is now fighting Anderson's left overs.

I thought the problem with Anderson vs GSP is that they are supposedly too far apart in weight? Anderson and Jones are even farther. Anderson supposedly is willing to fight GSP at 177, is Jones willing to meet Anderson halfway at 195?

Please clarify:

 

Do you mean make them weigh in at the specified weigh on the day of the fight?

or

Make them weigh in AGAIN, after already making CW the day before, just to see where they are at?

You are right GSP was way to big and the size difference was too much for BJ to over come. However BJ and GSP are very close in size compared to GSP and Anderson.

 


LMAO at this notion.

 

 

There was ~14 pounds between GSP and BJ.

GSP currently is 190-193 in the cage and Anderson was 198 for his last fight @ 185. If Anderson had to go to 177.5 he would be even lighter than that, while GSP is cutting less than normal...The weight gap is less with Andy/GSP than it was GSP/BJ.

Reach:

GSP: 76"

Andy: 77.5"

BJ: 70"

 

The ONLY factor that GSP vs BJ was closer in was height. Sorry.

BJ is a naturally unhealthy person who doesn't enjoy training or dieting, the only reason he wanted to fight at 170 is so he could keep eating fast food. GSP is a very healthy person who lives a very healthy and fit lifestyle, it would be much harder for him to move up in weight given his lifestyle

If GSP was 190-193 in the cage on Saturday, what was Condit? 215 or so?  Come off it.  GSP fights at around 185.  BJ also has a history of fighting at WW.  Georges has no experience fighting at anything other than 170.  His entire career has been there.

^^^^^ I guess you're right and GSP's head coach and dietician is wrong then:

"Firas Zahabi: Georges has been getting better at cutting weight. He’s walking around at 194.  There was a time when he used to walk around at 180 to make 170. He cuts weight so easily we added more muscle.

MC: How do you drop 25 pounds and still retain your strength and explosiveness?

FZ: It becomes a game. Now he’s on a protein and vegetable diet. Right now his exercise is significantly cut, but he’s going to shed water. It’s only temporary weight loss. It’s not real weight loss. You’re not dropping fat. (The final weight-cut) lasts about six days . . . By Friday he’ll have six or seven pounds left and we’ll put him in the sauna. I don’t recommend this to anybody, even professional athletes. This is somebody who’s very seasoned.

As soon as the weigh-in is done (Friday afternoon) we’ll give him a recovery drink. We’ll even give him Prime (a workout supplement by Gatorade, which sponsors St-Pierre) because he needs the carbohydrates that much more . . . he’ll enter the ring at 192 or 193 pounds."

that the whole joke of this. gsp has never fought above 170. him fighting anderson even at 177.5 still doesn't make much sense cuz gsp has never fought anyone past 170. anderson has fought successfully at 205 on 3 occasions but won't fight rashad, shogun, rampage, jones, etc. but for some reason people expect gsp to fight at a different weight class for the first time and to do it against the middleweight champ. it doesn't make sense rationally.... emotionally sure.

"him fighting anderson even at 177.5 still doesn't make much sense cuz gsp has never fought anyone past 170"

It makes plenty of sense because every opponent GSP has ever fought with the exception of BJ has weighed over 170. He claims Hardy and Alves were like 200lb. 

Why is it so hard for people to understand that GSP has already fought heavier opponents, guys likely not far off in weight from Anderson on fight night, and that GSP doesn't have to do ANYTHING differently himself? He doesn't have to put on weight, he doesn't have to "move up", he doesn't have to "fight in a different weight class".

He is not fighting in a division, he is fighting ONE OPPONENT. So all that matters is the weight of THAT opponent. And the fact is that even at 198 for his 185 fights, Anderson is only a few pounds more than guys in GSP's own division, so what's the difference? And at a catchweight Anderson would be even less.

Johnny Hendricks begins his camp at 210+ and is 195 two weeks from the fight -- just a few pounds less than Anderson. Why doesn't GSP have a problem fighting him?

Your brain is fried. Nobody without an extreme amount of talent learns to wrestle at the level GSP does at a late age, its almost unheard of. AS hasnt learned to wrestle like that despite all his talent.

weigh in at prep point just before fight.190 limit. forfeit 10% of purse for every pound over that. i know people talk about being worried that fighters will come into ring/octogan dehydrated if its done that way, but no way that happens with these guys.
