“It would be a crime for Anderson to try and fight at 77kg. He could maybe make the weight but the physical loss that he would suffer would be too much,” he says.
 
“Currently Anderson has been weighing 92-94kg because he’s been thinking about this dropping weight to take GSP on. Anderson losing 3gk and St-Pierre going up 3kg would be more fair for both of them and for the public, who would watch a great fight.”

177.5 is the ideal weight.

Meet each other halfway.

Brazilian doctors are used to big booty women and steroid ripped dudes. They cannot allow such things.

Ah, so Silva is 202-206 lbs in preparation to drop weight (in other words he usually weights more). So much for those saying Anderson is 195 or something like that to minimize the size difference.

You should probably stop calling out the champ in a division you can't make weight for anymore.

Who says he's 195? I and others have said many times he begins camp at 205-210. This is nothing new.

Funny the doctor would say a guy who weighs 202-206 can't fight at 170, though. That's not an unusual pre-training camp weight for a welterweight.

Silva should just stay in his proper weight class. Or he can easily fight @ LHW.

Only GSP does not want to come off 170 nor will he. That's NO crime lol.

Probably has something to do with all of those guys having more muscle mass than Silva. It's not like 5'9 alves and hendricks woke up one day looking like bodybuilders. Phone Post

Soooooo, this doctor not only knows that dropping to 170 would be bad for Anderson, this doctor ALSO knows that the public would get a better fight if GSP went up 3kg?

Just do it at 179lbs or so. Anderson can make it as he has weighed in at like 182 for MW fights before and GSP wont have to cut weight and/or could muscle up a bit.

Anderson should cut to 170 if he wants this fight. I don't want to see some catch weight where excuses will be available for both. Make the weight for the 170lb belt or STFU about it already. I don't like GSP's fighting style but he is the 170 champ and never jumped weight classes before! He should say 170 or no fight at all. LOL @ Calling someone smaller out and expecting them to gain weight for it.

So, we're essentially confirming that all doctors from brazil are full of shit? Or just these two?

Also, what agency regulates criminal weightloss, and can we get them to start paying equal attention to weight gain? I know a bunch of people that could probably benefit from some regulation on their increasing mass. Phone Post

Silva should either make the weight of the person HE'S calling out , and they make it a Championship fight . Or he stays , I would rather see GSP fight Diaz and Hendricks next .
It's BS that GSP has to put weight on for a fight somebody else wants . Phone Post

With half a year to diet and trip some of his mass, Anderson has the frame to get down to 170. I'm sure it can be done with enough effort.

Shorter guys like Alves/Hendricks are comprised of much more muscle mass at 210 than a 210 Anderson. That is why they can dehydrate a larger % of their body weight.

 

MEET IN THE MIDDLE GSP.
