So, GSP Is Considering Fighting Anderson Silva Next, According to Coach


Quote:
Remember a few weeks ago when Georges St. Pierre’s former manager, Stephane Patry published the UFC welterweight champ’s supposed “secret plan” to retire after a fight with middleweight G.O.A.T. Anderson Silva and then St. Pierre and his head coach Firas Zahabi did a horrible job of lying and totally denied that GSP had made such a plan while focusing so intensely on his coming fight with Nick Diaz? Yeah, well, the ruse is pretty much over now.

Zahabi was on Sherdog Radio recently and spilled the beans on the record regarding tentative possibilities (I know, be still your hearts!) for St. Pierre’s career. After the champ returns from vacation, Zahabi says that the fighter, coach and management will listen to what the UFC wants and discuss their options.

According to the coach, Anderson Silva and number one welterweight contender Johny Hendricks are both possible. “I think Georges would do either fight, to be honest with you,” Zahabi told Sherdog.

“If he fights Hendricks, I think he could fight for longer. He could have more fights after that. If he fights Anderson Silva, I could really see that being his last fight. He’ll retire after that because there won’t be a bigger fight for him to do, I think, anymore in his career.

“Win or lose, I think he’ll probably end on that note, on Anderson Silva. Maybe that’s why it’s been pushed back a little bit, but I think when it does happen, it’ll be the last one because once he goes up a weight class, he’s never coming back down.”

Yeah, so Patry is looking like a pretty credible source right about now. What do you say, nation? Do you want to see St. Pierre fight Silva next in a super fight we’ve been wanting for the last 3-5 years? Or, are you the only person not named Johny Hendricks that would rather see St. Pierre fight Johny Hendricks next, instead?

There’s always the chance that Chris Weidman beats Silva in July, however, and just absolutely ruins every freaking thing. How about Weidman and Hendricks fight one another, next?

Doesn’t really matter where – an arena, the loading dock of an arena, their front lawns – just so long as they are occupied and stay out of the way of St. Pierre and Silva fighting. No one has been lobbying harder for Weidman’s shot but sorry, Chris. St. Pierre no longer ducking Silva changes everything.

God, if this happens, Johny "Ya Know what I'm sayin'" Hendricks will lose his mind!

I'm kind of over it for now, if it happens? Great. I wouldn't be sad if it didn't happen though.

Um, if GSP is soo confident in a Weidman win and finish....why would this make sense?

GSP is hedging. Throw out the idea that somehow finally he is READY to fight Anderson. (I guess he ran out of the all the 170 contenders he said he had just a few months ago) So if Anderson DOES lose he gets to say "well I was ready to do it...and he lost". If Anderson wins, he will say there are a bunch of contenders left at 170 and fighting Anderson wouldn't be fair.

Same old stuff from GSP. If Anderson beats Weidman with ease....it is basically proof that GSP has no shot. If he sees his semi training partner lose to Anderson...the man he picked to win... that will defiantly make him not want that fight.

It is one of those "I'll believe it when I see it". Anderson JUST asked for the fight over and over. So now when he is scheduled to fight another guy, GSP now wants to come with rumblings of wanting to do that fight?

GSP's camp should be bitch slapped.

Did you really expect GSP to say, 'I think Chris is going to get demolished'?

Use your head, boy. Never has a friend or training partner said, 'He gon' get whooped!' when asked how ______ will fare.

Did I say I did?

But when he says he will win. Not only win finish. And then smiles and say "I think everyone will be very surprised"...I am taking some of it for what he says.

If Anderson picked say Erick Silva over GSP. He would say "I probably won't fight GSP, as I think Erick Silva will be the 170lb champ and that fight wouldn't make any sense." That is what he would say.

I see right through what Zeebideebi says. "If he fights Anderson it will probably be his last, if he fights Hendricks he probably has more fights ahead of him". In other words...UFC don't push an Anderson fight, as you won't have your cash cow anymore because he will retire.

Who cares? Silva is not a threat to GSP's legacy, he is a middleweight. Hendricks is banging on GSP's door right now, saying 'Oi, I smashed everyone else, you're next!'.

GSP claims to care about legacy... to leave 170lb now would do it damage IMO. He's not like Anderson, who has already made a point of shifting weight class without needing a superfight as motivation.

GSP is the 170lb division. I don't like to say it but, my initial reaction if he fights Anderson instead of Hendricks is that he's sold out.

I'm so tired of this. It's the same thing over and over again. GSP's camp will say/imply that GSP wants to fight Silva, then everyone will ask GSP if that's true and he'll say "All my attention is on __________, I do not have time to think about Silva." Either fight him or don't.

I want to see this fight more then most but now is not the time. GSP blew his chance of fighting Silva and now has to deal with Hendricks before this fight makes sense again.
