Georges St. Pierre ready for Penn; is Silva next?

http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...=7330&zoneid=2

Quote:
UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre won his fight with UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn by a razor’s edge.

Their UFC 58 battle was another example in a running debate amongst mixed martial arts fans – should the most damaged fighter be declared the loser? St. Pierre definitely lost in that department – he spent a night in a Las Vegas hospital, badly banged up – but two judges ruled he had come out ahead on points, giving him the 29-28 nod.

Two-and-a-half years removed from that important bout, St. Pierre wants to eliminate all the "what ifs." In a recent video interview with MMAWeekly.com, he spoke about fighting Penn for a second time.

“I’m a different fighter than I used to be,” he said. “And he is as well. This time, I want to take him out. I don’t want to go to a decision. I want to finish him.”

The fight is not signed yet, but St. Pierre thinks it will be sometime in the next week.

He left for Albuquerque, N.M. to get some training in with Greg Jackson’s camp. Right now, he’s gathering information from a variety of sources before putting it all together in an MMA-only environment.

St. Pierre’s countryman and teammate, Patrick Cote, is neck deep in his preparation for Anderson Silva at UFC 90. The fight poses an interesting question for St. Pierre’s future. He has previously said he would be open to going up a weight division to face Silva. Given he won’t fight his teammate, would another Penn victory push him towards the middleweight champion?

“A lot of people have been challenging me so far,” he said. “I have a lot of friends at 185. To tell you the truth, I’m not afraid of challenging nobody at 185. I’m very confident in myself.

“I think I can do pretty well (against Silva). I think I’m a different fighter than all the guys who have fought him in the past. There’s only one way to find out.”

These are the questions for three champions dominant in their respective weight groups.

St. Pierre says a lot of stars would have to be in alignment for a Silva fight to happen, and Penn is more than enough for now. If and when they square off on the 31st of January, St. Pierre wants to be the one doing the most damage.

“It’s a fight that everybody wants to see, including myself,” he said.
I'm all for these super fights.. Though I know alot of people aren't, because of them being in different weight classes among other things. I think people are more annoyed about the BJ GSP fight.

I want to see them both though.

To me, BJ presents the toughest test to GSP, and GSP presents the toughest test to Anderson Silva.

I'd pick GSP in both fights.

Both of these fights will/would be awesome. All 3 of these guys are considered to be in the top 5 pound for pound by most, and they are all in their prime. I would rather miss out on a BJ title defense against Kenny, then miss out on BJ/GSP.

Both of these fights have the potential to be the most exciting fights in MMA history, all fighters are incredibly well-rounded, and are very active standing and on the ground.

I think I would pick GSP in both fights as well, but I certainly wouldn't consider any outcome an upset.

I am not sure that the GSP vs Silva fight will be as good as every thinks. I just dont like the idea of GSP moving up to 185 and Silva going back down to 185. I dont know, something just doesnt feel right about that matchup.

I agree with everyone seems like most people have gsp taking Penn and Silva out very interesting. If anyone can beat Silva its surely GSP.

If GSP fought Silva, would that be Silva's toughest fight to date? Who else has Silva fought that was better than GSP? I could see an argument made about Dan Henderson, but Dan Henderson is far off the P4P list and GSP is right at the top of that list.

All these fights could easily go either way. I think gsp at 185 would lose to sila, just because of the reach and size advantage gsp has. I think gsp/penn fight would be amazing with gsp pulling out the UD. I don't see gsp finishing penn.

It will be tough but I hope he finishes him. GSP is so classical and Penn is cocky and selfish lately. There is no reason why the lw belt has to be on hold just so Mr Penn can jump from weight to weight to have his way. Thats fine but you lose your belt in the process. It just doesnt seem fair to me or the other fighters to have to wait

I think BJ beats GSP, based on better striking and great TDD.

And I think GSP beats Anderson Silva based on his wrestling.
