I doubt it. He has stated many times that he is not a big WW, he has also stated that he is not used to cutting weight, and does not like doing it. I also doubt he is ever out of shape during the off season... so I'd be willing to bet he walks around at 185-187, like he says.

GSP is not like the typical fighter who has an off-season, then does a 8 week camp to get in shape, ya know?

First link after googling "Georges St Pierre weight:"

MMANews.com: Oh 205 would just be insane. What weight do you walk around at?

Georges St. Pierre: I walk around at 185. But if I have to fight, for example, in a higher weight class - I'm going to have a program. A weight program. I'm going to lift weights, I'm going to find a way to get a little bit bigger. I would never be able to be as big as, for example, Chuck Liddell because first I don't want to take steroids and stuff like that. I'm always natural and I hate like ...I know a lot of people use that, but me I'm not that kind of guy. I prefer to stay healthy all my life than having a title. You know what I'm saying because nothing can buy health. So I will find a way to do it and I'm up to the challenge.

I can't believe that, seems so crazy considering that he is about the same size as Rashad.

Rashad is a pretty small LHW though.

actually GSP has stated before that his walk around weight is 185-187 and that he actually looks bigger than he is. He mentioned this because after the thiago fight where thiago outweighed GSP by about 20 lbs. he decided to hire a nutritionist to gain some lean muscle mass. Since then he has said that his walk around weight is now at 195-197.


that being said There is No way GSP is going to go down to 155. If anything he is preparing his body to possibly move up to middleweight or a possible showdown with a. silva

Not a chance. Hell he is talking about not even cutting down to 170 eventually because of the bulking up that he is doing right now. Says he doesn't want to do anything that is going to really hurt his body.

This whole thing would be silly anyway you look at it. Why would GSP move down to fight one guy? Especially one that he has beaten twice. GSP can cut to 155 once his fighting career is over but its pointless now, he belongs at 170 for good. This is how a guy fits into his proper weight class, fighting at or just under his average weight and not dehrydrated like prunes as you see in fighters like Vera and AJ.
