GSP talks AS

Quote:
"I donít know (about fighting Anderson Silva). I need to sit down with my entourage and see first where this fight will take place and what weight, and a bunch of stuff. Right now Iím focusing just on Jake Shields, I donít see further than Jake Shields."

"It would take a long time (to add the size). Anderson Silva is a huge guy; heís weighing around 230 pounds. He's very big. Even when he fights as a light heavyweight, he looks bigger than the other guys."

"I donít know if Iím going to go up (to) 185. I have no idea; itís a complete reorientation of my career. I have a lot to lose and I havenít thought about it, I havenít sat down to talk about it."

GSP seems unsure, good, hopefully more people will start to realise that this fight is not very plausible in terms of weight.

If he was really after the fight, I would be keener.

But he isnt. Neither is Silva.

I wish the MMA community would just drop this silly idea.

Thanks side.

I'd rather see Silva step up to Light Heavy and prove himself the best there (even heavyweight before he fights the far smaller GSP, it's a mismatch I feel)

Except for mentioning Jake Shields it sounds just like an older interview I read.

Seems no one listens to Georges.

I hope GSP doesn't cave to the pressure to move to 185 or fight AS. I really don't see the problem with him having a long reign as the 170 champ.

There will always be those who say 'He isn't challenged'. Heck with those people, none of us have any idea of the pressure on him to constantly fight the best in his division and balance that with the business side of being a champion, dealing with sponsors, and still trying to improve as a mixed martial artist.

I think GSP feels like he HAS to fight Silva, but really doesn't want to, or move up in weight. With all the hype around the fight, and Dana talking about trying to set it up, it must be really hard for GSP to say no to it.

If he's not 100% excited to move up, he shouldn't. There's too much to lose.
I do not like the idea of somebody abandoning their weight class, because he's 'cleaned it out'. The next champion doesn't get any credibility in that scenario and if you lose the title match in the higher weight class, you've lost everything.

Looks like we agree on something my friend.
I was never a fan of this fight.
But, if this fight were to happen, i believe GSP would need at least 6 months to bulk up properly. I would hate to hear excuses after the fight.

I am still laughing at the guy who said GSP vs Silva would be very possible for June or July this year...no bulk-up problem! LOL

There are so many great potential match ups for Silva at LHW, I don't understand why all the hype surrounds a potential match up with GSP when he could be pitted against the top stars in the LHW division.

I'd love to see him fight any of the following.. Rampage, Rashad, Shogun, Machida or Jones. He has already proved himself up at that weight by beating Griffin with ease and I wouldn't doubt his ability to beat any of those listed.
