St-Pierre acknowledges the fact that it will act as a blot on his career if he never moves up to fight middleweight king Silva, and he revealed a move to 185lbs could happen in the not-too-distant future.

"I plan to do it at one point in my career," GSP told Ultimate Insider. "The problem is not to go up. The problem is to go back down after. And it's not good to play with your health because when you gain weight and you jump another weight class, the reaction time is different.

"The reaction time for a fighter is very important. You have the reaction time and the reset time. And this thing, when you add weight to yourself and you change weight class it changes, according to the weight class. So that's the problem.

"I want to make sure I've done everything I had to do in my division before I go up, because once I go up, I might for a little bit hold two titles at the same time, but as soon I'm going to go up and take care of business when I'm up, I'm going to let go of my other title."

This is pre GSP V Koshceck II interview with Joe Rogan. GSP needs to grow up.

He has no problem of talking about becoming the Michael Jordon or Tiger Woods of MMA. Or his movie, but a future fight with Anderson Silva - just reasons why he shouldn't fight him - 'Anderson weighs 230 lbs,' 'he fought 170 lbs a couple years ago.'

He could y'know face the guy who beat him (Okami), who also happens to have the skill set (wrestling) that Silva seems to be avoiding.

Did you even watch the fight? Okami deserves the title shot but not because of his "win" against silva.

I did, Okami gassed Anderson with take down attempts, got him to the ground and got caught in a blatant illegal shot.

And they were both fighting at 170.

I mean really Anderson looked good for 90 seconds in a fight 5 years ago and therefore he doesn't have to face a guy who's been a top ten MW for years.

Wow, comparing the Mayweather situation to this makes no sense. Mayweather kept going on and on about the fight and then made stipulations that Pacquiao didn't like. then when Pacquiao actually met the terms, Mayweather still wanted nothing to do with the fight.

None of that has happened in the GSP/Silva situation. Silva is much larger than GSP, therefor a catchweight is still favoring Silva seeing as when they rehydrate, Silva will have put on more weight than GSP. GSP said he would only go to MW if he was going to stay there as well.

I really don't see how GSP stating that he would fight Silva and isn't scared, but still staying in the weight class that he is champion of, is anything remotely close to being a *****.

The so called weight advantage is actually a legitimate weight advantage. GSP is already leaving a legacy behind by proving that he is the best welterweight fighter of all time and completely dominating the entire welterweight division.

The only reason BOTH Silva and Okami are benched for 8 month, more?-- is Zuffa WAITING for GSP to acknowledge anything. It's irresponsible. If he needs 6 months or something - ok, he can just say it let Silva V Okami happen.

Okami's is on stand-by for the Dana White 'if Silva and GSP each win their next fights, they'll fight each other.'

How is GSP scared? When has he ducked him, he still has his own weight class to clear, why don't some of you realize that. And, he said himself that if his moving up in weight his doing it properly to be at his full potential. Nothing wrong with that.
