Manager: Anderson Silva Wouldn't Have a Problem Fighting GSP at a Catcweight

It has been said that two of the top pound-for-pound fighters, Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre might be headed for a collision course if the latter gets past Jake Shields on UFC 129. GSP has been a bit hesitant to bulk up and make the jump to middleweight, and our own Jonathan Snowden has even made the case that St. Pierre shouldn't risk his health and legacy by taking on a guy who severely outweighs him.

St. Pierre has also said in the past that if he makes the jump to 185, he will do it right and pack on the pounds, making his drop back down to welterweight almost impossible. It may not be wise for him to jump 15 pounds out of his natural weight class, but what if both men compromised at a catchweight?

While some people think that Silva, who has fought at light heavyweight before, might be too drained out to fight below 185, his manager, Jorge Guimaraes says that wouldn't be a problem at all:

"Anderson has proven he’s the best fighter and he handles it quite good. It’s a complicated fight to GSP… It’s a pretty bad fight for him. Anderson has this biotype, he loses weight easily, he can make any weight, so I believe a catchweight division would be perfect for GSP, and Anderson wouldn’t have problems with that. Who’d have a problem would be GSP, because Anderson can lose that weight easily and, at the day of the fight, he’d be on his usual weight, so I believe it’s complicated for Georges St. Pierre".

Hmmm, maybe Andersons manager really wants whats best for GSP and his health...oooooor maybe he's just afraid Anderson would lose his title if fight happens at 185.

I believe three out of his four loses were to WW's (Okami, Chonan, and Azeredo) so it's funny that the article claims him as a temp LHW.

Anderson proves again why he is GOAT. He is willing to be anorexic to fight GSP, GSP is a *****, nothing else to be said.

A guy who weighs more than 185 shouldn't be demanding a catchweight lower than it.

Yeah that's exactly how it works...

Still not fussed on this fight but if it happens, cool.

All you people immediately calling GSP a p*ssy... Have you considered that maybe Silva simply doesn't want to put his belt on the line? You really believe he's offering this just to temp GSP?

145 Jose Aldo
155 Melvin Guillard
170 Carlos Condit
185 Anderson Silva
