GSP Says Move To Lightweight More Ideal Than Middleweight
“I don’t do much cutting. It would be easier for me to go fight at 155 than fighting at 185. I would be more at my weight naturally at 155. There’s guys at 155 that walk around at 190 like me. They think I’m big because I have a large frame, but I’m not a big guy. I’m not thick. Anderson Silva is very big. He’s 230 pounds. He’s a very big guy walking around, and I’m 190 pounds. It’s a lot of weight difference. If this fight happens one day, we’re going to have to decide what weight class and everything. If he can make 170, he can weigh 170, I can weigh 170, and everything is fine. We’ll see. Anderson is fighting Weidman. Hendricks is freaking out. He wants to fight me. We’ll see what’s going to happen in the future – probably Hendricks.”
Out of nowhere GSP drops a bomb that moving down a division instead of up will probably be easier for him.
