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.

This comes from yesterday’s Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

    I’d like to see GSP vs Benson Henderson for the lightweight title. Or a rematch of GSP vs an in shape BJ Penn at lightweight, if he’s up for it of course.

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      I’d like to see a fight with Hendo, I think GSP would dominate. I wouldn’t like to see a rematch with BJ though, for BJ’s sake…

      • brandon says:

        I guess you are wanting to see bj get destroyed again. I bet he would quit even quicker this timee, maybe after rnd 2. I wonder what kind of weak excuses he would come up with this time.

        • Fuck you Brandon. Imua! says:

          BJ didn’t quit. His brother, knowing BJ wouldn’t give up until death, decided to throw in the towel. GSP would lose alot of strength moving to 155, giving an advantage to BJ. You can call me biased, but shit, I’m man enough to admit it. And don’t say it’ll be another Edgar BJ fight because Edgar threw hell of alot more strikes than “Grease S P”. Fuckin dumbass Mahu

        • Jhonny Blaze says:

          @Brandon.Gsp is the quitter you moron.He tapped to strikes.When Serra was bouncing Georges head off the canvas he tapped.

    • 757 says:

      He would big brother Bendo period.

  2. Part Time MMA fan says:

    Why is this guy running from Hendricks?

  3. Broman says:

    I could see Anthony Pettis finishing GSP if he wanted to move down to lightweight.

    • 757 says:

      Pettis can’t beat a pure wrestler. Btw Guida smoked his ass by wrestling him. Like it or not he got dominated by him. GSP would easily dominate Pettis

  4. Slim Carles says:

    am I the only here who is doubting that GSP can make 155?

  5. D rak says:

    I hope gsp fights Hendricks next just to shut people up. Gsp will completely crush him

  6. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    I thought he had a hard time makiing 70!!! He does make a good point though, Silva is more of a lhw than he is a mw. Of course, Silva is too afraid to fight Jones. It’s the only superfight that makes sense.

    • wally says:

      You are an idiot. Jones has said before in the past that he didn’t want to fight Silva he would rather train under him. Silva would fight anyone anytime.

    • Slim Charles says:

      GSP makes 70 easily; he’s one of the few fighters that cut very little weight.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        I didn’t realize that. I thought it was a tough cut. I would love to see him at 55. He would be champ. I’ve never understood all the hate on this site for GSP. He’s the P4P king, GOAT of all time. BUT, he needs to be a 2 division champ to be at the top.

        • GOT RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          GSP is more boring than jon lay n pray Fitch. GSP isn’t even anywhere close to being in the league of Jones or A. Silva. Goerges “SAFE” Pierre will always be remembered for being boring as hell and being KO’d by a 5’4″ LIGHTWEIGHT named Matt Serra where GSP tapped to strikes like a bitch

        • brandon says:

          I totally agree with you. The reason most people on this site hate gsp is simply because they are still bitter about him smashing loser j penn so bad.

      • GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

        All you are idiots. Fricken GSP missed weight against Diaz. GSP walks around at 200 lbs and walks into cage at fight time at 195lbs+. This is typical GSP being a coward and trying to get out of fights he knows he will get his a’ss kicked. Half GSP opponents have been lightweights anyway throughout his career. GSP couldn’t make 155 without having to cut a leg off. My money is on Hendricks KO ing goerges SAFE Pierre who hasn’t had a TKO/Ko in over 5 years. GSP doesn’t want anything o do with the “NEW BREED” of REALFIGHTERS like Hendrcks, Ellenberger, ROIDY McDonald. You guys are a bunch of GSP NUT sucking faggots. GSP is a coward

  7. Ddddddd says:

    That’s crazy. I think that’d be a great fight and a good way to end the conspiracys that surround him making weight. Did I say that’s crazy.

  8. A. Chung says:

    Without PED’s GSP MIGHT make 155.

  9. K2 says:

    All I heard was “I’d rather fight guys twice as small as me so I can really LnP.”

  10. The Way Of The Dutchman says:


    He apparently forgot they bend the rules for him in Montreal just so he could come in overweight?
