Silva Camp Ready to Move On: GSP Showing No Interest in Super Fight | UFC News

The super fight between the dubbed GOATs (Greatest of All Time) George St. Pierre and Anderson Silva may take a while.  Ariel Helwani reported on Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight that Silva’s manager doesn’t believe GSP want to fight right now.  Helwani states….

“We have heard a lot from GSP.  He said he wants this fight to happen on his terms.  He may not be ready for it just yet.

But I spoke to Anderson Silva’s manager last night, and he told me that he truly doesn’t believe that GSP wants this fight next and therefore he doesn’t believe this fight will happen.”

GSP has been outspoken about his belief that Anderson Silva is much bigger than him and would prefer to fight in his weight class of 170 lbs.

    Silva vs. Jones! Make it happen!

  2. BJJJB says:

    Why would GSP want to fight Anderson Silva, i just don’t see him being victorious. His wrestling is world-class but his chin is not.

    Fighting Anderson Silva with a weak chin.. You’re gonna have a bad time

  3. Bill says:

    Silva is way to big for GSP. GSP is small for his weight division, so the chances of him steeping up to 85s is pretty slim

    • Trent says:

      Bill, that makes no sense! Gsp is not small for his weight division, how the hell do you think that? He walks around at least at 185 pounds. He is strong and athletic. If he was indeed small for his weight class Bill, the talks of a super fight between him and Edgar or Benson would have already started. GSP will not fight silva cuz he knows he will lose, and not because of the weight. Blame it on the weight all you want, cuz you know GSP will. Fighters that talk about being to small in their weight class are so annoying, when is the last time you’ve heard a real legend, like BJ Penn complain about being undersized? THat dude fought Lyoto Machida when he was a heavyweight. He also is moving up to fight a MUCH bigger Rory Mcdonald. Rory’s size advantage to BJ is substantially bigger than Silvas would be to GSP.

      • Kyle says:

        I agree wholeheartedly, the spirit of a fight is exploiting your opponents weaknesses. That being said Silva fighting upweight against Bonnar and Sonnen were not exactly comparable to GSP bridging the weight gap. Anyways, any body remember BJ Penn beating Matt Hughes, after 8 consecutive title defenses…up a weight class! It can be done!

  4. Josh says:

    If GSP is humble and loyal to the fans
    He wouldn’t be asking $50 million to fight silva
    And it would be a catch weight at 180
    He’s scared of Anderson

  5. Trent says:

    Hey Bill. Please tell me how GSP is small for his weight class? That makes no sense to me seeing as he walks around at least 185 pounds. Sure, there have been bigger welterweights, people like anthony johnson who have no business in the weight class. But GSP is not a small welterweight. Hes big and strong, and if he was indeed a “small” welterweight, then the talks of a superfight between GSP and Edgar or BEnson would have already started.
    GSP is fairly good size for his weight class, and is naturally stronger than most. He is scared to death of Silva cuz he knows he will lose. Blame it on the weight all you want, God knows GSP will.
    I’m so sick of hearing fighters talk about weight being to small to fight someone when they are only one weight class away from each other. When’s the last time you’ve heard real legends like BJ Penn complain that he is too small? That man has fought Lyoto Machida when he was a heavyweight. So the whole GSP is too small for Silva thing is bullshit. Anyone who disagrees please, I’d like to hear why you do.

  6. Kahai says:

    Scared…why he will never be the true pound for pound. Anderson, BJ both went up and down in weight to fight the bigger man but GSP is a coward!

  7. mike says:

    Forget Silva being way bigger, he’s way BETTER!

  8. Shane Mead (@Shaneoo88) says:

    Anderson should drop down and take his damn belt.

  9. adrian says:

    what shane mead said. gsp is a fucken scared. greatest of all time my ass. lay and pray greasing mf. scared to even meet in the middle. LOOOOOOZAH. spider should just drop down and get an automatic title fight. gsp’s 5’10. phil baroni’s 5’9 and fought at 185 shredded. theres no way anyone can tell me gsp can’t atleast meet in the middle if not even fight at welterweight. go rub some vass on your nipples and jag to your rory macdonald poster you fucken pussy.

  10. Jack Dempsey says:

    GSP looks now at Silva the same as he looked at Hughes when he fought him for the title when he was young. He’s got zero faith that he’s gonna win that fight. Self confidence out the window. It doesn’t even matter if he can or can’t “hang” with Anderson….he doesn’t think he can. He’s more worried about losing than ever before. Too many big name sponsorships and $$$ on the line.

  11. Al says:

    Gsp has good reas

  12. salem says:

    f*ck u gsp. You are scared

  13. Go GSP says:

    Who cares, its so blatant Anderson would win I don’t even see the point in that fight, may aswell let Bisping get his title shot ( and I love Bisping but come on noones getting that title till Silva says okay I’m done )

    Suffice to say it can’t be said that GSP has his weight class locked down like Silva or Jones after his extended hiatus, IMO he has to defeat the new wave of contenders before he looks at superfights because frankly it looks like Hendricks has the tools to pull off an outrageous upset

  14. Oh and says:

    How foolish can you be, calling a cage fighter a coward. It’s just ridiculous.
