Zahabi: If GSP Fights Silva It Will Likely Be His Last


“If he fights Hendricks, I think (GSP) could fight for longer. He could have more fights after that. If he fights Anderson Silva, I could really see that being his last fight. He’ll retire after that because there won’t be a bigger fight for him to do, I think, anymore in his career.”

“Win or lose, I think he’ll probably end on that note, on Anderson Silva. Maybe that’s why it’s been pushed back a little bit, but I think when it does happen, it’ll be the last one because once he goes up a weight class, he’s never coming back down.”

In an interview with Sherdog.com,Tri-Star head coach, Firas Zahabi says that if GSP takes the super fight with Anderson Silva it will likely be his last.

Thoughts?

    GSP VS SILVA is the best logical match out there talent & financially wise. it would benefit everyone involve, from trainer all the way up to the promoter, but i honestly wish it won’t happen, they are my top 2 favorite MMA LEGENDS. it would be very difficult on my part whom am i rooting.

  2. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    JONES VS SILVA is, by far, the biggest fight out there, bar none. NO OTHER FIGHT makes sense. Those 2 are very close in size. Period.

    • Jason says:

      Agreed.

    • Ray says:

      Amen

      Gsp is talented but gives up to much strength and skill in the silva fight. He couldnt stand with silva and would be painful to watch.

      I wonder if when jones and gsp train in their downtime is it for silva?

  3. Ddddddd says:

    He’ll retire after the biggest matchup because he’s not a guy that needs to fight. If he had tenacity and the desire to fight he’d be entertaining.

  4. 123 says:

    I guarantee if George St Pierre vs Anderson Silva & Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones dont happen in 2013 they will never happen.. The only superfight happening anytime soon is Jose Aldo vs Anthony Pettis.

  5. The natural says:

    It will def b his last and will have to retire after what Silvia does too him. SilviA will destroy gsp

  6. santa says:

    he doesn’t fight anymore anyway! he only holds!!
