Whod have a problem would be GSP, because Anderson can lose that weight easily and, at the day of the fight, hed be on his usual weight, so I believe its complicated for Georges St. Pierre"

Anderson Silva's manager tells Brazilian media Tatame.com that they are more than willing to fight GSP at a catchweight more in the realm of GSP's weightclass. Since it seems that everyone is dead set on this fight happening except GSP due to weighty issues, the offer to fight below middleweight surely would make this bout impossible to turn down for the welterweight champ.
I'm not surprised by this. Anderson used to be a WW & there were rumors that Matt would fight him as one of his first title defenses back in '02.
