Default Anderson on GSP catchweight

http://www.bjpenn.com/profiles/blogs...-will-meet-gsp

"Anderson has proven he’s the best fighter and he handles it quite good. It’s a complicated fight to GSP… It’s a pretty bad fight for him, Anderson has this body type, he loses weight easily, he can make any weight, so I believe a catchweight division would be perfect for GSP, and Anderson wouldn’t have problems with that. Who’d have a problem would be GSP, because Anderson can lose that weight easily and, at the day of the fight, he’d be on his usual weight, so I believe it’s 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.

Maybe AS should go on down to WW for the fight then? Hold 2 titles at once?

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.

Silva's such a gamer. Sometimes his fights are annoying, but he's been pretty exciting in his most recent ones. Now if this will just come to Dallas...

I bet GSP walks around at 185 or better! Seems to me like a 176-180 catch would we good.

A catch weight fight would also be good because neither of them would have to put up their belt. Would be nice to make it 5 rounds though.
