St. Pierre 100% Down to Fight Silva at 170 Pounds

Zahabi: GSP Would Fight Silva at 170 Pounds

“If Anderson came down to 170 pounds, we’d say yes, 100 per cent, certainly,” Zahabi said. “But if we’re asking Georges to fight in a higher weight category, it’s another story.”

Zahabi differentiated the scenario with one nearly four years ago, when then-lightweight champion B.J. Penn moved up to St-Pierre’s weight class to challenge for his welterweight belt at UFC 94 (St-Pierre defeated Penn, also a former UFC 170-pound title-holder, by corner stoppage after the fourth round.)
