Georges St-Pierre tells trainer he wants to fight Anderson Silva next - Five Ounces of Pain : Five Ounces of Pain
Though the situation is still developing, leaving details scarce at best, St-Pierre’s chief trainer Firas Zahabi confirmed his fellow Canadian’s interest in a clash with Silva during a brief exchange with the Canadian Press.
“He told me yes. But I think there’s a lot to be negotiated. I don’t know much more than that,” said Zahabi.
As implied, a number of steps still need to be taken before a St-Pierre/Silva bout becomes reality including an agreed-upon weight. Silva’s camp has said he can dip down as low as 178 pounds, while St-Pierre’s side has stated any move up could be a permanent one and he would prefer things to take place at welterweight.
Regardless, Zahabi’s information marks the first major sign St-Pierre is leaning towards Silva rather than attempting to extend his streak of title-defenses by facing Johny Hendricks or Nick Diaz.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
