The head of Black House and manager to Anderson Silva, Ed Soares, joined MMA Live last night and spoke on “The Spider’s” prospective super-fight with UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre. Soares intimated that Anderson Silva would prefer to meet GSP next and is willing to do so at a catchweight, if need be.
“People argue back and forth (about) who the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world is. Some people say it’s Anderson, some people say it’s Georges St-Pierre. So I think the way to settle would be, I don’t know, do a catch weight at 177 1/2, right down the middle, and see what happens,”
While St-Pierre has proven to be unwilling to move up and face Silva unless the move to middleweight is permanent, he has been more receptive to the bout of late, perhaps the suggestion of a catchweight might be the final push needed to make this long-discussed bout official.
