White: ‘Anderson Silva says he can make 170 easy’

Georges St-Pierre may be debating the notion of moving up in weight to meet Anderson Silva in a ‘super-fight’, either at 185 or more likely at a catch-weight, but it seems his proposed opponent may be willing to accommodate. During a recent scrum with UFC President Dana White, the usual topic of Silva vs. GSP arose, to which White responded by saying that Silva is now open to moving down in weight.

“Anderson would go to [170 pounds], too,” White told media members following a conference in England last Wednesday (Feb. 13, 2013). “Yeah, he said he’d do it. He says he can make [170] easy. It’s insane.”

It’s been seven years since Silva has taken a fight at 170, yet at the age of 37 he is willing to cut the weight. Interestingly, Silva was seen last fighting at 205 against Stephan Bonnar in Oct. 2012. With yet another road block opened up, the super-fight of Silva vs. GSP looks to be a probable fight, should St-Pierre get past Nick Diaz on March 16th at UFC 158.
