    GSP to Middleweight?

    - GSP TALKS WIN AND POSSIBLE MOVE TO MIDDLEWEIGHT
    Monday, April 21, 2008 - by Jeff Cain - MMAWeekly.com

    Georges "Rush" St. Pierre won back the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight title in front of 21,390 spectators at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday night when he defeated Matt "The Terror" Serra by TKO. Fighting and winning in front of his hometown crowd meant a lot to the 26-year-old Canadian. "It was the most beautiful day of my life," St. Pierre told MMAWeekly. "I can't describe it."
    Those live in attendance were so loud that St. Pierre couldn't hear his corner-men. Admitting that he had butterflies in his stomach before the fight, St. Pierre rose to the occasion despite the added pressure of performing in the first UFC main event in Canada. "A world title in my backyard. It's amazing," said St. Pierre.
    There was no love loss between St. Pierre and Serra heading into UFC 83. Both took verbal jabs at each other in the media leading up to the rematch. Commenting on the animosity between the two and if he carried it into the octagon with him, St. Pierre said, "Going into the cage I let it go, but at some point in the fight I used it to pump me up at the end with the flurry of knees."
    UFC president Dana White has stated that Jon Fitch is likely next in line for a shot at the UFC welterweight title. St. Pierre predicted victory if Fitch is his next opponent and added, "I will fight everybody the UFC puts in front of me."
    Mentioned in the UFC 83 post-fight press conference by White and the media, there's a possibility of St. Pierre moving up to the middleweight division, but St. Pierre stipulated that it would have to be a "super fight" situation.
    Asked if he'd consider moving up to take on UFC middleweight champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva, St. Pierre responded, "Maybe. Who knows? We'll see. We'll talk about it. Maybe. It might be interesting. We'll see."

    I think Jon Fitch should get a shot before GSP goes on to middle. He deserves it.

    What does he mean when he says, "super fight situation" ?

    Seconded.

    Fighting Silva is a lot to ask him as cool as it would be.

    I predict very bad things for GSP if he goes up. His worked hard to get this title, he needs to defend it.

    Unfortunately he seems like the reasonable choice.
    Which sucks, like Fitch.

    Dana will probably pressure him to move up in weight. There are really only two true contenders left for GSP at WW. Jon Fights and Thiago Alves. I see him beating both of them.
    If he moves up in weight and fights Silva he has the chance of becoming the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles the same time, this fight would be absolutely huge.

    GSP would be outsized for the first time in his UFC career against Silva though so he wont be able to bully him around like he did to Serra. His only chance would be taking Silva down and stalling his way to a decision win like he did against BJ. Silva would probably catch him sooner or later though with one of his knees and knock his ass out. I also think GSP would lose to fighters like Franklin and Okami.
