Spider camp: GSP should stay at welterweight or feel the wrath of Anderson Silva

Silva-spar_medium

That's what Josuel Dlstak, one of Silva's many coaches, tells Tatame:

"Georges St. Pierre should stay in his division (laughs), because if he moves up he’d have much headache. St. Pierre is a strategic fighter. Besides being very dangerous, Anderson also is strategic, so he has two weapons. Anderson has an advantage over St. Pierre because of his reach and game, he has a more efficient Muay Thai and a tough ground game, Anderson will be prepared for him."

On April 30 in Toronto at UFC 129, all eyes will be on Georges St. Pierre as he attempts to successfully defend his welterweight title for what could be the final time against Jake Shields. It may be the last 170-pound fight for the French-Canadian, as company President Dana White has stated his intentions of putting together a superfight between "Rush" and Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, a bout that would be contested at 185-pounds. "The Spider's" camp however, doesn't think that's the brightest of ideas for "GSP," as they feel the Brazilian has the edge in nearly every aspect of the fight. Should St. Pierre heed the advice of Team Silva and continue his reign of terror in the welterweight division? Or should he go moving on up and prove them wrong?
