Georges St-Pierre Picks Chris Weidman Over Anderson Silva at UFC 162

UFC welterweight champion, George St-Pierre gave his predictions on the fight between middleweight champ, Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman, predicting “The Spider” will have his work cut out for him against Weidman.

St-Pierre, speaking via Inside MMA, said:

“I always want a challenge depending on weight classes. I know you talk about Anderson Silva, but the thing is, I weigh 190-pounds. I know Silva weighs 230-pounds. He’s a pretty big guy. Listen, if the opportunity and the timing is good, everything is possible. It would be either a jump or we would meet in the middle.”

“But don’t forget, I don’t want to sound bad, but Anderson has a big fight with Chris Weidman. Chris Weidman, I know him and believe me he’s the top guy Anderson Silva has ever faced. For me, Chris is my friend, and I believe he’s going to win.”
