Silva’s Coach: “GSP should stay in his division, because if he moves up he’d have much headache”

Josuel Distak, the Muay Thai coach of UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva has dismissed the notion that 170 pound champ, Georges St-Pierre will be any match for the Brazilian, adding he should stay in his own weight class rather than suffering a major headache.

Distak, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“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”.
