With Georges St. Pierre victorious and BJ Penn mulling retirement (which is funny, since Penn had called GSP a quitter), most MMA geeks attention has moved on to the next potential megafight…GSP vs. Anderson Silva. Fans want to know who is the pound for pound best, and top of that list is UFC President and my personal hero Dana White.
He just doesn’t want to see it right now. Thiago Alves is next for St. Pierre. But White did weigh in on who he thinks is the best…
“I still wouldn’t call (St. Pierre) pound-for pound the best in the world. But I would say, yea, he’s No. 2. No doubt about it. Anderson Silva has been annihilating everybody for a long time. Georges has some work to do now. If Georges takes out Thiago Alves, he’s on his way. The pound-for-pound to me, I would say Georges St. Pierre would be neck-and-neck with Anderson had he not lost to Matt Serra.”
I have to defer to Mr. President here. Silva has annihilated everyone in his path, and while GSP got revenge against Serra (and twice against Matt Hughes, his other loss), they’re still there.
I would assume the fight would be at 185. I can’t imagine Silva being able to cut weight for a catch weight, and I believe GSP walks around at 190 or so. My guess? Georges St. Pierre gets past Alves and Anderson Silva beats whoever his next victim is, and we get our megafight in December.
Pick a winner? I had a hard enough time choosing between GSP and BJ. 🙂
