According To Freddie Roach, GSP Not Interested In Move From Welterweight

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre recently returned to full MMA training after receiving medical clearance.

St-Pierre is scheduled to face Carlos Condit to unify the UFC welterweight crown in November at UFC 154.

However, there seems to be growing interest from UFC executives and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in pairing “The Spider” with GSP down the road.

One man, Freddie Roach, informed Fight Hub TV recently that St-Pierre has told him he has no interest in changing weight classes.

Georges has told me he’s not comfortable changing weight. He likes the weight he’s fighting at and feels that’s where he’s at his best. I don’t think that fights really going to happen, as (Silva’s) too big for him.

St-Pierre (22-2) will be competing for the first time in over a year when he faces Condit in Montreal.
