Georges St-Pierre Discusses Drop To Lightweight

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre made a shocking revelation on The Joe Rogan Experience earlier this week.

While everyone has talked about GSP either moving up to middleweight, or facing Anderson Silva at a weight close to 170, St-Pierre tossed out the idea of himself moving down.

“I don’t do much cutting. It would be easier for me to go fight at 155 than fight at 185,” St-Pierre said. “I would be more at my weight. I’m not a big guy, I’m not thick.”

That could come as a welcoming to Benson Henderson, as the UFC lightweight champ previously mentioned wishing to meet St-Pierre.

In regards to his more immediate challenger, GSP said that Johny Hendricks is “probably” the next fight he takes.
