Georges St-Pierre Thinks Chris Weidman Will Beat Anderson Silva

We’re only five days away from one of the most anticipated UFC Pay-Per-View events in recent history, as Georges St-Pierre will defend his UFC Welterweight Championship against Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 158 Saturday night in Montreal. And as we’ve already discussed, these two gentlemen do not care for each other one bit, as St-Pierre believes that Diaz is disrespectful, while Diaz believes that St-Pierre is a spoiled, pampered brat MOTHER F*CKER I’M A MAN DON’T TALK SH*T TO ME I DON’T DESERVE TO BE BEAT DOWN A SOCCER MOM TALKED SH*T TO ME!

Sorry, I was momentarily possessed by the ghost of Nick Diaz’s phone conference. Anyway, St-Pierre is so focused on this fight that he took the opportunity to talk about someone else’s main event championship match at UFC 162, specifically Chris Weidman’s big shot at Anderson Silva.

“I believe it’s not gonna be too long that fight,” St-Pierre told Sportsnet in Canada. “This, to people, will be shocking.”

But St-Pierre believes the 28-year-old Weidman, his friend and sometimes training partner, has the Brazilian’s number.

“I believe he’s a bad matchup for Anderson Silva,” St-Pierre said. “Very bad.”

“Anderson Silva is smart because Chris Weidman is coming back from an injury,” St-Pierre said. … “This is gonna be the best time to fight Chris Weidman right now.” (Via the N.Y. Post)

Good old diabolical Georges St-Pierre. If Weidman defeats Silva on July 6 in Las Vegas, then GSP is right and can boast that his good friend was simply the better man and he knew it. Or if Silva wins, GSP can again just point out that Weidman was coming off a torn labrum and he wasn’t ready enough. Either way, GSP is setting us up for his eventual “superfight” with Silva, and I hope that there’s more where that came from.

In the meantime, Diaz doesn’t have time for no jibber jabber, and he’s sending a silent message to GSP, this time in the form of a 23-minute video of his speedbag workout. You know, in case you’re incredibly bored.
