"That's not what I said. What I said is it's a complete re-orientation of my career. People are saying crazy stuff, like "Oh, you just have to gain 30 pounds and take the fight and fight him in three months." I can't (gain) 30 pounds in three months. It would take a lot more than that. If I want to go up in weight class."

"Plus, (Anderson) Silva fights at light heavyweight as well. So he walks around at … he's probably 40 pounds heavier than I am (off season). So if I fight this fight, it might be at a catch weight. If it happens."

Delete please. Didn't realize it was already posted under a different title.

I really don't think too many people want to see Silva fight Okami. Okami's like Chael Sonnen but not as good. It's time for Silva to move to LHW if St. Pierre doesn't want to move up a weight class.

Have silva fight okami in summer and gsp in dec
Gives gsp more than 6 months to bulk up
And vacate title for summer welterweight champ

I would like to see it, I think that Sonnen is obviously a better wrestler than Okami, but Okami probably has better stand up, certainly better knees and kicks. Anderson would as always be a huge favorite, but Okami presents an interesting challenge. He will probably be a stiffer test than Vitor was.

I have also been waiting for this fight for a long time. Especially since the Chael loss, where Okami has looked incredible.

Imagine being able to say that you were 2-0 against the best UFC fighter of all time.

Sounds good to me,
Yushins standup is better than Chaels, but Chael outstruck Yushin. I dont think Yushins wrestling is as good as Chael , but it's mma anything could happen and Yushin is title worthy in my opinion.
Silva vs Okami makes sense just like
GSP vs Jake Shields makes sense
but I think GSP is thinking a superfight against Silva should be a cw 176 lbs fight, where Silva cuts mad weight, and Gsp doesnt have to leave WW.
unless Dana makes GSP move to 185
Vitor
Chael
Bisping
Maia/ Palhares
are the fights I wanna see GSP in besides fighting Silva
