12:15 PM ET 11.29 | Anderson Silva's strength and conditioning coach Rogerio Camoes didn't mince words when he was asked if Silva could drop down to 170 pounds to fight Georges St-Pierre in a superfight. "It would be a crime for Anderson to fight at 170," Camoes said. "He could make the weight, but the physical loss would be too great. We have to respect GSP, who, besides being a great fighter, is a monster physically. The Canadian would have a considerable physical advantage if they fought at welterweight."

Neither guy wants to move weight classes. Superfights are not fair unless a guy can have an easy weight cut/gain, which none of these guys can do
