While the spotlight is currently focused on UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre‘s every move – including his recent verbal warfare with UFC 158 opponent Nick Diaz – the champ is pretty good at deflecting that attention in other directions, notably towards his friend Chris Weidman.
St-Pierre, in a recent Sportsnet Canada, said, not only does he think Weidman will defeat middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 162, but that “it’s a bad match-up for Anderson Silva, very bad” and that Weidman will finish Silva.
