Current UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, who scored a stunning second-round TKO of longtime former champ Matt Hughes at UFC 65, would be willing to fight for the middleweight (185-pound) and even light heavyweight (205-pound) titles, according to a recent interview at MMANews.com. The Canadian, who recently inked a new six-fight deal with the UFC, says he’d be willing to move up in weight classes to satisfy his competitive desires if he’s in the need for competition. Honestly, I think St. Pierre is going to have plenty of top-notch competition coming his way in the next couple of years. Diego Sanchez, Josh Koscheck, Karo Parisyan, and of course, Matt Hughes are all championship-caliber opponents who could be deserving of a title shot this year. St. Pierre also has an upcoming bout with The Ultimate Fighter season four welterweight winner Matt Serra that he must first deal with. However, despite the number of worthy opponents, I just don’t see St. Pierre losing his belt anytime soon. But the mere mention that he’s willing to jump weight classes instantly makes those divisions all the more interesting and competitive. Could you imagine the magnitude of a St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva or St. Pierre vs. Chuck Liddell main event? Good God. Anyway, you’d be wise not to read too much into the comments. Although St. Pierre has “manned up” and proven he’ll fight anyone the UFC throws at him — and he’s proven he wants a challenge — I doubt the welterweight division will be lacking talent anytime soon. In any manner, check out the interview at MMANews.com. I’ve listened to bits and pieces of it as time allows today. Other topics they discuss are St. Pierre’s thoughts on Travis Lutter not making weight at UFC 67, his thoughts on friend Davis Loiseau getting booted from the UFC, the upcoming Diego Sanchez vs. Josh Koscheck bout and more.
