Cesar Gracie: “Anderson (Silva) Is Way Too Big” For Georges St-Pierre

Trainer Cesar Gracie doesn’t believe Georges St-Pierre would have much of a chance if he accepts a super-fight with Anderson Silva. Gracie, who works with the likes of Nick and Nate Diaz, Jake Shields and Gilbert Melendez, told Middle Easy of why he feels “The Spider” would be too much for “Rush.”

“I think Anderson is way too big, length-wise and everything for Georges St-Pierre,” Gracie said. “I don’t see (GSP) doing very good in that fight at all, I can see him getting really hurt actually and he’s been getting kinda beat up in every fight a bit.”

Gracie would likely prefer Nick Diaz as the next opponent for St-Pierre, as the two have had a pair of bouts previously scheduled get cancelled. Diaz is suspended until early in 2013 due to a failed post-fight drug test.

“(St-Pierre’s) been a good champion and everything, but I don’t think it’s a good career move,” Gracie said. “That’s up to them, it’s none of my business, but if they have it, I’ll definitely watch it.”
