Is Georges St Pierre vs Benson Henderson a super fight that fans would be willing to see? Dana White and the Zuffa brass are trying everything in their power finally make these super mega fights and to help prove who is truly the best fighter on the planet.
We all expected that we would finally see GSP fighting against Anderson Silva. It’s a super fight that fans have been dreaming of. Unfortunately it looks like its a fight that GSP has no interest in. He stated he has a better chance of dropping down to 155 then going up to competing against the middleweight champion.
That leaves the question. Would St. Pierre take the chance of going against lightweight champion Benson Henderson? Benson has been a more controversial champion, to say the least. Everyone of his bouts are extremely competitive and a fight with GSP would be no different.
Benson should be competing at welterweight. It’s amazing how much weight he’s really to cut to get down to lightweight.
They both have work to do before a potential fight can be made official. GSP has Johny Hendricks on deck and Henderson still has a whole division that he needs to clear up. If Benson can clear out the division, then this fight make sense for both of their careers.
