UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva may be one of the greatest fighters MMA has ever seen and a consensus pick for pound-for-pound best, but he’s not as big a threat to beat Georges St-Pierre as Johny Hendricks is”¦at least in the opinion of Pat Miletich. St-Pierre is expected to face one of the two talented competitors in his next bout, whether in a title-defense against welterweight contender Hendricks or super-fight against "The Spider."

Miletich, a widely-respected trainer, recently turned heads by leaning towards Silva as being a less dangerous option for GSP than Hendricks based on the wrestling ability of each”¦

“If I'm Georges St. Pierre, to be honest with you, I'm probably going to lean towards fighting Anderson Silva. There's a hell of a lot more to gain obviously, but that might even, to be honest with you, be a safer fight for him.”

“[St. Pierre] may get a takedown, but he's not holding Hendricks down. I think Hendricks is obviously a good enough wrestler, a strong enough guy when he's coming back up. And Hendricks has some serious one-punch knockout power. When he hits people, he's sliding them across the ice.”
