Georges St-Pierre recently said he could make 155 pounds, if needed, and BJ Penn has challenged the former welterweight champ to a bout at that weight.
On a recent edition of “The MMA Hour“, St-Pierre relayed that he wouldn’t have any difficulties cutting to lightweight, if needed. Well, recently Penn sent GSP the following challenge via Twitter.
Hey @GeorgesStPierre if you can make 155 easily, I'm free in November and would love the opportunity to fight you at 155 pounds in New York.
