After watching Georges St Pierre DOMINATE Matt Hughes and hearing that he thought about trying to make the Canadian Olympic wrestling team I’m wondering whether he might be able to beat Travis at 82kg. Travis already qualified the weight and won the trials so it’s basically moot at this point but still.
With any normal human with little competitive experience in wrestling I’d say not a chance, but GSP is some kind of superhuman freak. He took Hughes down four times??? On the other hand he would be giving up some weight to Travis, maybe 20 pounds… and Travis is a tough dude as I have firsthand experience from my days at SFU although he got real good a bit later than my time.
GSP could try at 74kg but then he’d have to beat Matt Gentry who is an NCAA champ, I’d have to go with Gentry at 74.
I don’t know, I’d love to see whether GSP could take Travis.
