GSP Addresses Potential Fight With Silva

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Though middleweight champion Anderson Silva’s stock has taken a big hit, it’s hard to argue that a superfight with Georges St. Pierre wouldn’t be big business.

UFC president Dana White thought December might be a good time to do it, in Toronto no less, if the welterweight champ got past Thiago Alves in July.

In a recent appearance for UFC Fight Club fans prior to UFC 97, St. Pierre weighed the idea of a fight with “The Spider.”

“It would be interesting, but it depends on the outcome of my fight and his fight,” he said. “We’ll see.”

One fan broached the idea of making the two coaches of opposing teams on “The Ultimate Fighter,” leading to the super fight.

“I would have to sit down and see what the opportunity is,” he continued. “How long I have for the fight. Because if I fight at 185, if I do it, I want to do it well. I want to put some extra muscle on me, some extra weight. I would have to go on a I would have to go on a diet for a couple extra weeks, and it would take me some extra time, but I’m always excited for a new challenge.”
