The past couple years of chatter about a potential Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre superfight in the UFC could come to a head at UFC 154 on Nov. 17 in Montreal.
While St-Pierre has hedged on whether or not he wants to step into a superfight with Silva, even if the Canadian defeats Carlos Condit at UFC 154, Silva and his camp have been actively campaigning for the fight.
Silva may take that campaign one step further should St-Pierre defend his UFC welterweight championship in November. Silva’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, told UFC Tonight that the middleweight champ will be sitting Octagonside and may have something to say come fight night.
Should St-Pierre win, Silva may force the Canadian’s hand on his home turf by doing something that Silva doesn’t often do, call him out.
Just attending the fight in the first place is something out of character for Silva. He doesn’t make it a habit of attending lots of UFC events, so the fact of him being there says volumes about his desire to make the fight with St-Pierre happen.
