White sees GSP vs. Silva superfight in May

source: mmajunkie

UFC Middleweight Anderson Silva recently said he does not want to fight until late in 2013. In a recent interview on ESPN's Sports Center, UFC President Dana White believes Silva will have a superfight with UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre (if GSP beats Carlos Condit Saturday night), well before then.

"Anderson Silva will be there this Saturday watching, and if (St-Pierre) wins it'll be a huge fight for us," said White. "It'll probably be the biggest fight in UFC history. It'll definitely be the biggest gate. We've done (55,000) up in Toronto with Georges before. We've had big gates pretty much everywhere we've gone, but this one would be either a soccer stadium down in Brazil, Dallas' Texas Stadium, or we'd do Toronto again."

White said if GSP wins, he expected Silva would enter the Octagon and challenge the Canadian, but Silva said he wouldn't. "It is not my character to step in there and call somebody out," said Silva. "So I think this won’t happen. I fact I don’t just think, I am sure!”

White was not so sure, and he even named a month for the superfight.

"He said he wouldn't fight Chael Sonnen again either, but he did," White said. "He always comes out and says this stuff. I don't know why he does it or why he says the things he says. I guarantee you, he will be there Saturday. If Georges St-Pierre wins, those two will fight and it'll probably be in May."

It's all up to the UFC brass, not like the fighters have a choice. You are focusing on the pro wrestling aspect of it with "call outs", which are all set up. You act like Silva has a choice whether or not he enters the cage after gsp/condit. GSP vs. Silva, then Silva vs. Jones. Why not both?

All the noobs get dose of reality and Dana gets rich. This was a mismatch from day 1. Any knowledgeable fan of the sport knows this is not an intriguing match up.

What happened is that Jones came into the picture, while Anderson himself has since fought at 205 THREE times, looking just as big as Forrest and Bonnar in the processHow would Gsp look standing next to Forrest or Bonnar? LOLBut you are a are a brainwashed zuffa zombie Boilwrbrawnbeatdown so I wouldn't expect you to be reasonable or use common sense
