At the UFC 154 post fight press conference, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre skirted the issue of a superfight with Anderson Silva, saying he needed time off.
UFC president Dana White agreed, telling the media that he would giving GSP at least 10 days to decompress and not think about anything fight related.
After St-Pierre left the presser, White told the media that the date for the potential fight was still sometime in May, that Toronto, Dallas and Brazil were still being considered, and that Dallas seemed to make the most sense, “because it’s neutral.”
“That’s why we’re going there," said White. "I hope I sell a 100,000 (tickets)."
“I want Anderson Silva to love this fight and want it. I want Georges to love this fight and want it. Becasue they’re both gonna make a s---load of money, that’s a no-brainer. I want them to want it for the right reasons. This is more of a legacy fight. This is the pound-for-pound fight.”
