Georges St-Pierre is perhaps the most dominant welterweight champion in the history of the UFC and Anderson Silva is without question the most dominant middleweight champion. A super fight between the two has been teased for a year or so and would be a huge PPV fight for the UFC, however, according to UFC President Dana White, at least one party is uninterested in the bout:
"I've been working hard to try to make those fights," White said. "Georges St-Pierre would not even think about this fight because Anderson Silva's going to (lose), according to Georges St-Pierre."
"At the end of the day, he weighs 170 pounds," White said. "Any guy who's going to fight up in weight – 'I'm the man here at 170. If I thought I was the man at 185, I'd be at 185.' I get it. But it's a fight a lot of fans want to see, it's a big fight. It's a legacy fight, and it's a fight for the pound-for-pound best in the world.
"Georges St-Pierre could do this catchweight fight and he could still be the champ at 170. But what's crazy to me is, GSP opted to take a very dangerous fight (against Hendricks) at 170 without trying to take a dangerous fight at 185."
