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."

Rather see Jones/Anderson.

I don't see GSP beating Anderson.

I know he was poked in the eye, but if the GSP that fought against Shields shows up to this fight with the sloppy overhand rights, he will get lit up. It wont even be close. Mind you it is hard to guage as Shields is a very awkward striker and Anderson isnt, but I cant see a single punch hurting Anderson either.

That or f00bs who weren't even around when the hype/trash talking between the fans started. I don't see Jones/Anderson happening for at least 8 months, so this fight is the next best one for Andy imho.

Jones/Silva seems unreachable for the time being. At least until after TUF filming and the finale. Then they have to make sure Bones is healthy after that fight in late April. Realistic that it couldn't happen until late 2013.

 

Why would you NOT want this fight in the mean time?

 

Do you honestly think anyone at MW stands a better chance against Andy then GSP does at a catch weight? I don't.

Probably no one. Let's see what Saturday brings. Dana seems to only be talking about this fight IF GSP wins.

There is only ONE superfight to make at this point, and that is GSP/Silva......Silva/Jones on the other hand is a....megafight!!........also...why are ppl calling for JDS/Jones do soon? There is absolutely no way that's a winnable fight for Jon Jones right now. A few years from now then that's a different story, when he's got a few more miles on him. Phone Post

I'm not expecting a Condit win.  Any time Dana tries to plan/hope for something, it blows up (like Brock on TUF then fighting JDS or Overeem vs. JDS).

How do you guys not see Dana's logic here? Anderson is the key in these two superfights as he's the only one that can fight both fighters.

Why have one superfight when you can have two? I firmly believe that if he fights and beats GSP, that'll set up a Jones-Silva fight with even more buzz than it would have had Anderson not fought GSP.

Having said that I do kind of agree that it is a bully fight, Anderson just dwarfs GSP. If GSP was the same size as Anderson I think this would be an extremely competitive fight and I might actually give the edge to Georges, but the size discrepancy is way too much. Anderson beats GSP 8/10 times.
