The pound-for-pound king and middleweight champion Anderson Silva is in attendance for UFC 154 in Canada tonight. Before the show Silva talked to the media and of course was asked about the possible fight with Georges St-Pierre, should GSP defeat Condit tonight. Silva said he would fight GSP, but more interesting was that he said he would also be up for a fight with the light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones if that were what the UFC wanted.

Silva seemed clear that he thinks GSP will beat Carlos Condit and that would set up the super fight between what most people think are the #1 and #2 pound for pound best fighters in MMA today. There has been many different opinions amongst the MMA fans and media about which super fight was more intriguing, Silva vs. GSP or Silva vs. Jones. Well it looks like maybe we can all get our wish and get both fights in the future. For now it seems Silva is focused on the possibilities of a GSP fight when he spoke with the media before UFC 154 tonight.

“My first goal is the Georges St-Pierre fight, the super fight,” he said. “The second goal? Maybe Jon Jones. But this is not my decision. This is Dana [White's] decision.”

The interesting thing about even being open to fighting Jon Jones now is the fact that Silva and Jones both recently said they didn’t have any interest in fighting each other. They both have a lot of respect for each other but maybe with Jon Jones saying recently that he didn’t want to fight Silva because he didn’t want to be the one who beat him has something to do with Silva changing his mind. For now though, we wait to see if everything falls into place. The thing we know is if Silva fights GSP next or Jon Jones, it will be the biggest PPV the UFC will ever put on and will be a treat for us fans of MMA. Phone Post

He seems to be stuttering a lot when asked about this fight.

It seems to me that if he really wants challenging fights that he should be excited to the fight against Silva.

Alas, this is simply not the case.

Riiiiight... the smaller guy is the chicken, the who is being challenged by the giant who is doing everything he can to avoid fighting someone his size...

You think facing a murdered's row of welterweights are not challenging fights? Talk about a keyboard warrior. If Silva comes down to 170, GSP will fight him straight away.

look this fight would be historic, and he is avoiding it because of 8 pounds (178). Sorry I'm not buying it.

Either he wants to test himself against Silva, or he doesn't but either way it doesn't matter with fans like you guys.

well, it makes sense. if he beats the bigger champ first then the GSP fight loses money making potential.

Fighting GSP first makes good money...and sets the Jones fight up as his final legacy and fair fight.

Personally my desire to see GSP vs Anderson (dont get me wrong, i'd still watch it) has waned over the past couple years and even more last weekend. While I think GSP for the most part just looked rusty against Condit I think GSP gets murdered by Anderson and I dont think it'll be all that competitive. Thats the only reason I wouldnt wanna see that fight. Just dont think it would be as competitive as I once thought it would and I'd rather see Anderson call out and fight Jon Jones. Yea Jones is bigger but I feel that fight would be much more competitive than GSP/Anderson and I think GSP would even be the favorite.

That said, if Anderson really plans on or is at least ok with fighting GSP then Jones, then I'm all for both fights. But if I had to pick one or the other, its Anderson vs Jones.

I'm a fan of all three of those figthers and just want the best, most competitive fights to happen.

It's literally the only left for Silva to do. Take out the only two other fighters in the p4p discussion, then retire as the undisputed best of all time.
