"I think he's too big for Georges. Forrest Griffin is huge and at the (UFC 101) weigh-ins, when we squared them off, he was as big as Forrest at 205 (pounds). The guy is unbelievable.... [Feb. 2010] is a long layoff for [St. Pierre] and he's a big star for us. So we want to get him back in as soon as possible."
UFC President Dana White has put the kabosh (at least for now) on a potential "super fight" between middleweight deity Anderson Silva and welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre after "The Spider" clowned former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin earlier this month. His first order of business is to get St. Pierre -- who injured his ab-duck-tore ligga-ment in a five round decision win over Thiago Alves back in July -- healthy and back inside the Octagon sooner rather than later. It's likely that he'll face the winner of the match between Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann later this year or ine arly 2010. Silva, on the other hand, will likely defend his 185-pound title against either Dan Henderson or the winner of the UFC 102 bout between Demain Maia and Nate Marquardt at UFC 105 on Nov. 21. He also mentioned that former light heavyweight champion Randy Couture as a possible opponent in a 205-pound showdown, pending the outcome of Saturday night's main event.
