Anderson Silva, who is rumored to be part of a Georges St. Pierre "super fight" in 2013, won't be heading to UFC 154 to call out "Rush," who must first defeat Carlos Condit on Saturday night in Montreal. He's simply there on vacation (cue the laugh track).

Grab your fishing gear and hip-waders, Maniacs, 'cuz Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is trolling the fight week waters.

"The Spider," who UFC President Dana White claims is heading to Montreal to call out Georges St. Pierre if "Rush" can successfully defend his title against Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 154 on Saturday night (Nov. 17, 2012) at the Bell Centre, insists he's only there for vacation.

And tells he's not in the business of issuing challenges:

"I'm on vacation for the fight. I think we just come back at the end of next year ... I'm going to Los Angeles and then going to Canada for the fight of St. Pierre. I'm already going to be there to shoot a movie, a feature film that I'll participate in with Lyoto (Machida). It's not my character to up and challenge anyone. I think it will not happen. I think not, I'm sure (laughs)."

Duplicity FTW.

Silva has a rich history of telling tall tales. Remember when he was retiring to fight Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match? It was supposedly a "done deal." This, coming from a man who learned how to throw a super-secret front kick from Steven Seagal, ignoring the fact that it's the same kick taught to white belts in Taekwondojos around the globe.

No matter.

"Rush" still has to get past "The Natural Born Killer." If he does, it won't take a "Spider" invasion to have the fans clamoring for a 2013 "super fight," which may already be in the works for Cowboys Stadium. All St. Pierre has to do is hold up his end of the bargain on fight night.

Will he?
