Earlier this week, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva said he's going to UFC 154, which takes place this Saturday night (Nov. 17, 2012) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, but it won't be to call out reigning UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre.
Even though UFC President Dana White claims it will.
The Las Vegas fight boss was on the hook yesterday for a special fan Q&A on ESPN SportsNation, where one mixed martial arts (MMA) fan asked if "The Spider" was "bluffing for more money, scared of GSP, or just really not interested" in a potential "super fight."
"Silva said he wouldn't fight Chael either. He will be in Montreal on Saturday night and if GSP wins, they'll fight. When we go to Dallas, I want to bring the right fight there. I think it is either GSP-Anderson or Anderson-Jon Jones."
White sounds fairly confident.
Maybe that's because he's already offered the Brazilian banger a blank check to continue bouncing in and out of divisions. His most recent trip north ended in a brutal knockout of light heavyweight juicer Stephan Bonnar at the UFC 153 event last month in Rio.
How about his next trip south?
That all depends on St. Pierre, who isn't going anywhere against anybody until he first disposes of Carlos Condit at this weekend's UFC 154 extravaganza. Even then, a lot could depend on his performance inside the cage. Time will tell. In the meantime, anyone else sick of talking about this "super fight?"
Or has it become a foregone conclusion?
