Dana White: Georges St. Pierre vs Anderson Silva fight in May 2013 ... if GSP beats Carlos Condit at UFC 154

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

Georges St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva, a super fight it seemed MMA fans would never get, is going to happen in May 2013 in a stadium in Dallas, Toronto, or Brazil ... IF "Rush" can defeat Carlos Condit at UFC 154 tomorrow night (Nov. 17) in Montreal.

It's so close, you can almost taste it now.

First it was simple speculation, then it was a strong rumor, then it was teased but not announced, now it's in the initial stages of actually getting booked for a time, date, and location.

I'm talking, of course, about a potential super-fight pitting Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre vs. Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White told FUEL TV that if St. Pierre defeats Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 154 on Sat., Nov. 17, 2012, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, he will make the super-fight and he's already ironing out the details:

"I don't think people are looking past Carlos Condit. More importantly, Georges St. Pierre isn't, that's all that really matters. This fight has always been a what if and a what if, well, that what if is coming down to tomorrow. If Georges St. Pierre beats Carlos Condit tomorrow, Anderson Silva will be there sitting cageside and those two will fight and probably in May at either Dallas Texas Stadium, Toronto, or a soccer stadium down in Brazil."

Imagine: St. Pierre emerges victorious tomorrow night and Silva climbs inside the cage to challenge him, a staredown for the ages in anticipation of what would undoubtedly be the biggest fight in the promotion's history.

But let's not count out Condit who plans on spoiling this fantasy by finishing the French-Canadian and moving on to create a legacy of his own, even if it's not what any mixed martial arts (MMA) fan wants right now.

If he doesn't, though, the term "super-fight" will take on a whole new meaning.

Can you taste it?
