Prelude to a call-out?
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre will defend his 170-pound strap against Carlos Condit at the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event a week from Saturday (Nov. 17, 2012) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
With all the recent rumors of a 2013 "super fight," is it unreasonable to expect a post-fight visit from "The Spider" if the Canadian remains king? True, the Brazilian is no Chael Sonnen when it comes to call-outs, so I wouldn't expect anything along the lines of "Georges St. Pierre, you absolutely suck!"
Not that it's required.
Just marching Silva into the cage will be enough to send the mixed martial arts (MMA) fan base into a frenzy, assuming "The Natural Born Killer" sticks to the script and doesn't play spoiler. If he does, we may need to ship Andy to "The Garden State" to pay a little visit to Jon Jones following his April 2013 fight in New Jersey.
Or, as crazy as it sounds, maybe he can just go back to 185 pounds and defend his title.
I'm sure Chris Weidman, Michael Bisping and a slew of other middleweight contenders would have no problem with that. But how about you? UFC President Dana White says he makes fights fans want to see, so how about it, what fight do you want to see?
And who thinks Silva is headed to UFC 154 to lay down the gauntlet?
