Dana White says yes, Anderson Silva will challenge Georges St. Pierre following UFC 154

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

According to UFC President Dana White, he believes Anderson Silva will indeed step inside the Octagon following the UFC 154 main event to challenge Georges St. Pierre to a "super fight."

Shit just got real.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva has already confirmed he will be in attendance in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on Nov. 17, 2012 to take in the UFC 154 festivities.

Specifically, the main event which will pit welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre taking on interim champion Carlos Condit in a title unification match. It's no secret "The Spider" wants to challenge "Rush" in a much anticipated super fight, win or lose, against "The Natural Born Killer."

As if "GSP" isn't under enough pressure in facing a very formidable opponent in Condit after such a long layoff, UFC president Dana White just might have turned up the heat a little bit more.

Speaking at today's (Nov. 7, 2012) UFC 154 media conference call White revealed that not only will his 185-pound champion be in attendance, front row, rooting for St. Pierre, but he believes Anderson will actually challenge the French-Canadian inside the Octagon after the match:

"There's no doubt Anderson Silva (is) showing up to cheer Georges St-Pierre on, and he wants him to win this fight. He wants to fight him after. So I would say yes (he will challenge him in the cage)."

How's that for added pressure?

As if he didn't have enough to worry about in Condit trying to knock his block off, Georges now knows in advance that perhaps the greatest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter to ever live will be waiting to lay down the gauntlet immediately after the fight.

Though "Rush" is a professional through and through and will try his hardest not to let this little tidbit of information distract him from the immediate task at hand, you can't help but to think he will have it etched in the back of his mind come fight night.

How about it Maniacs, are you anxious to see if this face-to-face challenge actually goes down?
