"Georges St-Pierre told me he wants (to fight Anderson Silva). But right now he has to get back on the horse and fight Carlos Condit and be champion again. He needs to keep focused. (If the Silva fight happens) ideally I'd like a catch weight. I think it'd be more fair. If you fight at a catch weight, Silva won't be 20 pounds heavier. 177 or 178 pounds is much more fair."

-- Georges St. Pierre certainly seems to have a lot on his plate lately. On top of his upcoming UFC 154 event in November, which he is already back and training 100 percent for, he's mentioned still wanting to fight Nick Diaz and he's even received a few pointers from Jean Claude Van Damm. Now, to top it all off, he wants a piece of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who's apparently considered vacating his title to pursue big "super fights.". According to GSP's trainer, Firas Zahabi, during an appearance on The MMA Show, St. Pierre would be willing to take on Silva at a catchweight. "Rush" hasn't fought since April of 2011 due to a series of unfortunate knee injuries. Is he letting the distractions take over before he attempts to unify the welterweight titles against Condit?
