Sorry Spidey, but if Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre could have his dream fight come true, it wouldn't be for the middleweight title at Cowboys Stadium.

It would be in the Kumite.

St. Pierre, who defends his 170-pound gold against Carlos Condit at the upcoming UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Nov. 17 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, was apparently impressed by Jean-Claude Van Damme's performance in "Bloodsport," where the "Muscles from Brussels" played the role of American Ninja, Frank Dux.

Chong Li out, GSP in.

After the jump, St. Pierre breaks down his fantasy fight to the Vancouver Sun and also explains why he's no longer focusing on future fights inside the Octagon, thanks to a part-time power puncher named Matt Serra.

Check it out.

"I would have liked to fight Jean-Claude Van Damme in ‘Bloodsport.' That would have been my dream fight, in an MMA cage. When I fought Matt Serra, that’s where I learned focus is the main thing — on the present. I never make the same mistake twice. I took lessons from (the Serra loss) and I came back stronger after."

That present includes a much overdue fight against "The Natural Born Killer."

Condit, who holds the division's Interim strap after outpointing Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 143 earlier this year, is currently a +280 underdog to St. Pierre's -370, which is a fairly sizable gap considering we don't yet know how the Canadian kingpin will perform in the wake of major knee surgery.

Time will tell.

Until then, let's get some fantasy feedback. If you could travel back to 1988 with St. Pierre in tow, how long do you think he would last in the Kumite?
