Dana White's wish is Anderson Silva and George St. Pierre's super fight command, according to the Brazilian champion.
"I hope this is my next fight. We want to do a super-fight. I drop a little weight and he goes up a little. It is going to happen anyway, it is Dana White's wish. I think fighting him makes all the sense as well because he is a great name of the sport. As a UFC athlete I want to fight the best and St-Pierre is one of them. Then we try to put on a good show for the fans."
-- Anderson Silva wants it, Georges St. Pierre wants it and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans want it. But, perhaps most important of all, UFC President Dana White wants it, too. "It" is none other than the potential 180-pound catchweight "super" fight between Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre. Ever since the "Spider" wiped the floor with Chael Sonnen in their rematch at UFC 148, a battle between the promotion's 185-pound and 170-pound champions has been the talk of the town. In fact, a prestigious venue, Cowboys Stadium, has already been penciled in and its billionaire owner, Jerry Jones, also wants "it" to happen under his retractable roof. St. Pierre -- who will return from a 1.5 years layoff because of injury to fight Carlos Condit at UFC 154 in November -- has recently tried to pour cold water on the possibility of battling the Brazilian. However, with Silva, White, fight fans and even Jones all aboard the Super Fight Express, it seems nearly impossible at this point for "Rush" to get off the tracks ... even if he somehow loses to the "Natural Born Killer" two months from now. "It" is one mixed martial arts (MMA) wish that might actually come true.
