Georges St. Pierre: Winning would mean everything against Anderson Silva

Georges St Pierre



"If I fight Anderson Silva one day, if this fight happens, I'm going to take an extra month to make sure that my weight is at 200 pounds minimum. I want to get bigger and I'm going to take some extra time to do that because if I do it I want to do it well. And if I do it I want to win ... there is only one thing on my mind. I'm not going to do it just to try. If I do it it's to win. It depends on the timing -- right now is not good timing for me, but maybe one day it will be. "

Georges St. Pierre talks about needing time to bulk up and prepare for a possible clash with Anderson Silva in the future. The potential clash of champions, and perhaps the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet, has picked up steam since "Rush" steamrolled Thiago Alves for five rounds at UFC 100. He'll likely face the winner of Mike Swick-Martin Kampann at UFC 103 at a later date. And if he can pull off another dominating win he will have essentially defeated every top welterweight on the promotion's roster, leading to a potential move up in weight to test himself against the best at 185 pounds. It's closer than we may think -- early 2010 perhaps?
