UFC Quick Quote: Dana White still undecided on Anderson Silva vs Georges St. Pierre superfight

via <a href=""></a>

"I think that, as guys get closer to cleaning out divisions, new guys always pop up. But this really is, if these two continue to win and in the way that they do... I mean, I consider, in my own personal pound-for-pound, Anderson Silva is number one and Georges St. Pierre is number two. So it really would be a pound-for-pound dream match of number one vs. number two. And I know a lot of fans want to see it so we'll see what happens, we'll see how this thing plays out."

-- Big surprise, fight fans. UFC President Dana White (via MMA Fighting) is still spouting the same line on a potential match-up between Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre. Apparently, they need to continue dominating their own divisions before a superfight can ever come to pass. This despite Silva decisively defeating Yushin Okami last night (Aug. 27, 2011) at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to effectively clean out the 185-pound division. If St. Pierre brings home a win over Nick Diaz at UFC 137 on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, he will have essentially done the same at 170-pounds. What's left for either fighter in their respective weight class? Rematches and puffed up contenders? That may be so but it's looking more and more likely that St. Pierre vs. Silva will never happen. You Maniacs okay with this?
