UFC News: Anderson Silva May Call Out Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154

UFC News: Anderson Silva May Call Out Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154
By John Heinis on November 08, 2012

Could one of the most long-awaited super fights in UFC history really happen in 2013? If it’s up to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, that will certainly be the case.

Silva’s manger, Jorge Guimaraes, told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani on the Tuesday night edition of Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight that “The Spider” will be attending UFC 154 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

When asked why Silva is heading to the Bell Centre, rarely attending UFC events he isn't a part of, Guimaraes replied "maybe to challange GSP is he beats Condit."

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre headlines the card against interim champion Carlos Condit, with the winner unifying the belts. Should “Rush” come out on top in front of his home crowd, Guimaraes implied that a challenge from Silva may be forthcoming.

Fans have been clamoring for a super fight between Silva and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, but given Silva’s recent comments that he’d want 50 percent of the UFC to fight “Bones” indicates that fight is a long ways from happening.

Additionally, Jones is already set to take on Silva’s old nemesis, Chael Sonnen, in April after the two coach season 17 of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite one another.

St-Pierre has largely been mum on a possible bout with the Brazilian superstar, but recently told MMA Junkie that his sole focus is on his upcoming bout with Condit.

"I don't care about Anderson Silva," he said. "He can do whatever he wants. He can go to Florida or stay in Brazil if he wants. I'm focused on Carlos Condit right now. That's all that matters to me."

Should the bout come to fruition as planned, it would more than likely be at a catchweight of 178 pounds, a weight class in between welterweight and middleweight.

With a victory next week, should GSP step up to the plate and fight the seemingly unbeatable Silva or simply be content at dominating his own division?
