If GSP is victorious against BJ Penn at UFC 94, he could be facing Anderson Silva, as mentioned by Dana White, President of the UFC.

In a interview a few months back with UFC President Dana White, Dana commented on the possibility of GSP facing Anderson Silva.

“(Anderson Silva) could meet Georges St. Pierre at a catch weight,” said White. “This guy wants to challenge himself. He’d probably fight at 145 pounds if we asked him to.”

GSP walks around at least around 185. If he wants to move up to fight Silva then he should just fight at MW rather than a catch weight.

Not sure GSP has much of a chance in this one. He can probably consistently take Anderson down when he can find the range to shoot, but Anderson can be very elusive. GSP would probably eat a lot of shots from the outside enroute to a TKO in the later rounds.

The question is...what about Thiago Alves? GSP already takes extended breaks in between fights, it could potentially be another six months.

St.Pierre vs. Anderson is inevitable. The fight is now the most relevant super fight in MMA. I believe St.Pierre will defeat Penn which provides the necessary element for the St.Pierre Silva fight. All though Anderson can dictate range and tempo of the fight, I still believe that St.Pierre's progression and superb ability to game plan for his opponents would also lead him to victory in a bout between the spider. Concerning Alves he should wait, or do what Florian chose to do FIGHT someone else. If you have confidence in yourself that your deserving enough to fight for the WW title, well you should be confident enough to know you can defeat another person. Give him a rematch with Fitch in which he would lose.

He fights typically once every four months, and when he fights BJ it will have been almost 6 months. GSP has always been a guy that likes to have long training camps in preparation for a fight. He defended his title for the first time in August and won't be fighting again until nearly February...yeah I would say that's pretty infrequent.

It's not just Geroge, it seems to be happening with a lot of current champs.

I dont have a link but in a thread earlier it talked about how Dana said that Alves is fighting for the belt next if GSP won and then he would fight Anderson.

No if you read what I had wrote I clearly am talking about Alves. Alves lost to Fitch thus him rematching an opponent whom is still considered a top WW makes sense.

I just hope that GSP doesn't play it ultra safe like he did in the Serra rematch. I mean come on is he that scared of receiving a punch?
GSP vs Silva might just become a lay and pray for GSP if he doesn't first get KOed in the first round.

Anderson being a world class fighter should prepare for that possible scenario. If St.Pierre attempts to use his wrestling to his advantage, and score a decision with take down points and ground and pound that's fine to me. Anderson will be prepared for that and it should be an entertaining fight.

Anderson would knock gsp out on the feet , knock him out with an upkick or sub him off his back . I don't see how gsp can win . Gsp wouldn't beat rich franklin , let alone A silva.

Anderson is questionably faster, no doubt stronger, more technical in most areas of his game, and much bigger than GSP. GSP is a great wrestler but Anderson has dealt with bigger and stronger wrestlers almost with ease. I just don't see how GSP will win.

I think after the gsp/penn fight Georges WIN or lose should fight Alves and after that maybe Silva

Yeah cuz it would make sense for GSP to go in and exchange with Silva.....like it would make sense for GSP to get in a slug fest with Serra?????....LOL......It's not cuz he's scared of taking a punch (he's an mma fighter).....its an issue of forming a game plan that will be advantageous and then implementing it.

BJ has a much better shot at beating Silva than Georges does IMO.

I've got penn winning in the 4th. I would still love to see the fight though. If it's at catch weight who cares about rankings. It's just a great fight.

Honestly- of all the champions; Silva is the one who most deservedly belongs in super fights. There isn't a clear-cut #1 contender in his division right now, and everyone who is close is someone who Silva has destroyed already anyway. I'm sure he'll defend the belt as soon as there is a suitable opponent for him.

I've been asking for GSP/Silva since long before they ever started talking about a Penn fight. And I completely agree with it being at a catch-weight. No Sense in potentially tieing up yet another weight division. Lets have the fight so we can answer some P4P questions. This isn't about belts; it's about history. If GSP can get past Penn, and defend against Alves then there will be no one else in the UFC more deserving of a fight with arguably the P4P king.
