My only wish is that this news would've been saved for after GSP's fight. If GSP loses, this instantly becomes a washed up idea. And that will be a disappointment.



I agree but I think it'll create a lot more buzz for the GSP/Condit fight.

I will be going to this FOR SURE!!


I've been waiting for another Texas event and that's a badass one to come back on.

Don't really feel like it should be in cowboys stadium though. I feel like there might be a lot of seats open.

Who cares. I'm excited

Only hold up is GSP, he has been pretty firm in the past saying he didnt want this fight or being vague about it. Only recently has there been some sort of Ok with it.

I still wont believe it until its signed.

Damn I wish this fight was in Chicago....or at least closer.

I would watch this fight for sure though. I think it's the defining moment of our generation as fight fans.

Unfortunately, I've already let myself get too excited. If there is an injury or if GSP loses to Condit, I might just have a nervous break down.



On a side note, does anyone think this is a bit disrespectful to Condit to announce this before he's even had his shot?? It's like the UFC is counting him out of that fight.

Probably very disrespectful to Condit lol, but that doesn't make me less excited.

For me they're a couple years to late for me to be excited about this



I feel the exact opposite. They've both been absolutely dominant the past few years and it's perfect timing with GSP returning.

Here's to hoping it happens!




i'll be watching and i do hope it happens. a couple years ago i was wanting this fight to happen a lot. now i'm just not that excited about it like i was. maybe its from GSP being out so long or jones hitting the scene. i would much reather see silva/jones

I have always wanted to see this fight between these two. If GSP beats Condit and Dana White does set up the fight between he and Anderson Silva AND they have it in Dallas-- I AM GOING FOR SURE! I live in Texas-- No way I would miss that!.

Where is Chael Sonnen to say 'there isn't enough Vaseline in the world'?

Don't get me wrong, this fight is chill but not nearly as chill as the Nick Diaz v Andy fight DW was so quick to shit on.

Nick Diaz has the wrong style to beat Silva. He would put his hands out and give Anderson a foot rub with his chin a la Vitor Belfort, or he would realise how badly he is outmatched standing and eat a knee.

GSP on the other hand, has the spear tackle like takedowns and grinding style that could let him do what Chael tried and failed to do.

That being said, Anderson will take him apart with his striking, and win by TKO (knees in the clinch)

Agreed. What happens to the super fight if Condit ko's GSP, or if he gets injured during the fight. Let's see how GSP handles the layoff, and Condit, then I'll get excited.

GSP as a middleweight?
Ok, I'll watch Anderson knock him out.
