On a recent episode of The MMA Beat, Mike Straka said that Georges St. Pierre would require $50,000,000 to take a fight with Anderson Silva. The GSP vs. Silva fight has become a focus of the UFC with Dana White repeatedly saying he'd make the fight happen regardless of what the fighters themselves have said.

If it were true that would simply mean hes not interested...

I would be surprised if Dana would even pay 10 million seriously...

One must think that pay per view would only generate 50 million period..thats off 1 million pay perviews at 50 dollars a piece....which UFC I seriously doubt gets every cent from ppv...IM guessing UFC gets around 70 percent tops...

Then you have Silvas fee....

I didn't even see this rumour in the first place, now it's all over every mma site. Fair enough. Just don't make the fight

Not right now, with the current exchange rate at 1.0071, 50 million us is actually 50,355,000 Canadian

This is tabloid shit, alien babies and the reincarnation of Elvis and Tupac. Who wouldn't take a fight vs Superman for that money.....that is a lifetime guaranteed of financial security and freedom. I would take the time to seriously consider conducting a blowjob for that kind of money.

GSP is preaching cause it probally is true. Why would he even bother defending if it was false, or even come out about this to the media? Pretty sad this is the type of money it would take to get a fight the fans want to see. Wonder what all these GSP fans think about this, considering the guy is more concerned about ridiculous amount of money just to do something he loves. All these atheltes make me sick, greeeeeeedy!! I guess some of these gifted fighters do have a lot in common with Dana and the Fertitas after all!

GSP's always given me an honest, forthcoming, decent impression, and this is after watching him in press conferences and interviews for years. I don't know him personally, but I've either got a good idea or he is a master of deception.

Also bear in mind that GSP is one of the most image-conscious athletes in the sport. He wears suits to every event. He rarely loses his temper publically, and when he does, it's understandable and still kept in check. He has a PR agent. He may have fired a previous one after the Serra loss. He hired a sports psychologist. He's got big sponsorship deals. He appears in media not specifically related to MMA. I don't feel that his denial is an indication of guilt, rather the continuation of a trend long established that he cares about perception.

Considering this is one report of a rumor from some random guy that lacks triangulation from any other source, I'm willing to take his words as the truth until proven otherwise.

We could be looking at a lot of possibilities here, and I'm going to emphasize that they are possibilities and not even close to fact at this time -

--The agent (not GSP) demanded the fee
--The agent or GSP put the $50 milion out as an opening request, expecting it to be lowered through the normal negotiating process
--The report came from a guy wanting attention
--The report came from a guy who heard it elsewhere

- and these are but a few.

I would probably try NOT to take time to consider the pro's and con's of that situation.

Just jump on in.

With that kind of money you will be able to afford all the material and social goods necessary to erase the memory.
