UFC President Dana White says that so many UFC fans are asking him about welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre fighting middleweight champion Anderson Silva that he may soon have no choice but to put the fight together.

"People ask me that all the time," White told Dan LeBatard, via Sports Radio Interviews. "This is what I believe. I believe my job is to put on fights that people want to see. I keep hearing that and enough people want to see it. I guess I'm gonna have to do it."

I see GSP losing big in this fight. Think GSP vs BJ 2.

I think at the very least GSP would make sure Anderson would fight. GSP is not going to dance around like the last 3 fighters Anderson has fought at MW.

I think the fight would be closer than people think.

GSP would cause Silva to take this fight seriously which usually ends in a huge quick KO; think Silva vs.Forrest.

Anderson Silva would be the favorite to win, but you never know. MMA is so unpredictable.

anyway ya look at it..it will be awesome

Gsp would try and take him down, there might be a difference between andy's last few fights and this one, but I garentee GSP UD's him via the same ole same ole.

put it on free tv dana!

id probably pick anderson, but it would be a good fight

please happen!!! and at 170 especially. GSP is not a mw no matter how good or big guys think he is. GSP had the advantage over Bj, just like Silva would have on GSP at 185 or higher. To make it fair (since Silva wants to drop) GSP should get to fight at his weightclass cause he is smaller.

This could be coming out now because Fedor is "possibly considering retirement" and GSP-Silva is the big 1 everyone wants , outside of Fedor vs Brock, Carwin, Jr, and Cain. I Think DW also may be using this as a way to get Shields for cheaper, by making the point more fans (like me) want a 170 lb fight with GSP and Silva, than Shields vs. anyone.

If Chael wins vs Silva will fans want Chael vs GSP? I would like to find out who the better wrestler is. GSP has a lot more styles of takedowns, where Chael is like Kos, they get that double and run anyone over.

I highly doubt it happens. I think after sonnen. Or even after belfort
He will go to light heavy and stay there and vacate the title

I think if this fight happens its way down the road.

Like Prozac said, Silva will probably move to LHW permanently while GSP will likely move up to MW.

Although if Dana and Co. get sanctioning in Ontario I'm pretty sure this is the fight Dana sees headlining the Toronto show. If they're going to do a show in front of 60,000 fans I can't think of a better headliner not involving Fedor.

That would absolutely not be fair. Anderson hasn't had to cut that kind of weight since he was a very young man. He would be drawn out and weak. On the other hand, GSP would have to cut very little to make 185 which means he'd probably have even more energy than usual.

It would have to be at 185 or a catchweight.

i would like to see that fight before a lhw run I'm looking at it like this silva is the greatest 185er of all time moves down beats the soon to be greatest 170er the moves up and makes the run at 205 I'm not saying he can beat shogun cause i think their standup is on the same level but it would be the biggest fight ever when they do fight im like 95% sure it will happen title or no title

and on a side note gsp has a vary good chance of beating silva if gsp was an underdog i would put dome dough on him do sho

Keep in mind this is comming from the same guy who said the UFC would definately have Fedor, we'd have UFC vs Pride for the, "super bowl of martial arts" and a host of other guarantees that never came to fruition. I'll beleive it when I see it. I'm not calling him a liar, I just think he speaks too soon a lot of the time.

noahgenda » Posted 5/28/09 4:34:00PM

absolutely no chance this fight would happen at 170, you have to be kidding me
