UFC President Dana White

Die hard MMA fans thought that UFC 112 signified the end of any possibility of a superfight between middleweight champ Anderson Silva and welterweight king Georges St-Pierr. However, Dana White seems open to the idea again.

“I believe my job is to put on fights that people want to see. I keep hearing that and if enough people want to see it, I guess I’m gonna have to do it,” White said to 790 the Ticket in Miami about putting together the bout.

He also went on to say he doesn’t feel that a showdown between Silva and GSP would be the best fight that the UFC could put together.

“The fight doesn’t really make all that much sense to me,” White stated. “Because Georges St. Pierre is a true 170 pounder. Anderson Silva at 185 has moved up to 205 and done very well at that weight. I see him moving up, not moving down. … I do like Anderson Silva at 205 pounds. That’s a natural weight for him.”

Coincidentally, it was White himself that kept the hype-train moving as St-Pierre was invited to sit cageside at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi to watch Silva defend his title against Demian Maia.

Unfortunately, nobody told “The Spider” that it was okay for him to finish the fight after dominating the first 2Rounds.

From that point forward, it seemed as though all hope was lost for any potential superfight. White has always said that he’s a fan at heart, so who knows what’s in the cards for both Silva and St-Pierre.
