Dana White: I would love to do GSP vs. Silva in CanadaPosted on March 23, 2012, 05:33 AM by Anton Gurevich
“Obviously it’s a fight that people have been talking about for a long time. Like Georges said, first of all, he has to get healthy. Then he’s got to fight Condit. Anderson is fighting Chael Sonnen (80,000 soccer stadium in Brazil), and then we’ll see where we go from there. I want to put on big fights. I want to put on fights that the fans want to see. I know how big that fight is. Imagine if we did Anderson Silva vs. GSP anywhere in Canada, how big that would be. Believe me, I’d love to do this fight. We’ll see what happens.”
Speaking at the "special announcement" UFC press conference in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Dana White once again spoke about the potential superfight between Georges St. Pierre and Anderson "The Spider" Silva. White admitted he would love the match-up to take place in Canada, with sights on breaking the attendance record set at UFC 129: GSP vs. Shields, which took place at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
Reigning UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre remained politically correct about the question of fighting Anderson Silva. St. Pierre said he's currently concentrating on rehabilitating his knee, and the upcoming title defense against the Interim champ Carlos Condit.
