Lorenzo Fertitta: We are very open to the idea of GSP vs. SilvaPosted on August 2, 2012, 07:57 AM by Anton Gurevich
Good news for Mixed Martial Arts fans around the world.
According to ZUFFA CEO, Lorenzo Fertitta, Ultimate Fighting Championship will be open to the superfight between Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre, if the French-Canadian is able to defend his title against Carlos Condit later this year. Silva and St. Pierre are currently the most long-serving UFC champions, with a total of 16 title defenses.
Here's what Lorenzo Fertitta said via text to Los Angeles Times:
"We are very open to the idea of Anderson/GSP. If GSP beats Condit, it's a fight we would like to make."
The rumors of Anderson Sila vs. Georges St. Pierre have been circulating in the press for over three years now. Chants of "GSP! GSP!" were heard during Silva's fights with Patrick Cote and Thales Leites, while with every title defense it becomes clear that both fighters are more than ready to solidify their legacy by participating in what would be the biggest fight in sport's history.
Georges St. Pierre will have to defend his title against the Interim UFC Welterweight champ Carlos Condit, while Anderson Silva is currently without an opponent, but with a number of potential title contenders on the horizon. However, with Silva moving closer to his 40's, it's pretty clear that the UFC would love to book the superfight while "The Spider" is still at his peak.
