SIlva Claims Everyone In MMA Wants Silva-GSP
With a Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell trilogy fight on the horizon, Anderson Silva believes another battle between two UFC legends needs to happen between he and Georges St-Pierre.
Silva thinks the demand is there for a fight between the two-division champion and himself, and told the Inquisitor that “everybody in the sport” wants to see them fight.
“Yeah, absolutely. Georges is the great name in Canada; I’m the big name in Brazil. I believe everybody in this sport [would] like to see Georges and Anderson Silva in a super fight,” Silva told Inquisitr in a recent interview.
St-Pierre, who last fought last November, told Submission Radio that the idea is not one that is a “win-win.”
“Right now, I don’t think it’s a win-win situation for me, because I have a lot more to lose than to win right now fighting against Anderson Silva,” GSP said.
St-Pierre is more focused on moving down to lightweight and facing the winner of the Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor fight at UFC 229, instead of fighting someone like Silva or Colby Covington.
UFC President Dana White is hoping to have St-Pierre fight later this year at UFC 231, when the UFC returns to Toronto on Pay Per View, while Silva looks to return after being exonerated by USADA over a PED test.
