Anderson: “Regardless if GSP loses to Condit, our fight can still happen”

Anderson Silva really likes the sound of a ‘super fight’ with fellow champ and perennial pound for pound great Georges St-Pierre. With Georges St-Pierre looking to return against Carlos Condit at UFC 154 after over a year layoff due to a torn ACL, many questions surround the champ. Will his ACL hold up in the fight? Will he be able to shake off the ring rust? Does he still have the drive to compete after mentioning recently a loss of passion? No matter the situation, Anderson Silva is hoping to have St-Pierre brush himself off and fight him next in a likely early 2013 pay-per-view extravaganza.

“Regardless of who wins, even if St. Pierre loses, a fight with me can happen said Silva. A fight like this is above anything else. St. Pierre is one of the greatest of the UFC. Right now, a fight with Condit is meaningless.-via

If Silva has his way, it would place a bottleneck on the middleweight division for fighters like Chris Weidman and Alan Belcher, who are expected to have a bout agreement shortly. Should St-Pierre retain the belt at UFC 154, the proposed bout would put two divisions titles on hold.  The payday may likely make it worth while however. What matters most to the organization, would the fans all pay to see that?
