Nay-sayers can continue to say “it will never happen,” but all parties involved are still currently calling for it. Only issue is the question of Georges St-Pierre getting past Carlos Condit next month. Should the welterweight champ come up short – does anyone care to see the ‘super-fight’ still, as Silva suggests they would? Here’s what Silva’ s manager, Ed Soares updated on the topic during last nights airing of Inside MMA on AXS TV.
“At the end of the day, GSP is the greatest welterweight of all time,” Soares said. “People argue back and forth who the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world is. Some people say it’s Anderson, some people say it’s Georges St-Pierre. So I think the way to settle it is to do a catch weight at 177 1/2, right down the middle, and see what happens.
“I think it’ll be a fight that the fans want to see and it’ll be a great fight.”
