For many UFC fans, this would be a dream match-up. Anderson Silva, who already has a title fight ahead of him in just a few days against Demain Maia, is already looking for new bouts in the future, one of which would include him dropping down to welterweight.
Silva reported to Yahoo! Sports Kevin Iole recently;
“I’d like to test myself and I always love to take on new challenges,” Silva said in the interview. “It’s not that I want to go fight Georges St. Pierre for his title. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s the reigning champion, the absolute champion, in that weight category. But I just want to test myself and see how I’d do at that weight.”
Silva also stated that he’d have to do at least two fights at 170, one to make sure he could get down to that weight and of course a fight against Georeges St. Pierre. But he also mentioned he’d like to perhaps move up in weight, to fight heavyweight. If this fight actually does come into play, I’m sure this would be the UFC’s biggest event to date. We’ll keep you guys posted if more news comes in.
