Silva is attending UFC 154.
In less than two weeks, long-reigning UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre will step back in the Octagon for the first time since April of 2011. He'll be greeted from his lengthy injury hiatus by one of the most dangerous challengers he's ever faced in Interim Champion Carlos Condit, but if he gets past that test, he may have an even bigger one awaiting him afterward.
For quite some time, there has been talk surrounding the potential for a super fight between St-Pierre and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. The Brazilian superstar himself has been eying that particular matchup, and a win by St-Pierre in Montreal could be the final step needed to set the fight up.
Perhaps in anticipation of that, Silva will head to Montreal next week to attend UFC 154, and he'll be sitting cageside as St-Pierre battles Condit.
That's the word from his manager via Fuel TV's UFC Tonight program. Per Tuesday's show, Silva's planning on attending the event, perhaps so as to call out St-Pierre in the cage following the fight. If he does just that, the UFC will kick off a time period for what will be one of the most anticipated fights in the organization's history.
