Silva is attending UFC 154.

Quote:
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.

Could you imagine what would happen if he told GSP he was not impressed by his performance?

MMA Forums would go down.

When was the last time GSP displayed an impressive performance anyway?

Well personally I find most of his performances impressive because he just dominates his opponents for 25min.

But
In my opinion it looked like Gsp was on track to getting a finish against Jake shields up until he got poked in the eye and coudlnt see out of it. I think if I remember correctly he dropped Jake shields twice and had his timing down and then the eye poke came and put a stop to that. But there is no way to know for sure so take it with a grain of salt.

All that matters now is how gsp performs against Carlos Condit. Surpisingly I wouldn't be surprised if Condit wins via flying knee as gsp shoots in. I can't see Condit winning any other way.

When he nearly retired Koscheck with a jab?

In all fairness Jake hasn't proven that much since entering the UFC though. He never had the success that he had prior to joining, and most of his fights are lackluster at best and his stand-up is positively dreadful. Hopefully St. Pierre comes back hungry off this layoff and it's a great fight. But I seriously doubt there will be a finish.

They went the distance both times they fought, anyway.

I really respect GSP for his discipline, drive and accomplishments. He is a great champion. I rather state his dominance as a champion is impressive instead of his performances IMO.

Every time he completely shuts down his opponent, which would be nearly all of his fights.

If someone asked me if GSP was exciting I would tell you "hell no". But the notion that he doesn't win impressively is just so retarded it makes my brain hurt.
