GSP/Silva Superfight to Happen

After months of speculation, UFC president Dana White confirmed Friday that Georges St-Pierre will fight Anderson Silva if he wins his bout against Carlos Condit Saturday at UFC 154 in Montreal.

The long-awaited super fight is scheduled for May with Toronto, Dallas or Brazil potential venues.

"This thing has been a hypothetical forver now," White told Showdown Joe Ferraro Friday night. "In no way has the UFC in any way shape or form overlooked Carlos Condit but now we're down to reality time here.

"Tomorrow night either Georges St-Pierre or Carlos Condit is going to win that fight. Anderson Silva will be sitting cage side and if he wins those two will fight in May at Dallas Texas Stadium, Toronto, or a soccer stadium in Brazil. It will happen."

Silva and St-Pierre are widely considered the top two pound-for-pound MMA fighters in the sport's history.

The 37-year-old Silva (32-4) has not lost in 15 fights in the UFC.

The 31-year-old St-Pierre (22-2) will return to the cage Saturday after missing a year due to a knee injury.

Toronto! Toronto! Toronto!

Neither fighter is American. To hell with the Yanks. Unappreciative hicks don't deserve this badboy.

That's right. Come get me, America.

I have less interest in Silva/GSP than I do Condit/GSP.

And honestly, I find it rediculous for Dana White to even announce a night before GSP's return.

Why not wait until after the fight? Why put Condit down like this - unless it's just to pump him up...

And also - why not say who Silva will fight in GSP loses?

Need to do it in Dallas in a stadium that way neither guy will really have a "home cage" advantage. A soccer stadium in Brazil would be bad ass as well. But I would be hella happy if they put it in Toronto because I will be there for sure.

Good ol' Condit.

Well I would suggest Anderson wouldn't take the fight if GSP loses but, it's Anderson Silva, he's a bully looking to pick on a fighter coming off an injury that has altered the careers of many and not for the better, when he could go up and do a much more intriguing fight for the fans but he's too scared Bones will mark up his face.

If Georges does win, make him come to 170, don't give into that bully's demands. If he wants to pick on the little guy make him drain himself to the point he can't defend himself and teach him a lesson and expose him to the entire world.

Do Brazilians pay for PPV's?

I think for the biggest reach, it needs to be in Dallas Cowboy Stadium, as others have stated.

Cowboy Stadium

May 4- Open

May 11- Kenny Chesney

May 18 - Open

May 25 - Taylor Swift (and typically the memorial day weekend show in Vegas)


So what better weekend than May 4 (Cinco De Mayo) in Texas! book it before boxing does, they usually have a big PPV, I doubt they would try and compete with Silva/GSP.

Pack on a great PPV card and people will flock!

Rogers Center (SkyDome) Toronto

May 4 - (Blue Jays day 5 of a 6 game home-stand)

May 11- Open

May 18 - Open

May 25 - Blue Jays (day 6 of a 9 game home-stand)

It's been done, people will probably attend cause of GSP and being a stadium show, but Jon "The Future" Jones has failed twice to bring the hype to Toronto

Geez what an announcement the day before the show. As if he doesn't have enough going on already.

Anderson and Maia fight somehow derailed this years ago already. Only 24 hours to go!

If Floyd wants to fight on Cinco De Mayo, then damnit to hell Boxing GREATNESS will fight on Cinco De Mayo and we will all watch, in astonishment.

Especially if it's against Pacquiao, either way, Silva/GSP, Pacquiao/Mayweather we all know what the result will be, except one guy actually would beat someone his own size.
