Dana White Talks On Georges St. Pierre Vs. Anderson Silva Fight

Written by Michael Lambarde on Feb. 05, 2011

If UFC President Dana White has his way, two UFC Title Fights could lead to one superfight as he talks to ESPN.com this week about a potential match up between UFC Middleweight Champ Anderson Silva and Welterweight Champ Georges St. Pierre – if the two are able to defeat their next opponents, Vitor Belfort for Silva and Jake Shields for Pierre:

“What happened is they’re both close to cleaning out their division. If Anderson (Silva) beats Vitor Belfort and (Georges) St. Pierre beats Jake Shields, seriously, what’s left for them? It’s a fun fight to do.”

“The fans [understand] that (moving up weight classes is a long-standing tradition for any elite fighter). No doubt about it. That’s what I love about this fight. I’m all about legacy. That’s what matters more than the money. I love it if a guy will go up for a super fight like this. Anderson Silva has already moved up and fought at 205. For ‘GSP’ to do it, I think it’s big for his legacy.”
