UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was recently a guess on UFC Connected, where he discussed just what it would take for him to face UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
St-Pierre, who has a bout planned for October against Carlos Condit at UFC 137, said that he would like the UFC to leave both himself and Silva on the shelf while he works his body to the 185-pound limit to avoid any injuries or losses happening to either fighter.
“It just depends on the amount of time I have to do it. If I do it, I have to do it well, it takes time,” St-Pierre said. “But, if the UFC is willing to give me the time to do so, and not make me fight during that period time…(also) if (Silva) fights and something happens, you know (if) he loses and now he’s not invincible, (then) everything goes out the window.”
For now, though, GSP will focus on Condit, someone he has trained with for many fights in New Mexico at Greg Jackson’s gym. There is also the possibility that St-Pierre is still paired up with Nick Diaz if Diaz gets by B.J. Penn in the co-main event of UFC 137.
