UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva made it known to those listening to ESPN LA710AM recently that he is willing to take a fight with Georges St-Pierre before he retires from MMA. Currently, Silva is on tap to meet Chael Sonnen this summer.
“GSP is the best fight (for me) in this sport,” Silva said. “It would be a great, great, great fight. He is a good guy. Maybe one day, this is a good fight.”
St-Pierre is rehabbing from knee surgery, and will likely face Carlos Condit to unify the UFC welterweight title in his return bout. Both men have talked about the fight before, but it remains unclear if anything will come about.
As for any chance of a Silva-Jon Jones bout, “The Spider” quickly eliminated those talks, saying, “The fight between me and JJ is no good, he is a different (weight) class. In my camp we have (light heavyweights Antonio Rogerio) ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira and Lyoto Machida.”
