According to Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will be attending UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit later this month. Helwani confirmed the news with Silva’s manager.
“When (Silva’s manager) was asked why he was going, he said maybe to call out GSP if he wins,” Helwani reported. “Silva doesn’t really travel to many fights, especially if he is not fighting.”
Rumors of a potential Silva-GSP super-fight going down in early 2013 have been building for quite some time now. Lately, more people have seemed interested in a Silva-Jon Jones contest.
