‘F*ck, Yeah!’ Quote of the Day: Dana White Would Love to Do Silva vs. St-Pierre in Canada in the Near Future


(*mind explodes*)

A fight MMA fans have been clamoring for the past few years is a super fight between two of the sport’s most dominant champions: Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre.

The stumbling block, besides the queue of challengers lining up to face both men is the fact that they compete in different weight classes — St-Pierre at 170 and Silva at 185. It would almost make more sense to have “The Spider” face 205-pound champ Jon Jones since they walk around at a closer weight and Silva has fought and won at light heavyweight, but “Bones” has stated that he has no interest in the fight.

One of the biggest proponents of a GSP-Silva pairing (which St-Pierre says he’s all for in the next 12 months) is UFC president Dana White, who stated this week that he would love to do the fight in St-Pierre’s home country,which would guarantee a sellout even if it was the only bout on the card.

“I want to put on big fights. I want to put on fights the fans want to see. I know how big that fight is. Imagine if we did Anderson Silva versus Georges St-Pierre anywhere in Canada, how big that fight would be. Believe me, I’d love to do it. We’ll see what happens,” he told MMAWeekly. “Obviously it’s a fight that people have been talking about for a long time. So like Georges said, first of all, he has to get healthy. Then he’s got to fight [Carlos] Condit. Anderson is fighting Chael [Sonnen], and then we’ll see where we go from there. I know that Anderson couldn’t make 170 [pounds], so it would depend on Georges moving up or those guys meet at a catchweight or something like that.”

Don’t tease us Dana. Set a date and stick with it, like a marriage pact between aging friends. Tell them, “If you’re both champs on *insert date here*, you’re going to walk down the aisle to the Octagon together and things are going to rapidly go downhill between the two of you from there.” You have three Canadian dates penciled in this year, so it’s totaly doable.

I know you read the site Dana, even if it’s just to further build a case against us, but regardless of your MO, please make this the best New Year’s Eve event in the history of MMA.

I don't understand why people want to see this fight! GSP is no where near Anderson Silva's level. GSP just had a five round striking battle with Jake Shields and couldn't knock him out! And came out the worse for wear! This fight wouldn't even be close it would look like Silva vs. Griffin. I would rather see Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva that would actually be a challenge for Silva. Not trying to take anything away from GSP he is a great fighter but there is just a major skill disparity.

I don't get why people don't want to see this fight.. just because it MIGHT be boring. The way I see it, it's not about an exciting slugfest or ko. It's about answering the question of "what will happen" and "who is really better". I just want to see two of the most dominant pound for pound bests fight each other purely to see who will win. That's the excitement for me. If gsp lay n prays him the whole fight, who cares it's not the end of the world. I'd just be happy that the question was answered and we got the privilege to see these two guys go at it.

Guess since GSP is a smaller guy with less reach, he doesn't qualify as one of Silva's "friends" he refuses to fight, like Jones and Machida...
Bandy13- March 22, 2012 at 9:41 pm
these two will fight before the little penoi dude and the black guy who beats his wife. no not brett rodgers..

Anderson vs Chael II wont hit the ground this time. The only thing that will hit the ground is a newly retired Chael Sonnen. Im sure he will lie his way out of his retirement like everything else.
dranokills- March 22, 2012 at 9:26 pm
I have said it before, and I will say it again. I think GSP against Silva is mehhhh, I am not interested. I want to see crazy ass spaz boy Bones fight "gene gene the dancin machine" Silva. I don't give 2 shakes of shit what Jones says about not wanting to fight Anderson, just walk into his room and tell him " you will fight or I will strip your belt! Fighters don't get to pick, educate them on that Dana.

Mike, I just assumed that was your masterpiece.
ianisthewalrus- March 22, 2012 at 7:02 pm
i dont know why anyone would anticipate this fight. sure, they are both good fighters, but stop and think about it for a minute. there is no way the fight could ever live up to the hype, and about 90% sure it will be a snoozefest. gsp has a reputation for taking a slow and methodical approach, already less than exciting. anderson silva has a reputation for simply not engaging with people when they exhibit anything even remotely close to a methodical gameplan.

its a fight and anything can happen. would love to be proven wrong, and the ufc matchmaking has done worse. but this fight isnt gonna be a great fight for the fans to enjoy. itll just be a great fight to promote and make the ufc money. everyone and there mom will hear about it, including many people who are not regular mma fans. they will tune in for the fight, and never watch mma again.

but the ufc got there 40 bucks, so no biggie...

You didn't like that dude's MSPaint mock-up? Maybe now you bastards will appreciate all I do for you. How many Photoshops did old dad do for you?

Old Dad may not have Photoshopped pictures for us, but he taught us leatherworking and was actually a talented and funny writer. DON'T TAKE HIS NAME IN VAIN!

Georges* St. Pierre (from pic). Love the new format, except the fact that I have to keep changing the comments to "oldest". Good on ya for making some changes.
jimbonics- March 22, 2012 at 4:56 pm
I'll just go ahead and mention the font disparity in that mockup.
HandsofGold- March 22, 2012 at 4:45 pm
I would say that Chael will beat Anderson anyday before Condit beats GSP IMO. Does that then take away from a fight between GSP and Silva?
mDino- March 22, 2012 at 4:00 pm
by the time GSP clears out the WW division (condit, ellenberger, diaz), bulks up and has a test fight at 185, Silva will have retired.
rngeorgeh- March 22, 2012 at 3:58 pm
Silva is way too big for GSP! Interesting that "Bones" isn't interested in a fight with Silva...
ytrebil- March 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm
'...but “Bones” has stated that he has no interest in the fight.

"Bones" or Jon as he is known to his friends then went on to say, "'cos when Rashad owns my ass, whose gonna wanna watch me fight Silva? No fan would want to see that and I'm as big a fan as anybody!".

I have been dreaming of having a BLUE name since I can remember. Today I am one of the smartest retards on here with my special blue name.
Up yours Fried Taco.
rpn452- March 22, 2012 at 3:41 pm
No catchweight please. GSP should want a big fight like that to be for the title. It would be a bigger accomplishment to beat Anderson in his own weight class and it would rule out a lot of excuses and questions that would come up after a catchweight fight. Anderson also doesn't need to be accommodating anyone from a lower weight class. He's the man; lesser opponents should meet him on his ground.

Once, Carlos Condit is being disregarded by everyone. I believe HE has a date coming up with GSP and I hope to high hell that he Matt Serra's GSP into the middle of next week and fucks everyone's plans up the ass with no lube or foreplay WHATSOEVER.
smellypiratehooker- March 22, 2012 at 3:39 pm
thumbs up and down, ohh this should be interesting.

So do I have to change it to 'sort by oldest first' every time I read an article, or do have to just shit in the plants?
