Dana White’s Opinion On The Next Superfight
Dana White, UFC President, stated on Wednesday that if Georges St. Pierre defeats Carlos Condit during UFC 154 that a cage match is imminentbetween Anderson Silva and Pierre, reports USA Today.
White stated that he thought Silva wanted Pierre to win a previous match so that he could fight him in an upcoming one.
Pierre however saw things differently. He said he didn’t really care about what Silva did one way or another and was more focused on his upcoming fight with Carlos Condit at the moment.
“I don’t care about Anderson Silva,” he said. “He can do whatever he wants. He can go to Florida or stay in Brazil if he wants. I’m focused on Carlos Condit right now. That’s all that matters to me.”
The St. Pierre and Condit matchup is scheduled for November 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
White said that whatever the outcome of the UFC 154 headliner is that it will decide who is in the superfight. The superfight could take place in either the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Dallas’ Cowboys Stadium or in a stadium in Brazil which happens to be Silva’s native country.
“Obviously, there’s three great venues that you’d do,” White said. “We could go to Toronto, huge stadium there, Dallas, Texas stadium or a soccer stadium in Brazil. This fight has to happen people. It’s fun to talk about this super fight but I’m sure it’s pissing Carlos off every time it’s asked. We’ve been talking to the Cowboys guys for a while. Whenever we want to do an event there, they’re ready for it.”
