Anderson Silva wants the biggest fights of all time, and Georges St. Pierre fits well

Ed Soares, the manager and translator of UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva speaks once again on the timeline for the retirement of the arguably #1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, adding he’s looking for the biggest fights of all time and GSP fits into that slot quite nicely.

Soares, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“Whether people like it or not, he’s in the later phase of his career. I could see him fighting for another two years, for sure. He wants to fight the best. In a perfect world, I’d like to see Anderson retire in the UFC going undefeated in the UFC. If I could have my perfect world, that’s what I would love to see. He’s probably got a good five or six fights left to do, I believe.”

“I think it’s a fight the world wants to see and I think it could be one of the biggest fights of all time. I think Anderson’s focus right now is Vitor Belfort. That’s what we’re focused on. Georges St-Pierre is an incredible fighter. He’s definitely the best fighter at 170 pounds.”

“It would be an honor to fight Georges St-Pierre, just like it would be an honor for Georges to fight Anderson. It’s two great champions going in there and answering the question who the best pound-for-pound fighter is in the world. I think it could be a huge fight. ”
