Dana White: “GSP told me straight up, I’ll fight Anderson Silva right now”

UFC President, Dana White reveals that UFC welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre will fight UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, but first Anderson has to take care of busniess in the middleweight division.

Dana White, speaking via TSN’s Off the Record, said:

“GSP told me straight up, I’ll fight him [Anderson] right now. If you guys want to make that fight, make the fight. GSP is not concerned what so ever with fighting Anderson Silva.”

“First, Anderson Silva has a couple guys he needs to beat. He needs to beat Chael Sonnen and probably Vitor Belfort, should Vitor win his next fight. Here’s the other problem, Georges St.Pierre is a natural 170 pounder. Anderson Silva not only cuts to 185, he’s fought at 205. That’s kind of why the fight doesn’t make sense to me. But if enough people want to see it, I’ll make it.”
