Dana White says Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre for fans, not for money

UFC President, Dana White has revealed that when the promotion sets current champions, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre against each other it’s going to be for the fans rather than money.

White, speaking via ESPN.com, said:

“What happened is they’re both close to cleaning out their division. If Anderson beats Vitor Belfort and St. Pierre beats Jake Shields, seriously, what’s left for them? It’s a fun fight to do…. The fans [understand] that. No doubt about it [on the challenge of moving up in weight]. That’s what I love about this fight. I’m all about legacy. That’s what matters more than the money. I love it if a guy will go up for a super fight like this. Anderson Silva has already moved up and fought at 205. For ‘GSP’ to do it, I think it’s big for his legacy.”
