Prior to his bout against Stephan Bonnar, Anderson Silva’s camp went on about a potential superfight against UFC welterweight champion GSP.

Silva and his team of representatives proclaimed on numerous occasions that the GSP bout is what they wanted next.

According to a recent report over at mmafighting.com, it would appear as if Silva is taking the long trip to Montreal to sit cageside at the event for a possible challenge to GSP should he win at UFC 154.

Here is what they said:

A party with a vested interest in the outcome of UFC 154’s main event is heading to Montreal a week from Saturday night.

Sitting front row Octagonside at the Bell Centre will be UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

And depending on how the bout between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and interim champion Carlos Condit pans out, there’s a chance that before the evening is over, the wheels could be fully set in motion for a superfight which has long been speculated.

Silva’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, hinted to MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani on the Tuesday night edition of Fuel TV’s UFC tonight that a challenge is forthcoming if St-Pierre defeats Condit.
