White: GSP Doesn’t Want A Superfight Against Anderson Silva

“I’ve been working hard to try to make those fights. Georges St-Pierre would not even think about this fight because Anderson Silva’s going to (lose), according to Georges St-Pierre.”

“At the end of the day, he weighs 170 pounds. Any guy who’s going to fight up in weight – ‘I’m the man here at 170. If I thought I was the man at 185, I’d be at 185.’ I get it. But it’s a fight a lot of fans want to see, it’s a big fight. It’s a legacy fight, and it’s a fight for the pound-for-pound best in the world.

“Georges St-Pierre could do this catchweight fight and he could still be the champ at 170. But what’s crazy to me is, GSP opted to take a very dangerous fight (against Hendricks) at 170 without trying to take a dangerous fight at 185.”

If Anderson Silva defends his title tomorrow night against Chris Weidman, talks of a super fight will come back to the forefront of his career.

UFC President Dana White would have already booked him against GSP had GSP been willing to accept, however according to the UFC boss that’s something the welterweight champion just doesn’t want.
