With Georges St. Pierre over his injury doubts following an authoritative display against interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154, what’s next for the Canadian superstar with talks of a super fight with Anderson Silva in 2013 looming?
It’s not many top-line athletes that came back an ACL re-construction, but GSP is one such, who was still able to hit his famed double leg takedown with ease. Not afraid to bring the fight to Condit either, and bar a flash knock-down in third round, GSP never looked like losing.
The win added some fire to speculation of a GSP vs Silva super fight, however the cards seem stacked in the favor of the bigger Brazilian. GSP has showed no interest in the fight at 185 pounds and has hinted that the only way he’d take the fight is if Silva was prepared to cut down to 170 pounds to challenge for his belt. Silva hasn’t fought at that weight since competing in Pride eight years ago. The 37 year-old is no spring chicken either and generally walks around at 220 pounds between fights.
