Today in Canada, UFC continued its UFC 94 tour of Las Vegas, Toronto and Honolulu. Dana White dropped a bombshell saying that if UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre beats UFC lightweight champ B.J. Penn at UFC 94 in January, he will get a shot at UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva.
White comments on a possible Silva v. GSP fight around the six minute mark.
Penn will not get a shot at Silva if he wins. He also refused to comment on Kenny Florian's comments in the cage and during the ESPNRadio1100 UFC 91 post-fight show. The Hawaiian did tell Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press that he wants to fight Matt Hughes after he beats GSP:
"Did anyone ever kick your ass before and you got pissed off about it?" he said when asked why.
White also mentioned that the UFC will return to Montreal in March or April of 2009. It's more likely to be April with Columbus tentatively slated to get a return date on Mar. 7 during The Arnold Classic.
