GSP Isn’t Thinking About a Fight Against Anderson Silva: Fan Reaction

Yahoo Contributor Network

Many in the MMA community are still hoping for a super-fight featuring Anderson Silva and either Jon Jones or Georges St. Pierre. A Silva vs. GSP fight seems like the most likely options, since "The Spider" has already made it clear that he doesn't have any desire to fight Jones.

However, GSP doesn't seem too keen on the idea of a fight against Silva, even though UFC president Dana White has been hyping up the fight recently. The Canadian is actually getting tired of all the interest in the super-fight, and he'd rather stay focused on his upcoming opponent, interim welterweight champion, Carlos Condit.

The two will fight for the welterweight title at UFC 154, set for Nov. 17, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

"I hate that," St. Pierre said about all the talk about a bout against Silva. "They talk to me about the next fight and I'm not there. Like I'm supposed to win easy; like it's a joke. Carlos Condit is a dangerous guy. I always respect my opponent. My life is on the line. … They want to make the money. It's normal. I understand why they want to fight me. … I don't know [about the fight against Silva], I haven't thought about it. I know he's a big guy. I have to sit down and analyze it."

Given the fact GSP hasn't fought in a year and a half, he certainly can't afford to take Condit lightly at UFC 154. "The Natural Born Killer" is one of the best finishers in the UFC, and any mistake inside the Octagon against him can be costly for the champ.

When you factor in the fact that GSP will be testing his surgically repaired knee for the first time at UFC 154, it's easy to understand why the welterweight champion isn't remotely concerned about a super-fight against Silva.
