The middleweight champion speaks...
UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva appeared on last night's UFC 154 Post-Fight show on Fuel TV to talk about Georges St. Pierre's performance and the potential super fight between the two:
Silva on GSP's performance: "I love it. It's great. Georges is the best fighter. I like the performance of Georges because he had control of the situation on the ground and up. I like it. I am watching and I see a new Georges. It's good."
Silva if he is fighting GSP next: "Yeah, but this is not my decision or Georges' decision. Dana needs to talk to his managers and talk to me because this is the biggest fight in the world. The fans of UFC will love it. Maybe this fight is the best fight in the history of the UFC."
Does Silva want to fight GSP: "Yeah, this is my plan, but it is not my decision. I am here to work for the UFC. I have my plans, Georges has his plans, but we both need to talk to Dana and Lorenzo because this is the biggest fight in the world."
When will Silva talk to Dana White about fighting GSP: "Maybe tomorrow, I don't know."
Will Silva adjust his adjusted year-long vacation to fight GSP: "I need time for training, for talking with my coach, talking with my doctor to start my camp to train for a big fight. I am ready, but I need time to prepare for this fight."
Is May too early to fight GSP: "Maybe. With more time, I'll be ready for the fight."
Where would Silva like a fight with GSP to take place: "In Brazil is good for me. For Georges it's good here [Montreal]. But Dallas Stadium, it is a big show for me, good show for him, it is 50/50."
