Fuck buttons. They’re for poor people.
If there’s one fight in MMA that gives everyone an uncontrollable glistening uber-erection, it’s Georges St Pierre versus Anderson Silva. But the goddamn fight continues to not happen for some reason. There was a brief period of time right before UFC 112 that they started teasing it, but then Anderson Silva went all Dance Dance Revolution on us and since then there’s been nothing but downer comments from Dana White making the situation sound more complicated than the Mid-East peace process. But now: a glimmer of hope!
“I want to see that fight,” Fertitta said. “That’s probably the one fight I really want to see the most.”
“‘GSP’ has to get past Koscheck; Anderson Silva has to get past Vitor Belfort,” Fertitta said. “If that happens, there’s a really good likelihood that we could see that fight – probably some time next summer. … If these guys keep winning their fights, I think it will definitely happen.
“One of the things we wanted to do was allow both of these guys to continue to get through their divisions – meaning there were a lot of contenders that deserved title shots. Because they’re in different weightclasses, we wanted to let that all play out before we put those two guys together. But I mean we’re getting to a point where they’ve pretty much cleaned out the division. Maybe it’s time to watch them and see what happens.”
Hmmmm yeah maybe it’s time. MAYBE. But I dunno. Perhaps it’s time for more nail-biter matchups like Patrick Cote, Thales Leites, James Irvin, and Dan Hardy. I’d cross my fingers and hope that Jake Shields’ wheezy performance at 121 has taken him out of the picture, but it’s not like it makes much of a difference. Anderson Silva is fighting in February so unless Georges wants to sit out the big 45,000+ person Toronto show in April to start packing on the pounds, we’re still nowhere close to the possibility that this fight is gonna happen any time soon.
