Anderson Silva Wants George St. Pierre Next

Anderson Silva UFC

Mark J. Rebilas-US Presswire

Anderson Silva is set to take on Stephan Bonnar this weekend for UFC 153, and he apparently wants his next fight to be against none other than George St. Pierre.  In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Silva took some time out of his training to explain in English his thoughts about what is next for him in his career.

Ariel asked if he wanted GSP next and Silva responded with, ” Yeah, this is my focus”.

A short answer, but none the less an answer that many fans were hoping for.  Silva has dominated his middleweight division for years now, and GSP has done the same thing in the welterweight division.  It only makes sense that these two fighters would square off at some point down the road.

Well, it finally looks like that point is almost on the cusp of happening.  First, Silva needs to get past Stephan Bonnar, who is a competent mixed martial artist in his own right.  Second, GSP needs to get past Carlos Condit when these two lock horns later this year.

If both fighters get past their respective opponents, then it would behoove the UFC and company to make the match up in order to settle who is the greatest MMA fighter once in for all.  It would be the biggest MMA fight in history, and it would also be one of the biggest pay per view draws in MMA history.

Both fighters are only getting older and slowing down, and it is only a matter of time before we see both of these fighters retire, so making the bout as soon as possible would be ideal.

First things first; Silva has to defeat Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153, which takes place this Saturday in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.  Will Bonnar score one of the biggest upsets in mma history and spoil the plans for a future GSP vs. Silva super fight?  Stay tuned!

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
