Anderson Silva Will Be In Attendance For George St. Pierre vs. Carlos Condit Fight

Anderson Silva UFC

Mark J. Rebilas-US Presswire

George St. Pierre is set to take on Carlos Condit for UFC 154, which takes place November 17, 2012.  It appears Anderson Silva will be in attendance, and something historic may take place if in fact GSP is able to defeat Condit.  This report comes from Dana Whitein the UFC 154 media conference call:

“There’s no doubt Anderson Silva (is) showing up to cheer Georges St-Pierre on, and he wants him to win this fight. He wants to fight him after. So I would say yes (he will challenge him in the cage).”

This is huge news for MMA fans across the globe because it appears we may finally have the showdown that we have all been waiting for.  Anderson and GSP have been two of the best mma fighters for some time now, and their bout would surely big the biggest fight in the sport of mixed martial arts.

It would be the biggest fight for both fighters, and the winner cements their status as being the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.  Just thinking about it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

All of this can happen if George St. Pierre goes out and successfully defends his title against Condit, which is no easy task for anyone.  Condit has stated on many occasions that he wants to spoil this super-fight and prove that he is the best welterweight in the world.  Condit is currently on a five fight winning streak, and many feel he has the skills to defeat GSP standing.  This certainly doesn’t bode well for Pierre since he has been out of action since April of last year.

The pressure certainly has increased for both fighters when they square off on November 17.  GSP will be trying to prove that his knee is better than ever, and that he is still the best welterweight in the division.  For Condit, he will be trying to spoil these plans in hopes of seizing his dreams at being a UFC champion.

For Anderson, he wants to fight GSP in hopes of proving who the best fighter is once and for all.  If GSP can win, it will be interesting to see what type of confrontation Silva has with him and vice verse for GSP.

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.
