If UFC President Dana White has his way, two UFC Title Fights could lead to one superfight as he talks to ESPN.com this week about a potential match up between UFC Middleweight Champ Anderson Silva and Welterweight Champ Georges St. Pierre – if the two are able to defeat their next opponents, Vitor Belfort for Silva and Jake Shields for Pierre:
“What happened is they’re both close to cleaning out their division. If Anderson (Silva) beats Vitor Belfort and (Georges) St. Pierre beats Jake Shields, seriously, what’s left for them? It’s a fun fight to do.
“The fans [understand] that (moving up weight classes is a long-standing tradition for any elite fighter). No doubt about it. That’s what I love about this fight. I’m all about legacy. That’s what matters more than the money. I love it if a guy will go up for a super fight like this. Anderson Silva has already moved up and fought at 205. For ‘GSP’ to do it, I think it’s big for his legacy.”
