Anderson Silva says he will NOT challenge GSP at UFC 154 | UFC News MMA News | Mixed Martial Arts | UFC News | BJPenn | MMA Fight | UFC Fights
Last Wednesday, UFC President Dana White claimed that UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) would be heading to Montreal to challenge Georges St. Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) to a 2013 “Superfight”, if GSP was to defeat Carlos Condit in the evenings main event. |
However, contrary to the statements made by the UFC President, Anderson Silva insists that he’s only heading to Montreal for a vacation and that he is not in the business of issuing challenges.
Here is what the long-time UFC middleweight champion had to say to Tatame.com:
Without an open challenge from “The Spider”, the “super fight” may never come to fruition.
“I’m on vacation for the fight. I think we just come back at the end of next year … I’m going to Los Angeles and then going to Canada for the fight of St. Pierre. I’m already going to be there to shoot a movie, a feature film that I’ll participate in with Lyoto (Machida). It’s not my character to up and challenge anyone. I think it will not happen. I think not, I’m sure (laughs).”
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
