White: Georges St-Pierre has choice of Anderson Silva or Johny Hendricks next
Dana White: Georges St-Pierre has choice of Anderson Silva or Johny Hendricks for next opponent - MMA Fighting
"If Georges wants to fight Anderson Silva, we're not going to tell him `No, you have to fight Johny Hendricks,'" White said.
White seemed to indicate if it was up to him and he could make the St-Pierre vs. Silva fight, St-Pierre would not vacate the title. He also noted win or lose against Silva, GSP would then go back to defending the welterweight belt.
It had long been speculated the UFC was hoping for a Jon Jones vs. Silva superfight for the 20th anniversary show if it was held at Madison Square Garden. If Jones beats Chael Sonnen on April 27 and Silva beats Weidman, White didn't tip his hat on whether he'd rather go in the Jones vs. Silva direction.
"It's a good problem to have," he joked, when asked about and if both options were open, which one he'd rather do.
