Morning Report: Anderson Silva's manager casts doubt on GSP superfight ever happening - MMA Fighting
Well, that was fast. As quickly as the potential bout between Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre was being built up and borderline promoted, the (defensible and understandable) obstinate GSP has thrown cold water on the whole idea. That's so true that, as our own Ariel Helwani reported last night on UFC Tonight, Silva's manager thinks the fight won't happen.
"We have heard a lot from GSP. He said he wants this fight to happen on his terms. He may not be ready for it just yet," Helwani said. "But I spoke to Anderson Silva's manager last night, and he told me that he truly doesn't believe that GSP wants this fight next and therefore he doesn't believe this fight will happen."
Like I said, that didn't take long. GSP basically isn't budging not only from statements he's made in recent months, but even in recent years. I can't ever remember a time where GSP indicated there were reachable conditions for the fight to happen absent some nebulous future time where it could all go down.
