    Default GSP 'positively knows' a superfight won’t happen because Weidman will beat Anderson S

    Morning Report: Georges St-Pierre 'positively knows' a superfight won?t happen because Weidman will beat Anderson Silva - MMA Fighting

    Two viable options exist for St-Pierre. One, a superfight against UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, is seemingly White's preference, while the other, a title defense against top contender Johny Hendricks, is the more likely choice of the two. Nonetheless, White had yet to speak to St-Pierre and plot out his future, until the pair finally talked this past weekend prior to UFC 160.

    "His guy called me and Lorenzo [Friday], and then he and I talked [Saturday] right before I walked into the fights," White revealed during UFC 160's post-fight scrum.

    "He wants to fight Johny Hendricks."

    News of St-Pierre's decision isn't exactly surprising. The 31-year-old has resisted the idea of fighting the larger Silva for years. Although this time around, St-Pierre's logic is a little different.

    "He 100-percent, absolutely, positively knows that (Chris) Weidman is going to beat Anderson Silva," White declared.

    "No doubt in his mind that [a superfight] won't happen. The fight with [Silva] won't happen because Weidman is going to win. There's no 'what if' for [St-Pierre]. He absolutely, positively knows [Weidman] is going to win that fight."

    You mean he's praying for Silva to be beaten; GSP wants no part of a super fight and is sick of being called out.

    Which I'm fine with. If he wants to stay at 170 and go down in history as the greatest Welterweight fighter of all time, good on him.

    I believe GSP liked some of the super fight talk at first. It kept his name out there may of helped get more sponsorship money & UFC$$$, but now not so sure. GSP always seemed like a safe calculated fighter doesn't want to take much of a chance and Silva is a big chance.
    Is that fine for you two Sirs?

    What GSP MEANT to say was that he never wants to fight Anderson, and hopefully Weidman wins so people quit pressuring him to do so...

    ...because lets be honest, anybody who says they are 100% sure ANYBODY is going to beat Anderson is full of shit, especially Weidman. Anderson will likely destroy him.

    I wonder if this is GSP creating some drama around the superfight between him and Anderson. That's still a great fight to retire on and now Jones might stand in the way.

    GSP does do a bit to promote. Saying guys are disrespectful, saying he has personal demons, and the classic "I was not impressed." If anything, I see him talking about the superfight as evidence that it'll happen.

    Kind of like politics: if you take the time to address it, it's probably real.

    GSP plays the humble role to the point of holier than thou quite often.
