UFC President Dana White appeared on the UFC 154 post-fight show to talk about the main event of Georges St. Pierre and Carlos Condit and how St. Pierre looked upon his return to the cage following an 18 month lay off.

The possible upcoming negotiations for an Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre super fight were also discussed. Check out the highlights and video below:

How White thinked GSP looked tonight: “He looked great. Condit is a tough guy and had his moments. I believe in ring rust, and after an 18 month layoff, GSP looked good. He was tired in the fifth round. But his hands looked good and his takedowns looked good. Condit is a tall order to come back to from 18 months off.”

White on if there will be an epic negotiation with Anderson Silva and GSP to make the fight happe: “I don't think it'll be an epic negotiation period. Both of these guys are under contract. We'll sit down with Anderson probably in the two weeks, and then we'll sit down with GSP.”

White on Johny Hendricks' status: “He looked awesome. There're a lot of guys in line for title fights at 170 and 185. But we're trying to make a super fight happen. We'll see how it goes. We're trying to determine the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. It's a big fight, people want to see it and we want to see it. But maybe Georges St-Pierre won't want to do it, but I don't see that happening. Johny Hendricks will keep fighting. He wants to keep making money.”
