Georges St. Pierre Focused On Condit, Not SIlva Heading Into UFC 154

Georges St. Pierre is just days away from returning to action after being on the shelf with a knee injury and although he has a tough task in front of him when he faces Carlos Condit Saturday night, that hasn't stopped the media from asking the welterweight champion about a potential super fight with Anderson Silva.

St. Pierre didn't sway one way or the other when the topic of Silva was put in front of him at this week's UFC 154 pre-fight press conferece.

“Everybody wants to fight me right now, because I'm a big pay-per-view (PPV) draw. But, right now, I'm focusing on Carlos Condit. We'll see what's going to happen after. There's so many guys that want to fight me. Nick Diaz — everybody's calling me out. We'll see.”

St. Pierre also let it be known that his knee is full healed and doesn't expect it to be any problem for him when he steps back in the cage for the first time since April 2011:

“I'm 110-percent. I feel like the injury never happened. I can't cry. Some people don't have money — they're uninsured; they can't walk. Me? I had an injury, but I do what I love for a living. You can have wealth, the love, popularity — everything you want, but if you don't have health, you realize it's the most important thing in life.”
