UFC President Dana White explained what fans can expect to see if UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is to get past Carlos Condit later this month at UFC 154.

During a conference call for the event this week, White elaborated on a potential superfight between St. Pierre and Anderson Silva.

“If Georges St. Pierre against Anderson Silva were to happen, that's the fight you could do at Cowboys Stadium,” said White. “We've been talking to (Cowboys Stadium officials) for a while. They're pumped and ready whenever we can bring an event there. They're ready for it.”

“People keep asking me, 'Is the Anderson Silva fight happening next?' He's got to beat Carlos Condit first,” White said. “People are overlooking Carlos Condit, and that's a bad idea.

“Understand that this fight between Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre is a pound-for-pound fight. Both of these guys have been No. 1 or No. 2, either way you want to call them, for the last however many years. That's really what the fight is all about. If Carlos Condit wins the fight, he'll defend the title against whoever's next.”

“I have no idea (about the Hendricks-Kampmann winner),” White said. “We have to see how this thing (St. Pierre-Condit) plays out.”
