Anderson Silva Still Believes GSP Fight Is Possible


Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is free to return to action this November after serving a one year suspension from USADA.

Silva is still yearning for a fight with former two division UFC champion Georges St. Pierre and he believes the bout can still come together.

“Anything is possible in the UFC, man,” Silva said to MMA Fighting. “It’s a very eclectic company, with a broad vision of the sport. They are going through a new moment, a moment of entertainment, so anything can happen.”

Neither fighter has been to active lately, as GSP fought for the first time in over four years at UFC 217 and Silva hasn’t fought since UFC 208 in 2017.

The former middleweight champion would like to have the potential super fight happen at 185 pounds, but realizes things have to be discussed before anything can come together.

“I think the decisions have to be made at the time they have to be made,” Silva said. “I think he had a good strategy, did a good fight with Bisping. They are both great fighters. If we didn’t fight that’s because it really shouldn’t have happened.”

GSP has yet to respond to the challenge from Silva, but is also battling ulcerative colitis at the moment.
