Anderson Silva’s manager Ed Soares confirms that they’re not standing in the way of a GSP / Silva superfight:
“There’s nothing from our side that’s preventing it. Pretty much to be honest with you, there’s never been anything from our side from preventing any fight. We have our opinions but at the end of the day, whomever the UFC has put in front of us, we’ve always fought. We’ve never picked opponents. We might have had, you know, when they ask us what our choices are, we may have different choices or different opinions, but we’ve always fought whomever they’ve put in front of us. So if the UFC wants us to fight Georges St. Pierre, fine, you know. Anderson says ‘hey, have him move up in weight, or we’ll do a catchweight, whatever.’ But it’s really up to the UFC, not up to us.”
I know, I know. It’s not cool to keep bringing up this fight that will obviously never happen. But the least I can do is make sure everyone knows WHY it’s not happening. And hey, if you believe Dana White, it’s not even Georges holding things up. They’ve never even sat down and talked about the match. Because that makes complete and total sense. Now excuse me while I go hit myself in the head with a hammer.
