Anderson Silva to fight Georges St-Pierre at UFC 206?


Over the last few days, there have been rumors of Anderson Silva fighting Georges St-Pierre at UFC 206. Speaking with Dan Hardy for BT Sport after UFC 204, UFC President Dana White summarily dismissed the rumors as untrue.

“That’s not true. So not true. I know everybody keeps talking about — GSP isn’t even close. I’m telling you again, I don’t think GSP wants to fight. I keep saying this. You guys know fighters as much as I know fighters, do you think GSP wants to fight? GSP wasn’t crazy about fighting when he was fighting! Now three years later he’s just dying to fight? He’s not. I don’t think he is.

“That fight is definitely not gonna happen. I don’t think GSP ever returns. And in some cases, that’s not a bad thing. The guy retired, he went out on top, he’s looked at as one of the greatest to ever do it and I just think he lost that fire a long time ago. For some reason – he’s got his own person reasons – he likes to keep his name out there like he might be coming back and everybody is anticipating his return, but at the end of the day I don’t think he wants it.”

UFC 206 takes place in Toronto, Canada at the Air Canada Centre on Dec. 10.
