Georges St Pierre Sept GSP 2012_1957UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will return to action after more than a year and a half away from the sport and face Carlos Condit at UFC 154, but all anyone seems to talk about these days is GSP facing Anderson Silva.

The superfight, which would almost be a lock for the biggest fight in MMA history, has been mentioned by both Silva and UFC president Dana White as the bout most likely to happen next should St-Pierre defeat Condit in November.

It appears, however, the only person who hasn’t signed on for that deal is St-Pierre himself.

He believes there’s a lot of disrespect in even talking about an Anderson Silva fight when he has interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit standing directly in his path.

“It’s terrible. I hate that, but I’m not focusing on that. I’m not speculating,” St-Pierre told MMAWeekly.com. “I’m thinking about Condit right now; that’s what I should do.”

Since his injury, St-Pierre has watched a welterweight division he’s ruled with an iron fist over the last few years flourish in his absence. Not only has Condit moved into position as the interim champion, but Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks are now poised as No. 1 contenders who fight on the same UFC 154 card that St-Pierre fights on in his return to action.

Before anyone should even fathom a superfight between St-Pierre and Silva, the Canadian believes he still has a lot of work to do at welterweight.

“I feel like I have a lot of guys that are there and I don’t understand why people are going crazy now, but I just came back from an injury, so maybe some people see me as a weak link. We’ll see what’s going to happen in the future,” said St-Pierre.
