Anderson Silva vs Georges St-PierreUFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will be cage side at UFC 154 when Georges St-Pierre faces Carlos Condit for the undisputed welterweight championship.

Silva’s presence is notable for essentially one reason – because he plans on calling out St-Pierre if he’s victorious at UFC 154.

According to UFC President Dana White, Silva will be making the trip to Montreal to root St-Pierre on while he fights Carlos Condit, and then likely step into the Octagon and challenge him when the fight is over.

“There’s no doubt Anderson Silva (is) showing up to cheer Georges St-Pierre on, and he wants him to win this fight. He wants to fight him after. So I would say yes (he will challenge him in the cage),” said White on Wednesday.

Silva last fought at UFC 153 where he toyed with and then dismantled Stephan Bonnar in his home country of Brazil.

Since that time there’s been a lot of speculation for what Silva would do next in his career, and it appears all of his chips are in the basket of facing St-Pierre in a super fight assuming he’s victorious in Montreal.

For his part, St-Pierre could care less that Silva will be lurking cage side while he’s attempting to defend his belt.

“I don’t care about Anderson Silva, he can do whatever he wants, he can go to Florida or stay in Brazil if he wants. I’m focusing on Carlos Condit. That’s all that matters to me,” St-Pierre stated.

The subject of Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre continued to come up frequently during a media call on Wednesday, but UFC President Dana White down played the notion that the fight is a done deal by any means.

Still with Silva planning on being in Montreal with the idea of calling out St-Pierre when the fight is over, just about everyone will be playing the speculation game until the main event takes place on Nov 17.
