UFC president Dana White declared as much during a UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche question and answer session prior to the official weigh-ins on Friday.
“GSP is going to defend his title against Nick Diaz. Anderson Silva will defend his title this summer, and before the end of this year we will soon see a superfight with either GSP and Anderson Silva, or Anderson Silva and Jon Jones,” said White. “One of them is coming.”
Asked about where the event would take place, White could only confirm that it will be in an arena.
“If we end up doing a superfight with Anderson and GSP, it will be in a big arena somewhere. It will either be in Vegas, out here in L.A. It could be Texas. It could be Canada. It could be Brazil,” said White.
The UFC president has been hoping that, after years of trying, they can finally get the green light to operate in New York this year. He has targeted New York City for his promotion’s 20th anniversary event in November. An Anderson Silva superfight would certainly fit the bill for such an affair, but White gave no indication that those are his plans.
