Rumblings of a potential superfight between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and welterweight titleholder Georges St-Pierre have been recently rejuvenated by Silva calling for the mega match-up and St-Pierre responding that he’s open to the idea.
UFC president Dana White has even added fuel to the fire by indicating that fight could happen as soon as early next year should GSP get past Carlos Condit at UFC 154 in November.
Imaginations have run wild, as well, about possible match-ups for light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who recently stated he could make the move to heavyweight as soon as 2013.
Michael “The Count” Bisping recently weighed in on the possibilities during an online chat hosted by MMAWeekly.com content partner Yahoo! Sports.
“It is a business and I think Anderson vs. GSP would be astronomical numbers,” said Bisping. “I think Jones vs. JDS (Junior dos Santos) would be awesome too. Everyone wants to see champ vs. champ.”
The potential superfights seem closer to reality now than ever before and Bisping gave his predictions.
“I think Anderson beats GSP and Jon Jones; and JDS beats Jones,” said the middleweight contender.
St-Pierre, of course, has to get past interim champion Carlos Condit and Jones has a scheduled fight with Vitor Belfort looming at UFC 152, but if all works out, we could see both of those superfights in 2013.
