Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre has been the dream superfight for many fans for years. After Silva's destruction of Chael Sonnen at UFC 148, it may be closer to reality than ever before.
Silva's manager, Ed Soares, told MMAJunkie.com that Silva could possibly make the cut to 170 pounds or that a catchweight fight is possible. Before I break this down, I think we need to settle on a weight for the fight, and 178 pounds seems fair.
GSP is still scheduled to defend his welterweight crown against interim champion Carlos Condit later this year, but for the sake of this breakdown, let's act as if he passes that test with flying colors.
The potential superfight would be an excellent marquee bout for a stadium show in 2013. The fight would sell itself. The two most dominant champions in UFC history squaring off against one another at a catchweight to see who is the more skilled fighter.
If this is the matchup that most interests you proceed for a head-to-toe breakdown of the potential superfight.
