UFC President Dana White has been openly discussing the likelihood of a bout between Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva for the past few weeks, even going so far as to say the company would likely look to book it in Cowboys Stadium at some point in early 2013 if GSP defeats Carlos Condit on November 17 at UFC 154. However, as someone who just saw 18 months of his career slip away due to injury, St-Pierre himself isn’t wasting any energy thinking about a clash with his fellow long-time champion because he understands every fight could be his last.
St-Pierre addressed the matter in a recent interview where he said his mind is only on today, not tomorrow.
“I focus only on the present moment. That’s what I’ve learned in my career. Don’t focus on the future because you never know what’s gonna happen. Things change. I’m not speculating. I’m thinking about Condit right now; that’s what I should do,” explained St-Pierre in an interview with MMAWeekly.
The 31-year old St-Pierre also pointed to the remaining challenges he has at 170 pounds regardless of the UFC’s desire to see him face Silva, saying, “I feel like I have a lot of guys that are there and I don’t understand why people are going crazy now.”
