A super-fight between pound-for-pound studs Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva appears to be one step closer to becoming reality rather than rumor. Though nothing official has surfaced, one of GSPâ€™s most trusted sources has come forward to reveal heâ€™s spoken to the UFC welterweight champ who indicated a showdown with Silva was an appealing thought.
According to Firas Zahabi, who coaches St-Pierre at TriStar MMA, â€œRushâ€ is down to rumble with Silva but made it clear fans shouldnâ€™t get TOO excited just yetâ€¦
â€œHe told me yes. But I think thereâ€™s a lot to be negotiated. I donâ€™t know much more than that.â€
â€œAfter a fight like that (against Condit), he needs time off.â€
