Fans Talking Dana White Into Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre

“This is what I believe. I believe my job is to put on fights that people want to see. I keep hearing that and enough people want to see it. I guess I’m gonna have to do it… The fight doesn’t really make all that much sense to me. Because Georges St. Pierre is a true 170 pounder. Anderson Silva at 185 has moved up to 205 and done very well at that weight. I see him moving up, not moving down. … I do like Anderson Silva at 205 pounds. That’s a natural weight for him.”

—Dana White, on Dan LeBatard’s radio show, giving in to fans’ requests for Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre

Nice, but this probably won’t be the “big, huge fight” Dana promised to put on free TV to make up for that crapfest Anderson Silva put on at UFC 112, will it?
