Anderson Silva Remains Highly Interested In GSP Fight As UFC 153 Nears

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was asked by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani if a potential super-fight with Georges St-Pierre is still on his mind.

“Yeah, this is my focus,” Silva responded.

Silva, who is currently set to face Stephan Bonnar this Saturday night at UFC 153, has been more outspoken in recent months concerning a bout with St-Pierre.

GSP is locked in a title-fight with Carlos Condit for next month, but could be the first fight of 2013 for Silva if he can defeat Condit.

UFC president Dana White has stated in the past that both Silva and GSP need to continue winning in order for the bout to come together. He’s also said everything concerning the two has been “all talk” for now.
