Georges St-Pierre Vs. Anderson Silva Talks Heat Back Up Again

Poor Johny Hendricks.

First, Hendricks defeats Martin Kampmann to secure the “No. 1 contender” slot at welterweight.

However, Nick Diaz returns and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre requests him for his next opponent.

After defeating Carlos Condit, “Bigg Rigg” is informed – again – that he will meet GSP next.

Well, that could be changed, as UFC president Dana White told members of the media Thursday that St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva could be put in place.

“Maybe he wants to fight Anderson if Anderson (defeats Chris Weidman),” White stated. “If Georges says to me, ‘I want to fight Anderson Silva,’ you think I’m going to go, ‘No you’re not – you’re fighting Johny Hendricks. We’ll talk about that later’?”

White added that St-Pierre could move back down to welterweight and defend his title against Hendricks following the Silva bout.

Of course, all of this is still just a work in progress, as Silva must defeat Weidman and both sides need to agree to the contest.

Still, you can’t help but feel for Johny Hendricks in this situation.
