Silva vs. St. Pierre super fight has potential catchweight limit, venue
UFC president Dana White joined “UFC Tonight” on FUEL TV this week, stating that, if St. Pierre defeats interim champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154 this November, the Canadian star would meet the Brazilian star at 180 lbs.
Furthermore, White revealed that the bout would take place at Cowboys Stadium, which consists of 105,000 seats.
They’ll probably do the fight at 180 (lbs.),” White said on “UFC Tonight.”
“If that happens, it will probably happen at Dallas’ Texas Stadium.”
Silva last competed at the hugely successful UFC 148 this past July, earning a technical knockout win over fierce rival Chael Sonnen, who was the only man to truly threaten Silva inside the cage.
Meanwhile, St. Pierre has not competed since an April of 2011 win over Jake Shields at UFC 129. The victory was his sixth consecutive title defense.
“These guys want to fight each other now,” White said on “UFC Tonight.” “If you’re a fighter and you’ve dominated as long as Anderson has, and you’ve been great as long as Georges has, you finally want to say, ‘I want to test myself. I think I can beat this guy.'”
