Silva told FUEL TV that he liked the performance of St-Pierre and noticed that this was a new St-Pierre that was in the cage.

“I like the performance of Georges because he had control of the situation on the ground and up. I like it,” Silva said. “I am watching and I see a new Georges. It’s good.”

With St-Pierre winning, Silva now has his sights set on a super fight and he hopes that this will be his next fight, but it’s not his decision.

“Yeah, this is my plan, but it is not my decision. I am here to work for the UFC. I have my plans, Georges has his plans, but we both need to talk to Dana and Lorenzo because this is the biggest fight in the world.”

UFC President Dana White stated after the fights last night that he plans to talk to Silva in the next two weeks, but Silva is hoping to speak to him today. He did recently say that he did not plan on returning until the end of 2013 and just wants to have proper time to train for St-Pierre.

“I need time for training, for talking with my coach, talking with my doctor to start my camp to train for a big fight. I am ready, but I need time to prepare for this fight.”
