Anderson Silva will be in attendance at UFC 154

UFC 154 takes place next Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal and will be headlined by welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre making his return to the UFC and he will face interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit in a unification bout.

It has been widely talked about that a win by St-Pierre over Condit could set up a potential super fight with St-Pierre and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

During Wednesday’s UFC 154 media conference call, UFC President Dana White confirmed that Silva will be in attendance next Saturday night.

Silva (33-4) has made it known that he would like his next fight to be against St-Pierre, but he has win next Saturday before that can happen.

If Condit defeats St-Pierre next week, White said that Condit will not face Silva in a super fight and that he will defend the welterweight title against the next contender. If St-Pierre does defeat Silva, the middleweight champion will likely confront him in the cage and it could set up a fight in 2013.

The UFC has openly talked about the potential of this fight and having that fight take place in a stadium. White stated yesterday that there are three options the UFC has for a stadium show which are Toronto, Dallas and Brazil.

At this time, St-Pierre has not said if he would take a fight against Silva after Condit and he could elect to defend his title instead of fighting the middleweight champion at a catchweight.
