A dream fight in the UFC that has been years in the making could soon be coming to fruition, and we now know where it is planning to be held. Appearing Tuesday on Fuel TV's "UFC Tonight," UFC President Dana White said that if UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre were to defeat Carlos Condit in November at UFC 154, his next opponent could very well be UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Ariel Helwani asked White just how close we are to seeing this fight. "I think we are pretty close," White said. "If George St-Pierre beats Condit, that could be the next fight." Rumors began swirling two weeks ago that the UFC could be targeting Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas to hold a major UFC card in early 2013, and White all but confirmed the rumors on Tuesday. "If that fight happens it will probably happen at Dallas," White said. White spoke of the venue as Texas Stadium, which was the old home of the Dallas Cowboys and imploded in 2010. White said the two would probably meet at a catch weight of 180 pounds. Cowboys Stadium is no stranger to huge fighting events. It has been the home to two Manny Pacquiao fights since it opened in 2010. Pacquiao defeated Joshua Clottey in front of 50,994 on March 13, 2010. Pacquiao scored a unanimous decision win over Antonio Margarito on November 13, 2010 at the venue before 41,734. Cowboys Stadium can seat over 100,000 for major events, and a fight of the magnitude would have a great shot at breaking the UFC's all-time attendance record which is currently held by UFC 129 where over 55,000 fans packed the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada to witness St-Pierre defend his title against Jake Shields in April, 2011.
