Found November 07, 2012 on 5thRound.com:
During this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight, it was reported reigning middleweight king Anderson Silva (Pictured) will be sitting front and center watching the welterweight title unification bout between champion Georges St-Pierre and interim champ Carlos Condit at UFC 154. That normally wouldn’t be news considering most MMA fans don’t miss a GSP scrap, especially since he’s coming off a 19-month hiatus. However, Silva rarely attends UFC events as merely a spectator and this one is all the way in Canada. Furthermore, the rumor mill has been buzzing that a fantasy fight between Silva and St-Pierre could come to fruition if the French-Canadian makes a triumphant return. Could Silva be crossing the boarder to take first-hand notes because he knows something we don’t? Will UFC officials ask him to greet a victorious GSP inside the Octagon and tell him he ‘wasn’t impressed by his performance’ so they can use that footage to promote their impending blockbuster bout? Conspiracy theorists are putting their thoughts together and fanboys are running wild with the endless possibilities. UFC 154 takes place November 17th in St-Pierre’s backyard of Montreal. One more reason to drop $54.95 on the pay-per-view broadcast?
