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.

According to UFC president Dana White, reigning middleweight king Anderson Silva will be the biggest Georges St-Pierre (Pictured) fanboy when he’s sitting front row watching UFC 154, despite the fact the event jumps off in GSP’s backyard of Montreal. Guess who couldn’t care less about “The Spider’s” presence?
“Well, there’s no doubt Anderson Silva’s showing up there...
“I don’t care about (Anderson Silva). He can do what he wants. I’m focusing on (Carlos Condit).” Georges St.Pierre
Rumor has it that Anderson Silva will be at the GSP vs Condit fight and plans on challenging GSP for the first UFC superfight? Untill then, “The Spider” was making time for the kids. I wish he would challenge Jon Jones.
