SILVA-ST. PIERRE TO GO OFF AT 180

Dana White intimated that the superfight of superfights, Silva-St. Pierre, will be fought at 180, meaning GSP would have to come up to meet Silva. Said White:

“They’ll probably do the fight at 180 (pounds),” he said. “At one point, it sounded like Anderson wanted to go to 170. He wanted to take Georges’ welterweight title. Then it was 180, the catch weight, because Georges doesn’t want to go to ’85. Georges said, ‘If I have to make a move to go to ’85, I’d have to stay at ’85.’ So we figured a 180-pound catch weight makes sense.

“If that fight happens, it will probably happen at Dallas’ Texas Stadium.”
