Anderson Silva will be cageside for Georges St. Pierre vs Carlos Condit, possibly to challenge GSP post-fight

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Anderson Silva will be in attendance for Georges St. Pierre's bout with Carlos Condit at UFC 154. Silva's manager says that Anderson may challenge GSP after the fight.

The wheels may be in motion for the first UFC "superfight" since Georges St. Pierre took on then lightweight champion B.J. Penn at UFC 94. When St. Pierre takes on Carlos Condit on November 17 at UFC 154, middleweight champ Anderson Silva will be cageside.

MMA Fighting says that it could very well be to challenge GSP after the fight:

Silva's manager, Jorge Guimaraes, hinted to MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani on the Tuesday night edition of Fuel TV's UFC tonight that a challenge is forthcoming if St-Pierre defeats Condit.

Asked why Silva, who isn't known to often show up at fights other than his own, is heading to Montreal, Gumaraes said "maybe to challenge GSP if he beats Condit."

Of course, beating Condit remains a might big "if."

GSP is coming off a major knee injury and hasn't been in the cage since April of 2011, a 19 month layoff. Expecting him to come back in top form and beat a very, very talented Condit may be asking too much.

It will be interesting to see if the UFC would try to pursue a champion vs. champion superfight between Silva and Condit, if they'd choose to go with a Condit vs. GSP rematch or if they'd let Condit start defending his title against other welterweight champions.
