A lot of reports have come out recently making the GSP/Silva super fight seem like it won't happen. But St. Pierre's coach says the Welterweight champ wants the fight.

In the wake of UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre's successful return to action, one of the biggest topics of conversation has been whether or not he'll face Middleweight champ Anderson Silva. Talk of the super fight has been going on for years now, but it picked up a lot of steam leading into UFC 154. Since then, negotiations seem to have become difficult with arguments about what weight the fight should take place at and what 'terms' need to be met.

Most recently, Silva's manager stated that he doesn't believe GSP even wants the fight. St. Pierre's coach Firas Zahabi countered that claim to CBC Sports:

He told me yes. But I think there's a lot to be negotiated. I don't know much more than that.

As we reported a couple weeks ago UFC president Dana White stated his intentions to speak with both fighters' camps following UFC 154. Although we've heard a lot from the coaches, no news has come out on how these meetings have gone.

What do you think? Should GSP vs. Silva go down?
