UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva apparently has Georges St. Pierre firmly in his sights, and believes that the outcome of GSP's expected UFC 154 bout with Carlos Condit doesn't matter. In an interview with Sport TV, Anderson made it clear that he wants to face GSP next even if he loses to Condit:

"Regardless of who wins, even if St. Pierre loses, a fight with me can happen. A fight like this is above anything else. St. Pierre is one of the greatest of the UFC. Right now, a fight with Condit is meaningless."

Silva has been in the news a lot lately. He defeated his nemesis Chael Sonnen at UFC 148, and apparently turned down a bout with top contender Chris Weidman because it didn't interest him. His camp brought up names like GSP and Rich Franklin instead, and lately it's been GSP he's focusing on. Silva also reportedly offered to step up and fight at light heavyweight at UFC 151 to save the card, even though he was out of shape.

The bout with GSP would likely take place at a 178-pound catchweight.
