Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre? Not so fast. The middleweight champ still has a contender to beat in Yushin Okami at UFC Rio.

UFC President, Dana White, confirmed on USA Today last Wednesday that the Silva vs GSP superfight is yet to come. Apparently, middleweight champion – Anderson Silva – will face Yushin Okami at UFC Rio this August 27.

Yushin Okami earned a title shot after defeating Nate Marquardt last year. However, following Anderson Silva’s victory over Vitor Belfort, most fans thought that the match on the horizon for the champ is the Silva vs GSP superfight. Still, George St-Pierre has an up coming bout against Jake Shields at UFC 129.

After Belfort, Silva Awaits GSP

After Anderson Silva beats Vitor Belfort with a smashing front kick, will a Silva vs GSP superfight push through next?

After defending his middleweight title belt against Vitor Belfort last Saturday, it’s pretty obvious that Anderson Silva will do anything to leave a legacy in UFC. Now that The Spider was able to give his contender a clean KO via front kick, will the Silva vs GSP superfight be the next in line? It seems likely. And that’s coming from the UFC President, Dana White, himself.

“It’s looking like we are doing the Silva-GSP fight. If GSP wins his next fight, that will probably be the fight we’ll do. Georges made it clear that he’ll take the fight, and I think Anderson is ready to go, too. They’re both champions. I’ve got to figure out the [Yushin] Okami part of this thing. Somebody is going to be pissed.”

And it seems that MMA fans will be in for a big pound-for-pound fight in the horizon.
