Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White confirmed late Saturday he is going to set up a superfight between welterweight George St. Pierre and middleweight Anderson Silva.

 

And it could happen at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

 

"I'm gonna make the GSP fight... probably around May," White said of his plans for Silva, according to the UFC Twitter account.

 

 

The Canadian St. Pierre kept the hope for the superfight alive by unifying the welterweight title in his return to the octagon, unanimously outpointing Carlos Condit in a bloody fight Saturday night at UFC 154 in Montreal.

 

But White has gave three options for the location of the megafight.

 

"There's three great venues that you could do, we could go to Toronto - a huge stadium there, (Cowboys) Stadium or you could do a soccer stadium in Brazil," White said earlier this month.

 

White has said numerous times he would like to host a UFC event at Arlington's 'incredible' Cowboys Stadium, which could break the record for largest UFC crowd of 55,724 for UFC 129 on April 30, 2011 in Toronto.

 

White said earlier this month the UFC and the Cowboys have been talking for a while, and "believe me they're pumped and ready whenever we can bring an event there they're ready for it."

 

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in September he was a fan of bringing the long-awaited fight to Texas.

 

"We want to have the big event," Jones said. "That's a goal and a dream of mine to have as a big of a sporting event when we can at Cowboys Stadium. I can assure you that I’m on the incentive plan to get them in there."

 

St. Pierre returned from a long injury layoff, but looked fresh Saturday night. The judges scored it almost a shutout for St. Pierre at 49-46, 50-45, 50-45.

 

But should St. Pierre fight one of the scariest guys in his division next instead?

 

In the co-main event, welterweight Johny Hendricks, who trains in Arlington, knocked out Martin Kampmann in 46 seconds. Hendricks (14-01) threw a right, then nailed Kampmann (20-6) with a left, sending him flying backward. Hendricks hit the Dane one more time on the ground before the referee stepped in.

Hendricks mimed holding the championship belt around his waist as he celebrated this fifth straight win.

 

"Please, please give me a shot at the belt," Hendricks said, who wants to fight GSP next.

 

Hendricks, St-Pierre and Carlos Condit each earned $70,000 bonuses for their fights according to mmajunkie.com

 

St. Pierre (23-2) fought for the first time since April 2011 following reconstructive knee surgery after a training injury. Condit won the interim title during the Canadian's absence, beating Nick Diaz in February.

 

"People talk about ring rust. I definitely know what it is now," St. Pierre said. "Credit to Carlos, he definitely gave me my toughest fight."

 

As for Silva, the 37-year-old Brazilian met the media before the card started, declaring his interest in meeting St. Pierre somewhere between their two weight classes. St. Pierre wouldn't commit right away.

 

Anderson Silva

 

"I need to take some vacation and think about it," St. Pierre said.

Anderson Silva is a destroyer lol he is the Muhamad Ali of MMA and is going to be a legend of the sport GSP is great but i think he will loose to Silva Silva is currently MMA's best if he was a boxer hed make more money than mayweather easy infact i think he would beat Mayweather by taking him down and snapping an arm or something no disrespect on Mayweather though

As much I think GSP is the best welterweight MMA fighter ever, overtaking Matt Hughes for that title. A superfight with Anderson is suicide. Silva's unbelievable accuracy and ability to dodge is what makes him so damn dangerous. Watch, Anderson will play along, and get taken down, but he will finish GSP.

@Kang if your gonna state facts then get them right. Gsp walks @ 180-195 lbs pending fights and gains most of that weight back after he cuts to 70. He is a big Welterweight. Step your knowledge up before you post ignorant comments on the sport. This is a Catch-Weight fight and GSP has a very good chance at beating Silva by out pointing him, GSP is a smart fighter.

Anderson his going to smash him!
