George St. Pierre vs Anderson Silva Super Fight in the works.

 Anderson Silva Vs George St.Pierre is a Dream fight that has long been kicked around by fans as the ultimate must-see super fight! Pitting the undisputed king of the middleweight division Anderson Silva and his 16 fight win streak against the undisputed welter weight king pin 22-2 George St. Pierre. Well, according to sources close to both fighters, the fans dream fight, might be coming to reality. 

Dave Meltzer via MMAmania:
"Apparently, "The Spider" is kicking around the notion of vacating the middleweight title and moving down to welterweight to challenge division champion Georges St. Pierre for a superfight we know the promotion is already hoping to put it together, assuming "Rush" is able to defeat Carlos Condit when they tussle at UFC 154 in November."
 and "the Spider" isn't the only one down for the mega fight, with St.Pierre's trainer, Firas Zihabi claiming GSP would be willing to fight Silva at a catchweight:

Firas Zihabi via MMA Mania:
 "Georges St-Pierre told me he wants (to fight Anderson Silva). But right now he has to get back on the horse and fight Carlos Condit and be champion again. He needs to keep focused. (If the Silva fight happens) ideally I'd like a catch weight. I think it'd be more fair. If you fight at a catch weight, Silva won't be 20 pounds heavier. 177 or 178 pounds is much more fair."

So there you have it, the wheels are in motion for the fight of the century. What could possibly go wrong?
