Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre was the superfight draw back day.
Silva and St-Pierre were once considered to be two of the best pound sterling fighters in the world, but despite repeated appeals for weight reduction during their prime time, the dream of dreams never came to the fore.
For this reason, according to former middleweight champion Silva, is because St-Pierre never wanted to risk.
Speaking with ESPN Brett Okamoto in a recent interview, The Spider accused the GSP of starting a big fight.
"This is an interesting battle, but Georges has never taken the challenge," Silva said. "Georges just goes, go, go, it's crazy. I do not think George wants to fight – but that's fine. I respect Georges, he's a great fighter." Maybe he just has another opinion – it's easy to fight. It's not me. liked the big problems in my life. "
St-Pierre chose the five-year-old throne and came out last year to retire in order to host Michael Bisping as the middleweight title. Rush finally presented Bisping to become a two-division champion, while Canada was accused of having the lightest fight available and criticized for not protecting the title against the top bidder. St-Pierre abandoned his lumbar bone after diagnosis of ulcerative colitis in 2017, and the 37-year-old has not announced that he will return soon.
Silva follows St-Pierre's achievements, but is convinced that he never really wanted to challenge himself.
"Georges is very happy and very cute. He never gives a fight if it's not easy," Silva continued. "It's a question. Georges, for me, is a great fighter, but he never takes on real challenges in life. It's my opinion. I honored him, but it's my opinion."
Silva will capture the rising average prospect of Israel's Adesani at UFC 234. The PPV will take place on February 10 next year at the Rod Lavra Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
