UFC boss White: Belt wouldn't be on line if Anderson Silva met Georges St-Pierre at 170
November 22, 2012 (01:45) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie ]
Following his win over Carlos Condit this past Saturday, UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre questioned whether he needed to gain weight at all to fight middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva. Silva, he said, fought in PRIDE at 168 pounds and possibly carried the kind of frame suited to weight gains and drops - unlike him. Silva again expressed his desire to fight St-Pierre following UFC 154. And while UFC President Dana White still hopes to make the match in 2013, one incentive would likely be off the table if Silva dropped to welterweight: GSP's belt. More...

Hometown advantage: On the scene in Montreal for Georges St-Pierre's return
November 20, 2012 (03:15) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie ]
When trying to gauge the enthusiasm level of the crowd at a UFC event, I find it's helpful to measure the reaction by what I like to call "The Buffer Index." It's not exactly scientific, but what it lacks in technical expertise it more than makes up for in pure simplicity. It all boils down to how much of Bruce Buffer's pre-fight introductions you can actually hear over the noise of the crowd before the main event. If you can hear it all, that's zero Buffers. Every other word? Half a Buffer. Almost none at all? That's your rare Full Buffer. More...

November 19, 2012 (20:30) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie ]
For all the things Georges St-Pierre does well, absorbing blows without showing damage isn't one of them. It's easy to forget that, because the man usually just doesn't get hit all that often. Most of the time he shows up to the post-fight press conference looking like, at worst, he'd stumbled into a prickly bush while cutting across someone's lawn on the way over here. This time was different. By the time the third round of his title fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 154 had ended, St-Pierre's face had already begun to resemble a Rubik's Cube left out in the rain.
